UFC NEWS – Realizing He Is Near The End Of His Own Career, Forrest Griffin Welcomes Sending Off Ortiz In A Rubber Match
“If people will pay to see that fight [against Tito Ortiz] then I’ll get paid to fight that fight. For me, now I’m realizing that I don’t have much left. This is the end of the road me. I want a couple more fight fights. Good ones. Fights where I don’t get knocked out in the first round. Fights where I like get hurt, bleed a little, but I kind of like rally. Something of that nature.”
In a recent interview with The MMA Fight Corner the former UFC light-heavyweight champion talks about his career and what he wants for the future.
Tito Ortiz is a man who Griffin has faced in the Octagon on two occasions. While he may have lost the first bout, he was able to grind out a decision against Ortiz in their rematch to settle the score.
With Ortiz proclaiming retirement after one more fight he has specifically asked for a shot at redemption in a rubber match with Griffin before he retires from active competition. The two former champions seems to agree that they are both at the end of their rope as fighters and a fight to settle the score once and for all also seems like a matchup made in heaven for the aging competitors.
