When and where will UFC 106 take place? It will be held at the Mandalay bay Events Center in Las Vegas on November 21.

Lets take a quick gander at the scheduled main event.

Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin

Ortiz, 34, is making his first appearance in the octagon since he was defeated by Lyota “The Dragon” Machida back in 2008. Since, he has undergone surgery on his back, but nonetheless should be at his full fighting capacity come fight day.

Griffin on the other hand is coming off of a humiliating loss against the current middleweight champ Anderson “The Spider” Silva. However, in Griffin’s heyday he has credits for beating two of the UFC’s most legendary fighters – Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

This isn’t the first time that these two have rendezvoused either. Back in April of 2006 they went head two head, and in a controversial decision Ortiz took the match.

    Without the heavyweight main event, this fight card is just o.k. It is lacking any real starpower. The whole card is filled with mid-carders. The “new” main event should be entertaining, but c’mon ortiz hasn’t fought in well over year, and griffin is in a major slump,and is coming off the most humiliating loss of his career. Hardly a matchup worthy of a main event on a 50.00 ppv. I’ll be saving my fifty bucks for this one. This would have been an ideal fight card on spike…for free.
