The latter round one Keith Jardine lands a huge right uppercut followed by a left to drop Forrest Griffin. Jardine attacks the down Griffin and beats him till referee John McCarthy stops the fight 4:41 of the first round. What a shock.

Chris Leben (16-2) vs. Jason Macdonald (17-7)
This is a well matched fight. I think Leben always has a punchers chance of KOing MacDonald. But MacDonald has a good chance of using the clinch on Leben. If the fight goes to the ground MacDonald has the advantage.
Michael Bisping (11-0) vs. Eric Schafer (7-1-2)
Finally we will see Bisping take on a strong opponent in Schafer. If the fight stays up Bisping has the clear advantage. If the fight goes to the ground Eric Schafer has the advantage with his BJJ background.
Forrest Griffin (13-3) vs. Keith Jardine (11-2-1)
This fight guarantees to be a battle. Both fighter can throwdown. I think Griffin is going to me more active. Griffin also has a great chin and I don’t see Keith Jardine finishing Griffin. This should be the best battle of the night.
Andrei Arlovski (9-3) vs. Marcio Cruz (2-1)
Finally Andrei Arlovski is back in the UFC ring. His opponent Marcio Cruz should be a good stepping stone back into Heavyweight contention. I have Arlovski taking this fight easily.
I have it Andrei Arlovski by KO Round 1 over Marcio Cruz.
Chuck Liddell (19-3) vs. Tito Ortiz (15-4)
Chuck Liddell is the heavy favorite in this fight. Liddell will probably win quickly and decisively over Tito Ortiz. That said I am putting my money on a Tito Ortiz to upset Chuck Liddell. I think this is one of those fights that makes history.
