Video: Forrest Griffin Open to Tito Ortiz Rubbermatch; Says He Only Has a Few Fights Left in Him

(Video courtesy of UStream/MMAFightCornerRadio)

Forrest Griffin was on MMA Fight Corner Radio this weekend and when asked whether or not he would entertain a third fight with Tito Ortiz, the former UFC light heavyweight champ didn’t hesitate in answering.

“If people would pay to see that fight, I’ll get paid to fight that fight,” Griffin said. “I care more about where the fight is; I don’t travel well. If that fight [with Tito] happens in the continental United States, I’m down.”

The TUF 1 winner, who suffered a knockout loss to Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in his last bout in August at UFC 134 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, also laid out his career plans moving forward and revealed that he doesn’t plan on following in the footsteps of his mentor, Randy Couture.

“If anything, for me now, I’m realizing that I don’t have much left. This is the end of the road for me. I want a couple of more fight fights, you know, good ones. Fights were I don’t get knocked out in the first round,” he said with a chuckle. “Fights were I get hurt and bleed a little but I kinda rally back. Something of that nature. As far as a fight with Tito, yeah it would be good but do people want to see it.”

Anderson Silva is a real life, walking soul reaper. And he does it all in a pink golf shirt.

i am sure Jon Jones being champion kind of put his title hopes to bed. That being said, Jon has chicken legs and Forrest tosses a mean leg kick. Maybe he is the only guy hat can beat him. Holy shit!!! give him a title shot.

It seems like Griffin's heart is no longer in fighting. He pretty much said so in an interview a while back, that he feels he's peaked, no longer looks at championship as a realistic goal. So.. I can understand if he continues fighting to earn a living, but it's not really interesting to watch a fight who's sort of lost his love of the sport.

you can't hate on the guy for not wanting to get punched in the head anymore. He just had a kid. His priorities are changing. I don't think extra brain damage is going to help him be a better father. If he doesn't need the money let him retire.

Was Fo Griff ever really that good? I mean, if you look at his stats on the UFC page I think one of the biggest attributes the give him is "heart." When you say a fighter has heart that means he sucks but he can't be put away...or something. Or that means he tried really hard on TUF, or that the fans like him even though he sucks. Heart doesn't mean first round KOs.
Anyway, if I had as much money and endorsements as Forrest I would quit fighting too. I would have probably just quit after that Silva fight, too.

the only thing i am sure of is that after forrest retires he is going to become seriously fat. just like rampage and possibly anthony johnson. ref buster douglas and james toney

I was pretty lukewarm about Forrest for a while, until I read his book, which is fucking hilarious....definitely seems like he's done with any meaningful fights, he's too satisfied with his accomplishments and has earned enough money to not give a fuck

Wow, that radio show was really good. Never heard it before. If Forrest wants someone who can't punch a whole in his face, a trilogy with Bonnar makes more sense than a trilogy with Tito. Bonnar is coming back up the ladder, Forrest is coming down. Easy fight to hype and at least there is some relevance in the light heavyweight ranks. Bonnar will either be put back in his place, or place himself in the mix for the first time.

So Forrest wants to fight B and C-grade fighters just so he doesn't get knocked out in the first round? Please, spare us the misery, Forrest. The fight with Tito is the only fight that makes sense for the both Forrest and Tito. Make it the co-main event of a card and then retire their asses. Sure, i'd pay money to see that one last time for ol' time's sake.

Kimbo says 'I realize he is a legend of the sport etc… He hold some records, like longest time ducking a fight' Hahahaha well put, Fuck Tito, if he has to fight one more time I say have a reamtch with Vlady and let The Janitor take out the trash, I don't want to see him and Forrest again, twice was more than enough.
fatbellyfrank- December 14, 2011 at 9:22 pm
If the wells run dry Forrest, time to walk away
XENOPHON- December 14, 2011 at 9:20 pm
no one wants to see tito in another fight...ufc should just cancel the option for his last fight...
one alternative, let him fight Bader again?
jfjjfjff- December 14, 2011 at 9:00 pm
both in and out of the ring: i want to like forrest, but i just don't.
Kimbo Lesnar- December 14, 2011 at 7:26 pm
I'd be okay with another Forrest Griffin fight if he comes in to win, which it does not sound like he is, but ANOTHER Tito fight? Please God, spare us! His record spanning the last 5 years is one win in his last EIGHT?!
I realize he is a legend of the sport etc... He hold some records, like longest time ducking a fight, and some such, but you don't keep fighters fighting just because they are legends. You don't see Dan Severn in the Octagon anymore do you?

Sounds like hypergonadism to me. He should talk to Chael or Hendo.
