Tyson Griffin: "He's going to get finished"

New Tyson Griffin interview.

On his loss to Sean Sherk...

"I dealt with it pretty good. It was kind of upsetting hearing that one of the judges scored it 30-27, but all in all, I proved to myself and the rest of the world that I can compete with a guy that some people have #3 in the world. I think maybe I respected him too much and if I fight him again, I would respect him a lot less. It would be a different story."

On his upcoming fight with Rafael Dos Anjos...

"I canít let somebody who really doesnít have a name in the UFC make a name off of me. Like you said, two losses in a row is not a good thing. Iíve been training hard like I usually do. Heís a real worthy opponent and heís got good striking and grappling and I gotta be sharp."

"Iím going to put the pressure on him because you know cardio is my biggest thing and if heís not in shape, heís going to get finished. Iím not making any promises or worrying about finishing the fight, but Iím definitely going to put pressure on him and bring it to him."

"Heís a worthy opponent. Heís got good standup and ground game. It looks like he got tired in his fight with Stephens and thatís what really hurt him. He was going forward the entire fight and in the 3rd round, he started going backwards right before he got knocked out. Iím going to push the pace and I hope he can keep up."

Well if it's anything like his last 6 fights, I expect we'll see an exciting knockout.
