Because he’s way too chickenshit to accept the fight.
Forrest or Shogun? I’m assuming you’re talking about Forrest.
If the money line goes above +250 for Griffin, I am putting $100 down on him. I have seen every Shogun fight twice. It is more than possible that Griffin beats him.
Man…talk about in depth reporting here guys…
I was gonna write more but got distracted by candy. Expect part 2 today
Candy? or “Candy”? I’m with DJ here, I’m gonna bet on Forrest of the line gets that high.
I will bet either one of you $100 that Forrest doesn’t last one round with Shogun, but I also think it won’t happen. I feel like the UFC management is not exactly pumped for the influx up Pride guys who might start destroying the Forrest Griffins of the UFC.
If both of them hadn’t gotten beat in the 2nd round of the IFC Global Domination tournament they would have fought already. Forrest wouldn’t have ducked Rua then and I don’t see him ducking Rua now. I don’t think Forrest would try to stand and bang with Rua, though.
Dana White has been stating for weeks that Shogun is fighting Machida, so unless Machida is injured or something I don’t see them changing plans.
shogun is going to RIP through that weight division like butter. its going to be ridiculous. it’s already a pretty thin division anyway. he dismantled rampage in pride. wait n see
Well…it looks like Forrest will be fighting Shogun at UFC 76 on September 22. Forrest will fight anybody and I read somewhere that he requested this fight…he’s no chickenshit.
Shogun is definitely a heavy favorite, but I think Griffin will put up a good fight. It’s pretty much a win/win for Forrest. If he manages to pull off the upset, he’ll earn huge respect and move up in the rankings. Even if he just has a good showing, he should earn respect…there’s no shame in losing to a fighter of Shogun’s caliber.
Forrest has balls…I’ll be pulling for him.
I think the fight wont happen cause Shogun is chickenshit of Forrest… hahaha but then again CroCop got whooped by Gonzaga… and Nog almost got knocked out…
think about it…..
