Why Isn’t TMZ Reporting on This? Forrest Griffin to Donate Entire Proceeds of New Book Sales to Various Charities


Forrest Griffin on Fox and Friends – Watch more Funny Videos
(Video courtesy Fox)

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin appeared on Fox and Friends this morning to discuss his second book, Be Ready When the Sh*t Goes Down: A Survival Guide to the Apocalypse. 

Although the release of the book isn’t necessarily a newsworthy event, what is worth noting is that Griffin will be donating the entire proceeds of the sale of the book to a number of charities, including one that has been set up for the young son of his dear late friend John Grantham, who was referred to throughout his first book "Got Fight" as "Big John."


Here’s the lowdown courtesy of theultimatefighter.com:

"Even if they get nothing out of [the book], I hold myself free from harm, because I donated every penny that I make from this book to charity. I didn’t keep any money from the book at all to help you survive the apocalypse. That’s how much I care about you the reader.
There’s a couple of different [charities the money will go to]: Fisher House, Three Square, a food bank in Las Vegas, our church, and then a couple more personal ones. The guy Big John, in the book, he passed away, and he’s got a five-year-old son, and he’s got a trust set up, so some of it’s for that as well. I kept no money from the book. It didn’t go to charities like the ‘Forrest Griffin Needs a New Car Foundation.’”

Having been on the receiving end of Forrest’s bizarre and dry wit, I was surprised he didn’t call the female interviewer in the video out for referring to him as "the UFC lightweight champion."

Holy shit. Imagine how big the UFC's Heavyweights would be if Forrest was actually considered a Lightweight!

"UFC lightweight champion"? Lawdamercy.

Yes, but she doesn't have a faux-hawk now does she?

;P

Well, sold. I'll buy it.

This actually explains a lot. I vaguely thought he was talking about Big John McCarthy in his first book, including an anecdote where 'Big John' climbs down a fire escape naked. Shudder.

What's the cost of the book? Instead of buying I think I'll just cut a check for the amount of said book and give to the charity of my choice.

HAHA! In your face Forest "the crybaby-who-runs away-after-getting-dominated-in-fights-he-thought-he-probably-stood-a-chance-in" Griffin! How do you feel about your stupid plan now!?!

Since when has there been a correlation between "newsworthy event" and Fox and Friends?

I think Forrest would wreck the lightweight division. He should look into that.

That dude was really into coming up on Forrest from behind and giving him a naked choke from behind, awesome.
