I didn't read all 5 pages so I'm sorry if this is a repeat, but I think Rich Franklin would be a perfect fight for him.

2 decent strikers who are nice guys and would fight fair and square.

Hook it up UFC!

It's hilarious that if this was BJ Penn or Tito Ortiz, he'd be getting crucified on this forum for this kind of crap. The way this guy is defended on this forum makes me believe he's the next coming of Christ. I mean, really? Forrest is the victim and the fans and media are the ones to blame? Wow.

People, Forrest is still catching shit because Forrest is STILL doing shit worth catching shit for. You act if he's done absolutely nothing and people are just randomly spewing off different shit.

Hopefully once people are finished cleaning up this guys menstrual bleeding instead of him cleaning it up himself, he'll get back into the cage. If only Wanderlei would stay at 205. Good probability of knocking this clown out.
I didn't say anyone was to blame. I simply pointed out that Griffin hasn't changed; he's been behaving the same way since day 1. My advice to him was to stop concerning himself so much with what people think, since I see that as the source of his need to constantly deflect with humor as well as run from the spotlight when his emotions get the better of him. I don't think him having living up to Alex_DeLarge's, my, or anyone else's idealization of an MMA fighter or public figure as a goal will benefit him, either as a fighter, or a person.

I'm not sure that an emotional reaction to what must have been a crushing loss equates "menstrual bleeding." I have other ideas as to what constitutes a man-period on this forum.

Whether or not Forrest is the victim, he's gotten back into the gym and gone back to the drawing board, and it's time to move one, like we eventually do whenever there's an incident of this nature in MMA.

Neither of them are decent strikers.And whats with this nice guy crap? Don't know about franklin but forrest doesn't seem "nice". He's just a douche with the IQ of a dead mouse. Everythings a smart ass little joke with him, and this loss didn;t even humble him. He's now blaming it on "ludes".

Basically Carson is pointing out this is Forrests coping mechanism....

This. I would like a full, calm interview where Forrest answers all questions in detail like anyone else. However, Forrest is clearly not yet ready to do this, and he's not asking any favors for anyone. He's handling this the way he needs to handle it. He doesn't owe anything to anyone, he just needs to fight, which he does. People giving him constant shit about that fight and why he hasn't spoken to the media is not only pointless but it's getting really old. The man will deal with things how he needs to deal with them.

Exactly. He's not there to do anyone any favors, that's not his job. He needs to cope up however he needs to do it, and for however long he needs to do it. There is no limit as to how long it takes a person to cope up or get over something in their life, we are all different.

The guy has had enough time to reflect. Shit, the guy got married which I'm sure was a great moment in his life. He should change his tampon and actually man up to this loss instead of avoiding the "tough" questions he knew he would be faced with, with these one word "funny" answers that he's obviously doing because he's still being a baby about the whole issue.

Again, this crap with "coping with peoples shit." Once again, Forrest is the victim and did nothing to earn this criticism. Haha, wow. Nice to see Forrest has to rely on his delusional fanboys to defend himself while he sits there pounding down his midol and being a jackass.
It might have been enough time for YOU to reflect. Tell me, is your name Forrest Griffin and did you just suffer a huge, humiliating and devastating loss in your career?

Everyone is different Alex, you can't put a time limit on how long someone needs to cope up, or HOW they need to cope up. If he could sit down, answer a lot of questions in detail, then that would be great. However, he doesn't feel comfortable doing that, and I don't blame him. Why should he sit down and answer questions in detail for bitches that constantly make fun of him and try to pull him down even now? Personally, I'd tell everyone to **** off and leave me alone, as they don't deserve an interview anyways with all the shit they have been talking.

Besides, at the end of the day, he did an interview in a basic, Forrest type of way. Cracked a few jokes, was somewhat calm, he DID answer the questions, although not to the degree some would have wanted.

People act as if he started crying in the middle of the interview and called it off half way through.

To be honest that loss was so humiliating that as a Forrest fan I don't even know what to say about it so I can't imagine how he feels. Basically this is the MMA equivalent to everyone wanting to ask you for an interview about the time you pissed your pants at the office Christmas party. There is nothing to say he was humbled and humiliated and really doesn't need to talk about it anymore than he see's fit. I didn't understand then and still don't understand why any of Forrest's post fight antics have ever been so much of an issue.

I guess I meant to say they will both exchange. You'll note that I said decent and not good. I'm sure they'd kick the crap out of us.

Forrest in his fight with Tito...Tito had a bad knee yet Forrest wouldn't attack it. He wanted to fight heads up instead of attacking an injury. I'm sure Rich would do the same thing.

My sentiments exactly, Forrest owes no one anything except a fight as long as he is contracted to do so. Interviews are completely voluntary so he deserves to do one on his own accord when and if he pleases.

I don't think many on here are familiar with the idea of failure, after spending so much time training and still coming short must hurt him deeply. I imagine he would have trained very hard for that fight and I think he truly believed he would have won, when he lost in the fashion he did I think it changed him, he probably started to doubt himself and the legitimacy of his talents as a mixed martial artist. Anyone who takes part in an individual sport like Boxing, MMA , tennis etc. Or even anyone who has spent the an academic year working hard at a subject but still failing, should understand the pain of putting lots of time and effort into something but still falling short at the pivotal moment. Some may take failures on the chin, and some will take longer to feel comfortable in talking about them such as Forrest. He owes no one anything except a fight and as long as he continues to do that, nobody can really have a legit complaint towards him.

Well at least he's talking again. I'm sure he'll be back and will probably be pretty determined to shake this loss out of his system.
