Tyson Griffin Plans To Push Franca To The Limit

GriffinAnjosUFN18_003.jpg


Ask any professional fighter and they’re likely to tell you that they’ve never gone into a bout 100-percent healthy.

But every once in a while, when punching someone in the face, and often getting punched back, is your way of earning a living, you do have to take a step back and let your body recover.

That’s exactly where UFC lightweight Tyson Griffin found himself after his last bout. He scored a unanimous decision over a tough Rafael dos Anjos on April 1, but after amassing a 6-2 record against some of the best fighters in the Octagon, his body was telling him it was time for rejuvenation.

“I had a little bit of a break, healed up some bumps and bruises, things like that,” Griffin told MMAWeekly.com his first week back in the gym after three months with a “Gone Fishing” sign hanging on his front door.

Heading into his bout against Hermes Franca at UFC 103 next week in Dallas, Griffin realizes there’s a lot at stake. Having suffered a hiccup against Sean Sherk in October of last year, a win over a fellow top fighter on top of the win over dos Anjos puts him right back in the championship mix.

“A dominant win against Hermes Franca would put me back in the contender runnings.”

He realizes that’s no easy task against Franca.

“That guy’s in it for the long haul. He’s gonna knock you out in the third round if you’re not paying attention or he’s gonna catch you in a submission if you’re sloppy,” assessed Griffin. “I’m gonna fight him smart and fight him hard and hopefully bring the pace so he doesn’t have that knockout power in the third, and doesn’t have that submission strength in the third.

“I’m excited to get in crazy shape and push Hermes to the limit.”



(Watch the entire Tyson Griffin UFC 103 interview, conducted just after he returned to training in preparation for Hermes Franca.)




Tyson Griffin always brings it in his fights and this will be another exciting fight! This 103 card in general is going to be fun to watch! Oh yea and once again I will be there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm looking forward to seeing Tyson fight again, he always leaves it all in the ring and rarely has an un-exciting fight. Franca can scrap with the best of em but I think Tyson'll take the decision.

You got that right. I would bet my left nut that this fight goes to a decision. Most of the LW fights are usually 3 round decision borefests.

We've had this debate many times and decisions don't necessarily mean boring fights. Tyson's one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC. His fights against Sherk and Dos Anjos were some of the better light-weight fights of recent times.

I think Franca will knock him out in the first.
