Tyson Griffin is Looking for a Fresh Start

With a new camp, Tyson Griffin (15-6) looks for a fresh start with American Kickboxing Academy (AKA).

"I'm enjoying my training again, and I'm mixing up things like I used to before I moved out to Vegas," said Griffin to Bloody Elbow. "I think we'll get to see that fast paced, quick transitioning mixed martial artist I used to be, rather than the defensive striker, take down defender that I became."

Griffin competed for six years with the UFC as a lightweight and featherweight. Over that time he was 8-6. He has won several honors for his performances while in the UFC. He won Fight of the Night five times, Submission of the Night one time and Fight of Year for his 2007 split decision win over Clay Guida (29-13).

In his next fight, Griffin makes his debut for Resurrection Fighting Alliance on November 2. He's expected to take on Efrain Escudero (18-5) in the main event. The card will air on Fight Now TV.

"There's more wrestlers now, and the competition is growing," said Griffin. "I think the evolution of the sport is what's changing the way people fight."
