Forrest Griffin is cranky

I dunno if you wanna read into it or not, but Asshole Forrest is out and about as UFC 86 nears:

Forrest Griffin is one the most well-liked fighters in UFC history. He’s a great guy with the media 98% of the time, but there’s the 2% when you may get him at a moment that he has little patience for the cliche question. The challenger for Quinton Jackson’s UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 86, had a few moments of levity but was mostly serious during his initial fight week meeting with the media.

Brad Young from fired off the first question but was greeted by the same Forrest who put his foot through a door during the The Ultimate Fighter 7. Young asked, “What was more important the loss to Tito or the win over Shogun?”

Griffin responded, “That’s a f**kin stupid question.”

He’s clearly grown tired of the increased media responsibility that comes with fighting in a main event for a UFC title: “I’ll keep those thoughts to myself, it’s better for all of us.”

    sounds like Forrest all right.

  • Reverend Clint

    Well that is a fucking stupid question

  • Steve

    I agree with Forrest. It was a fucking stupid question.

    He should have leg kicked the guy and broke his femur for good measure.

  • Lifer

    im all for firebombing that reporters house.. maybe a nail bomb for good measure.

    I am going to make a video that titles, “Leave Forrest alone” and I am going to look like the kid that makes those “Leave Brittany alone” videos

  • Lifer

    lets string him up by his genitals!

  • Lifer

    #1 jackal – that’d be good. i don’t know what you guys are talking about with regards to it being a poor question – it’s basically asking him ‘did you get more motivation/lessons learned from your loss or from your win?’

    that’s a fair question to ask any fighter.

  • Lifer

    of course in forrest’s mind he probably won that tito fight. i scored it for tito as well when i saw it. if it had gone 5 rounds tho it definitely would have went to forrest.

  • Lifer

    can you tell im bored at work yet?

    “Forrest Griffin is one the most well-liked fighters in UFC history”


    Is he?
    no kidding????

  • MrNiceGuyMMA

    He was funny as usual. He seemed chill to me.

  • fightlinker

    A lot of reporters are just trying to coax different answers out of fighters. Even though an answer might be obvious, reporters expect a guy to expand on his ideas and stuff. So yeah, there are obviously dumb questions to ask a fighter, but I ‘get’ what this dude was trying to ask.

  • Márcio

    forest is just crancky because his going to get the ass whopin of a lifetime. i would be pissed as well.

  • Five.Bolt.Main

    I concur with clint.

  • jakey

    What’s that “UFC’s most loved Fighter” crap all about?

    People come to see fights because they love the violence – not the fighters

  • Jester

    Griffin is pissed as he knows he will soon be sucking canvas face first.. Dropped like a wet turd before end of 2nd round.
