    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Forest Griffin (sorta) speaks about UFC 101

    YouTube - Forrest Griffin post UFC 101 - MMA:30 EXCLUSIVE!

    A bit of self-deprecating humor here and there, but it seemed pretty obvious he means it when he says "I'm tired of talking to people." He's definitely a clever guy to joke around with though, can't wait to read his book.

    It probably doesn't help that he's so damn likeable.

    WOW....thats not the Forrest Im used to seeing. Wonder if hes still messed up in the head due to the fight...or he just wants to change his personality with the media.

    Either way, his old attitude/personality was definitely more likable. When your a pro you have to talk to people, we all have parts of our job we hate.I think he needs to suck it up.The whole "im happy to be here" rolling his eyes...when we just want to know whats up with him is kinda stupid.

    Forrest really believed that he was going to beat anderson, and i'm sure he still believes it's a winnable fight for him.

    He's being kind of a dick, but his point about people thinking he's a role model for children, etc. IS kind of valid. He's a UFC fighter. I know he chose it, it's part of the sport, etc. but I sure as hell wouldn't want it.

    Fame sucks.

    Considering that it was only six weeks ago that he suffered his most brutal knockout loss, I'd probably go with yeah.....his still messed up from the fight.....

    Considering that Forrest was expected to use his size and strength to neutralize Anderson but he instead got his ass handed to him, I would think he would be still kinda fucked up.

    He really doesn't take loss well. I hope he's actually looking at the fight to improve, not just stewing in his disappointment, and that he gets over his assholery.
