As we all know, inspirational icon Tito Ortiz plans to call it a career after his next fight, or so he has claimed. He has also stated a desire for his final fight to take place on 4th of July weekend, and against either Forrest Griffin or Chuck Liddell. Talk about specific. And while Liddell can’t compete for obvious reasons (specifically, Jackrack commercials), Griffin has already come out in favor of a rubbermatch, and it seems the trilogy’s completion is all but inevitable at this point. On a recent episode of “Inside MMA,” Griffin received a surprise, but pre-recorded (for even more obvious reasons) video call-out from “The People’s Champ,” who all but begged Griffin for another rematch, as if FoGriff was somehow in charge of making those kinds of decisions:
Forrest, you know I deserve it, man. Step up. Let’s do this. It’s an awesome fight for you. I lost my last one. You lost your last one. Let’s do this — unless you’re scared!
Well, not to get technical Tito, but you’ve actually lost your last two, and six of your last eight. Anyway, join us after the jump for Forrest’s response.
(Skip to :30 to see….wait, what is Laura Prepon doing there?)
Other highlights from FoGriff include:
On making the Ortiz fight happen: “Do you wanna know how fights get done now? If enough people get on Twitter, it’ll happen.” [As sad as it is true.]
On his Inside MMA stats: “Now, I’m looking at your ranking, let’s be honest. Speed…I’m a slow son of a bitch. I am so slow.”
On fears: “I’m scared of a lot of things. But, you know, no offense, [Tito's] not one of them.”
So, is anyone as stoked for this one as Donna Pinciotti, or stoked at all for that matter?
