Forrest Griffin: Too many regrets to put into words


As 2013 comes to a close, The Las Vegas Sun asked 13 Nevada personalities 13 questions, they had to answer in 13 words or less. The magnificent 13 included UFC Hall of Famer Forrest Griffin. Rebecca Clifford-Cruz asked the questions, excerpted below.

Rebecca Clifford-Cruz: What person, living or dead, do you admire most?

Forrest Griffin: Ghandi, or Inigo Montoya.

RCC: What is the quality you like best about a person?

FG: Come on, Ghandi, do you really need a reason?

RCC: What is your most recognizable characteristic?

FG: My satellite dish-like ears.

RCC: What makes you happy?

FG: Coffee and sex but never at the same time.

RCC: What is your most embarrassing moment as a prominent figure?

FG: During a fight with Anderson Silva, I slipped on an imaginary banana peel.

RCC: Any regrets this past year?

FG: So many I cannot put into words. Thanks for bringing it up.

Friend of mine sneezed a huge gunky boogerload all over Forrest's brand new Scion at a Grappler's Quest weigh-in shortly after he won TUF. Forrest was getting out of it and saw the whole thing. He was way too disgusted to say anything and went in for his open workout. Win or lose, always been a fan! haha

I always thought he was fun to watch. He may never have had the hardest punches but he was usually good for a good scrap.

Always loved this guy. He had his flaws but what a cool dude overall. His books are fucking hilarious too.

He had the chance to go to war with Franklin, instead of using his 245 lb. "LHW" frame to smother him and give noogies.You know what maybe they should let Rich knock Forrest out for his last fight? Put a special "no lay and pray" clause in there.

I have similar thoughts on Forrest. Was always a fan but the way he went out was weird and awkward. Not getting KO'd left and right like Chuck but almost seemingly mentally breaking down getting strange, pouty and morose in his interviews when he had them. .

One of my favorite fighters of all time, shame he went out like he did, running out of the cage and stuff like that
