Give credit to Dave Farra, he is not going to let Forrest Griffin completely avoid talking about the ass-whipping he received from Anderson Silva or the reaction to said ass-whipping (running out of the arena), even though that seems to be what Griffin would like most. Instead, Farra not only confronts him about it, but does so by making a joke that has at least a 50/50 chance of eliciting a very negative reaction from the emotional Griffin. Kudos, man.
But on to Griffin. Anybody else not buying the explanation that he sprinted out of the view of the cameras because he thinks talking is stupid? Griffin’s on-camera persona has had a little something to do with his fan-favorite status in the UFC. I mean, he has a book out. Clearly this is a man who has benefitted from talking. His general response to this crushing defeat seems to be to act like it’s no big deal. As a coping mechanism, that might work for a little while. Sooner or later though, that proves to be a hollow comfort and the only thing left to do is to lash out violently. Lucky for Farra that Griffin hasn’t yet reached that point and is still willing to tolerate his jokes.
Speaking of Farra, the poor man’s Dave Coulier actually had a fight in Las Vegas this weekend, and it turns out he’s not as horrible on his feet as he is on the ground. He’s still not, you know, good, but at least he was able to beat up his radio co-host. Check out the video after the jump.Read More DIGG THIS
