Forrest Griffin: "I know I’m not the best, but I’m still pretty good" | UFC NEWS

“I think its stylistically a good matchup for me. I honestly, the thing that’s been getting me in trouble are guys that are quicker than me and beating me to the punch with something I don’t see coming. That’s the problem I’ve had recently. [Sonnen] kind of runs around saying, ‘Hey, I want to fight you, I want to fight you, I want to fight you. If something comes up, I’ll fight whoever on Dec. 29. That’s not true, I won’t fight whoever. I’m actually keeping a laundry list of people I want to fight and people I don’t want to fight. I’m not going to divulge who’s on what list… I just love fighting. I know I’m not the best, but I’m still pretty good, there’s a lot of people I can still beat. What do you do. What else am I supposed to do? I have no other skills. I enjoy doing this. There’s nothing I’d really rather do, you know?”

Former UFC light-heavyweight champion, Forrest Griffin, sat down with’s “The MMA Hour” yesterday and discussed his upcoming matchup with Chael Sonnen.

    Humble as always, but don’t sell your self short man. Your one of the hardest working guys in the gym! Train hard, push your self and get that confidence back! Anything can happen in MMA and your still a top fighter, just because you got knock down a few times doesn’t mean you can’t come back if you put the hrs in. I see you right now as a gate keeper to the top of the dev, but a few good wins and you could be right back in there man.

      People like you pi$$ me off with your stupid a$$ comments, you fuc%ing douche bag. So what if he’s not going to be a top 5 LHW again, neither will a bunch of fighters who are still competing. He’s still held the belt and put on some of the best performances ever in the UFC.

    He’s not garbage. None of these guys are. They have accomplished things that you never will. It was you watching them on TV not the other way around….Dick head

    he is garbage!!!! he beat a middleweight rich franklin who needs to retire, he beat a guy called rampage when he was finished he beat shogun who was garbage back then.. and we all seen what shogun done after::). hes been beat by keith jardine, hes beat tito ortiz 2 times lol tito is garbage… he has fought 3 people in there prime silva, evans, shogun. he got destroyed by all of them hes a B fighter.. even if he lost to them 3 fighters i wouldnt be saying hes garbage its the way he lost he got fucked up really bad by all of them it wasnt even 1 bit close…@757 stop trying to be a smart ass u just sound stupid!!!! everyone in the ufc is a good fighter yeah but the point im making is that forest griffin has always been way over rated

      The UFC doesn’t induct “b fighters”; the UFC inducts talented fighters. With a class that’s obviously beyond your comprehension. If you’re going to overly state yourself by declaring Forest Griffen is a push over and has no real accomplishments, which you said. But in a different way. Then you need to re-do you’re homework. Forest is a sell out fighter. He boosts big revenue for fights because he has the mantality to fight anyone. Heart of a lion that man has. Would you willingly put yourself in a cage against Shogun, Rashad and Anderson Silva and fight them? The answer is ‘no’ because your’re more than a keyboard warrior. So , stfu, and take you’re theatricals somewhere else

      OH MY GOSH YOU ARE A DUMB ASS!! He fought and beat who is out there that they put him against. He lost some but was entertaining. Garbage is a bad way to describe fighters ….you are garbage with your asshole comments that have no validity at all….shut up!!!

  5. Ryan prieur says:

    Yeah, he actualy beat shogun when he was AMAZING!!! He just came out of pride where he smashed most of it’s roster! Don’t discredit the guys accomplishments, hrs done very well for him self and MMA in general
