The way he talks and clenches his teeth it reminds me of Owen Wilson for some reason. I don't mind that he's gone...

What was up with Forest saying no to the armbar in tonights fight? IMO if you see an opportunity to end the fight then go for it. I know he wanted to win but it's much better not letting it go to the judges hands.

For how little experience he has, I was very impressed by Riddle. He had some nice takedowns, and it took a while for an experienced black belt to submit him. With the right training he could be a good fighter.

Yeah no doubt. I think he needs to mature and take things a little more seriously.

Yeah, for example, trying to submit a BJJ guy from his guard was not very smart. But that's something he'll learn not to do with experience.

I really liked Riddle for his playful nature and hoped he went far, but he had NO clue what he was doing in that fight. Riddle got the better of almost every exchange, but for some reason tried to take th JJ guy down, and many of his TD attempts were from awful angles that the JJ guy could sprawl from easily. You see this especialy in the second round where riddle has him rocked and had a good chance of KOing him he refused to stand and took him down, where he was shortly after submitted. With that said, he's still very young, and just an MMA starter with 1 fight under his belt, so I think he'll eventually grow, sharpen his BJJ and overall fighting style, hell he might even get his license one day.

Also the JJ guy reminds me of Mac Danzic alot. They were both seasoned Vets, both had good ground skills, and decent striking. Even their attitudes are very alike. Don't be suprised if the JJ guy goes all the way.

BTW sorry for not knowing his name and calling him JJ guy, too lazy to search it up/change all the spots where I said JJ guy to his real name.

Riddle had a great game and held strong against a seasoned veteran and made an amateur mistake taking him back down but damn he showed potential out the ass man. It wont be the last we see of him thats for sure.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

Riddle has a lot of talent but the two guys who had any chance of beating him on team Forrest was Creuder and Rivera. He got the tougher of the two and while he hung tough and impressed me it was a real tough match up for him. The guy will be back unlike the guys from last season some of these guys are legit talents.

Oh man that sucks for you. Last weeks episode had a great fight, hopefully you watched the fight on the internet since then. If you haven't, I would highly recommend you go do that right now.
