Griffin will face Tito Ortiz for the third time at UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II on July 7, 2012 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Here is what Griffin had to say about facing Ortiz for the third and final time.

“I was fighting for $300-400 when Tito was champion of the world. He’s not what he used to be, but he’s still putting on good fights with the best in the world. The Machidas, the Rashads. The guys that he’s fighting are the top ten, cream of the crop.

We’re 1-1, we’ve had good fights. There’s going to be some things that are tough to deal with. A good wrestler that comes down low, that comes with pressure, he’s a tough guy to fight. He’s still got a good overhand right, good shovel hook, he’s got good punches, good knees, he’s got a good Thai clinch. If you can stop him from coming forward, he’s not so hard to fight. But when he’s coming forward in that good stance, you can’t tell if he’s gonna throw a big bomb or shoot…that’s tough to deal with.

A lot of people ask me. They say ‘Forrest, it’s Tito’s retirement fight. If you lose to Tito, are you going to retire?’ If I lose to Tito, I’m going to retire from life. …seriously.”

  2. B-rad says:

    It will be a good fight id like to see tito when his last fight but i think forrest will take it. I dont think tito can dump forrest on his back and drop elbows the whole round like he did in the first fight.. forest by unamious decision

  6. Clay says:

    At first I had Forrest winning. But Tito did beat bader, and has potential still. This is going to be a good one

  7. WrestlingRules says:

    Suicide is a serious matter, folks! It’s no laughing matter! You guys better grow up because Forrest is wacky like that and he could hurt hisself. It’s not funny.

  8. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
