Griffin glad to not be fighting 'boring' Sonnen

source: mmamania.com
 

During a segment on FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight," on air correspondent Ariel Helwani talked about a conversation he had with Griffin, directly after he received the news of his cancelled bout with Sonnen.

"Forrest doesn't know. I actually just spoke to him, moments ago. He said he just found out about the news, as well. He doesn't know if he'll still fight on the UFC 155 card at the end of the year, but he did have a couple interesting things to say Chael. He said, 'I don't blame Chael for taking this fight. Why work your way to the top, if you can talk your way to the top?' And he did say, somewhat jokingly, 'I'm actually glad that I'm not fighting him now, because watching his fights was so boring and tedious.'"

Call it "sour grapes," but Griffin is saying what a lot of other fans and pundits are thinking. Some have even come out voicing their opinion that the UFC's handling of the situation has set a bad precedent for the future.

Forrest is such a delusional jerk. He's the last guy that should be complaining about being boring. He lay and prayed Rich Franklin cuz he couldn't actually outfight him. He pointfighted his way to BS decisions he didn't deserve against Rampage and Tito with his weak taps that don't even do damage. Chael is definitely more entertaining in the cage. Forrest hasn't been in an entertaining fight in years.

This coming from the guy who made us watch him lay on top of another 185'er... Rich Franklin.

Chael dodged a bullet he would have got choked out again.  instead he gets a big main event payday to eat some hellbows and get finished in Rd 1.

I agree with you there.  Nothing really left for either guy, one more go round.

Griffin should fight Bonnar one last time, then both should retire.Sonnen fight would have been pointless anyhow.
