Is the UFC too hard on Forrest Griffen?

I mean look at his past fights, and possible his next fight, Forrest Griffen is probably my favorite fighter, because he'll fight anybody, he never backs down and has alot of heart. But it seems they never really give the guy a break his past opponents bonnar, tito, jardine, sinosic. All decent if not above average fighters, which he has defeated all of them if you think about it, he beat bonnar twice, bonnar beat jardine, i think he should have won the decision in the tito fight. I just hope he doesnt get a back to back loss if hes going to face tito again in a rematch which i hope he doesnt.

No. If he can't fight who they put in front of him maybe he shouldn't be in the UFC (I like him a lot too don't get me wrong). But he has to improve if he wants to compete and he's only going to do that by training hard and fighting tough opponents.

Too hard on him? O_o

I don't really see how they are hard on him. LHW is sort of a tough division to fight in. Eventually he had to fight Tito. A lot of fans wanted a Bonnar rematch. Jardine and him were both up and commers in the LHW. All of his fights so far sort of make sense. Even a Tito rematch

No, he's been around a while. He's got to fight decent fighters now. If he can't win he can't be in the UFC.

"bonnar beat jardine"

That was a crock, Jardine defintately won that match IMO.

his fights make plenty of sense. if he's trying to move into contender status he's gonna have to fight the best of the division.

No i dont think they are being too hard on him, because if he wants to move up in the rankings then he eventually will have to fight tougher fighters.
