Give Forrest a break - as others have stated, he was rocked. From a medical standpoint, parts of the brain can be affected by a minor traumatic brain injury and lead to changes in mood and behaviour and confusion. Even if none of this is the case, he is an emotional fighter and very driven and I dont think anything he did was unacceptable.

I really dont see it as that big a deal. Like someone said earlyier in the thraed MMA is Griffins life. He trained very hard for the fight and screwed up. you cant really blame him for being emotional its the kind of guy he is. I know most of us (not all) dont train or compete in MMA so we really dont understand what these guys go though its easy to call Forrest a baby but put your self in his position hes a rising star who got stopped in the first round by a 3/1 underdog after so much hard work and training. He'll be back and tougher than ever.

Jardine did what Forrest should have done which was capitalize on a big hit. Forrest got Jardine with a good punch that he should have reacted on, but didn't, now Jardine got Forrest with two big hits and came in for the kill. Forrest is the only one to blame for his lose and he knows it. I didn't expect him to act that way, but I don't blame him either.

When you train as hard and as long as Forrest does emotions do get involved. MMA is his life and just like when fighters win the championship many of them cry tears of joy, if not on camera probably back stage. They cry because everything they had been working towards has finally come into their grasp, emotionally the same thing happens when you put your blood and sweat in and you lose sometimes it can be even more gut wrenching.

Well you dont exactly have any fans do you. Were not talking about crying when you missed your favorite show or failed a test. Were talking about all your fans cheering you on, being heavily favoured to win, and training your ass off till you about puke nearly every day for 8 weeks. All of that goes down the toilet. Hes kinda young and emotions can overwhealm someone easily....with the training he went through to get knocked out in the first round, to letting down all his fans, must be pretty disapointing and overwhealming. Even Tito teared up after Liddel handed his ass...provided he didnt run away, but hes also older and more experienced.

Not take it seriously?

Guy, A LOT of people like Forrest, I, personally, love him.

So what? He didn't stand in the ring and talked about just how bad he got his ass whooped.

Trust me, they'll get an interview with him and he'll talk about it after he watches the fight and everything.

I know, he might have been a 'little' rude, but, he probably couldn't even think straight.

A showing of him not being able to think straight - him leaving the wrong way.

And I'm sure most people that are making these smartass comments aren't real fighters either.

Some people really need to learn some ****ing respect for the people that bust THEIR asses to entertain you. There's some pathetic posts on this thread and they're not just coming from the thread starter.
Omg when will people realize griffin sucks. He is a B level reality tv fighter.. wtf did he ever do to deserve a title shot? He lost to Tito, and yes it was a legit decision, enough whining on that.. he was bloodied up like a stuck pig and Tito looked fresh as a daisy. He's beaten absolutely no one A level except Jeff Monson (by decision) but has lost to Tito, Horn, Severn and now Jardine. Even the ones he's won, he loses enough blood to look like he got hit by a truck and most of them are by decision. And all anyone can ever say is what heart he has! He's Rocky Balboa! That's all he is.. Dana White's worthless hyped up tv star that brings in the crowds because they publicize him as this Rocky figure that America just falls for. And the whole time they feed him cans to bolster that belief. I'm glad he got KTFO, maybe they'll shut up about him now
