We couldn’t tell you how Forrest Griffin‘s physical preparation is coming along for his fight against Anderson Silva at UFC 101 (August 8th, Philadelphia) — but at least his head’s in the right place. Here are some highlights from a recent interview he did with RawVegas.tv:
On the Silva fight: "People keep telling me that I’m a big guy and they think I’ll do pretty well. I don’t believe ‘em, I think they’re out of their minds…I’m planning on getting beat up by Anderson Silva…Yeah, he’ll probably beat me up. But I could still win the fight. Even fights I win I get beat up in. That’s just how I roll."
On his book, Got Fight?: "It’s just an insane sense of flattery that people would not only read your random thoughts, but maybe even pay money to read nonsense that you have to say…It’s a very short book. It’s not gonna take you a whole lot of time to get through, so I think you can pick it up and pretty much read the whole thing [at the bookstore] in two or three cups of coffee…and maybe a little piece of brownie or something, and you don’t have to buy the book. But if you would, try not to get brownie on the book because somebody may actually buy it for some misguided reason."
On Lyoto Machida: "I want nothin’ to do with that guy. Keep him away from me."
On Lyoto Machida’s urine: "I would drink Machida’s urine. It’s done wonders for him. My urine is gross, it’s full of toxins and crap, but I think Machida eats pretty healthy. I’d drink his urine. Not from the source itself…"
On his gameplan for the Spider: "I’ve got my camp putting visine in his water…he’s gonna be shitting himself the entire fight."
On staying positive: "Herpes isn’t just a disease, it’s a way of life."
