Forrest Griffin Plans To ‘Fight His Face Off’ And Is Done Trying To Be Nice To Tito ‘He Just Said I’m Kind Of A P–sy, So F–k Him.’ | UFC News

Forrest Griffin in an interview with TATAME.

This weekend Forrest Griffin will face Tito Ortiz for the third time at UFC 148 when asked about his plans for the fight his plans were simple.

“It’s going to be the best fight ever. I’m gonna fight my face off and that’s all. For real.”

Ortiz suggested that Griffin should also retire after the bout. However Griffin has no plans of retiring any time soon.

“No. Not my last fight, Tito’s last fight. I’ll keep fighting. People say if I lose I’m gonna quit, but no. I’m still not gonna quit, but if I just win it’ll make it easier on everybody.”

When asked about his motivation for the bout with Ortiz.

“I’m very motivated. I tried to be nice and say nice things about Mr. Ortiz and talk about he’s a legend and he just said I’m kind of a p–sy, so f–k him.”

Forrest also discussed the Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen bout and he thinks Sonnen may have made a big mistake with all the trash talk aimed at Silva and Brazil.

“Chael did really good the first time and nobody saw that coming, so maybe he can do it again. We’ll see. Anderson’s still the best, but we’ll see. I don’t know.”

“It’s definitely going to be the same game plan for him. He’s gonna come out and be aggressive, go for it and try not to give Anderson any space.”

“It’s about the only time I’ve seen Anderson angry. When he fought me, he was nice to me. He was all “hi, how you doing?” He mad. He’s talking bad about Brazil, a mistake. I wouldn’t have done that.”

In his last bout Griffin was knocked out in the first round by Maurício Rua at UFC 134 in Brazil. When asked if he would like to fight in Brazil again his answer was simple “no”.

“No man (laughs). I don’t wanna fight in Brazil, I don’t wanna fight Brazilians in Brazil. Let they come here, do the hard work and travel (laughs).”

After putting to bed rumors of his retirement Griffin was asked how he would defeat the current Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones.

“I believe I’d poison him, make him sick before the fight. I believe that’s how I’d get him (laughs).”

    Yeah fuck tito, where does he get off calling someone a pussy? He beat up on like “streetfighters” and shit like that and he didnt try to call out chuck for his last fight what a pussy! Beat his ass forrest.

  7. Bjj BB says:

    For some reason tito fights well when fighting griffin, the 1st and 2nd was close but we will see, griffin has been out longer then tito so its up in the air for me.

  8. Twein says:

    You guys really really read in to pre-fight banter too seriously. These guys are hounded by reporters and to for them not give them an answer is a disservice to their spotlight and profession. They are making a lot of money and the more interesting they can hype it the more both of them will get paid. I’m not suggesting that they dont believe in what theyre saying, but its just hype and shouldnt be taken too seriously.

  9. Dick Diaz says:

    i hope forrest wins this scrappy trilogy and then concludes his bonnar trilogy as well.

  10. Nolan says:

    Tito is lucky he’s got such a big retarded fanbase.. He’s one 1 fight in the past 6 years. Way past his prime, should’ve been fuckin cut long ago.
