MMA Video: Forrest Griffin Talks About UFC 148, Tito Ortiz

| by

“If you can stop him from coming forward, he’s not so tough.” Forrest Griffin makes some bold predictions for his rubber match with Tito Ortiz at UFC® 148.

“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.” - transcribed by
