He really needs to win his next fight. I dont think he is in any danger of being cut, he just needs a win to get his mind right. As stated before, im sure this loss has had a mentally devastating affect on him.

If I were Forrest, I would have put this interview out as a feeler which he probably did. Then read the feedback online which he prolly will or someone from his camp. Then I would have the sit down interview with the criticism dialed in...1. answer questions about the Silva fight 2. Look confident 3. Get the sense of humor back....tough to do but this guy will be beloved again as soon as he does.

Hell yeah that interview was awkward but Griffin has charisma and can dial it back in. At least people are "worried" about him and not saying the guy sucks ass and should retire...well most arent (Im keeping my mouth shut coz I don't kick people when they are down.) I say let Forrest start from square one. He needs at least A COUPLE easy fights and I mean Houston Alexander easy.

As a fan I can't stand Forrest Griffin but he's good for the sport and whether I like him or not I can't deny his contribution to the UFC. I think you have to reward contributions like that for life and Dana White has said he would.

He's crearly got some anxiety, I'll give him about a month or two till he gets mad. That's how it goes, when you get knocked down you eventually get back up and get mad. Someone needs to just talk to him, I predict it now, he's going to come back in an interview and talk about how he's changed his mindset and his training and how he handled the Silva thing. He clearly hasn't dealt with it yet, he hasn't even accepted it, poor guy has the weight of the world on his shoulders.

I read his book and he seems like a very mental fighter (i dont mean that in a bad way, just dont have a more eloquent way of putting it). He spends a lot of time talking about his mental preparation for his fights. Im sure he will be back in the right state of mind eventually.

Woah... Forrest really didn't want to do that... I feel bad for him, he was covering his awkwardness with humour. He'll be back though!

I think people are misinterpreting his denial as arrogance. Forrest really needs some guidance from somebody who has been to the top and lost it because he clearly isn't getting it. I feel bad for him, mostly because I used to be like him so it's super easy to recognize that anxiety.

Let me explain myself. First off I don't consider franklin or griffen as good strikers, I would call them bad strikers. To me good strikers are anderson silva, vitor belfort, anthony johnson, nate marquart etc etc

I think forrest is a douche because instead of anwsering questions he just makes a little smart ass joke and thinks everything is ok. Well it;s not. I hope to see him destroyed again.
