Forrest Griffin: "If I lose to Tito..."



There is video to this interview here, if you don't prefer the whole reading thing:

With all the sudden changes going on with UFC cards lately, one fight that appears to be intact is the trilogy between Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin at UFC 148.

It might not add any relevance toward the light-heavyweight division, but Ortiz and Griffin remain fan favorites within the company.

Griffin spoke to UFC.com about his third meeting with "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy."

"We're 1-1, we've had good fights. There's going to be some things that are tough to deal with. A good wrestler that comes down low, that comes with pressure, he's a tough guy to fight. He's still got a good overhand right, good shovel hook, he's got good punches, good knees, he's got a good Thai clinch. If you can stop him from coming forward, he's not so hard to fight. But when he's coming forward in that good stance, you can't tell if he's gonna throw a big bomb or shoot...that's tough to deal with."

"A lot of people ask me. They say 'Forrest, it's Tito's retirement fight. If you lose to Tito, are you going to retire?' If I lose to Tito, I'm going to retire from life...seriously."

Both fights have been memorable in their own right, but a third bout won't mean much for either competitor except for a victory on their professional record. Neither man is in their prime anymore, and a final fight between them will finally bring closure to one of the most exciting rivalries in recent memory.

It is possible that Griffin could retire with a win, seeing as how he doesn't stand a chance at receiving another title shot at this stage of his career.

Ortiz is set to retire following his match with Griffin, ending one of the most storied careers in UFC history.

I was going to say he should fight against Rich then I realized he did already. It's kinda sad but all the best fights with Griffin will be rematches; Rampages*, Bonnar, Tito, Shogun, and Anderson Silva*.

*Hasn't happened yet, but should.

Forrest has the potential to beat Tito, but i feel sometimes he doesn't take his fights seriously

and I still wanna see Forrest/Bonner in TUF

Ok... why hasn't this happened? If it doesn't, it would be a travesty.

I would be surprised if Forrest got back into the octagon with Silva again.

LOL! Yeah, um... do you hate Forrest or something?

Agreed with all the rest by the way... but pretty sure you'd have to pay him a couple mil to step back in with Anderson.

Gives a whole new meaning to "Anderson Silva money."

I think the main reason for there being no Griffin vs Bonnar TUF is that they seem to genuinely like each other, and TUF is still a reality show. The format doesn't work so well when people get along.

Bonnar has been asking for it for years.
