Griffin: I don't want to lose to a guy in pink tights

source: ufc.com
 

"The thing about Phil Davis is I really don't wanna get beat up by a guy in pink tights. He's long, he's quick, obviously a great shot, great wrestling, great anaconda choke. I have that to look forward to. What he does is a good job of beating you up from the top, frustrating you, until you come up into him kinda in bad form and that's when he looks for that anaconda."

"Mr. Wonderful" is a very unique nickname. I don't know the origin story behind it. Maybe there's a comic book that explains why he's really powerful. I don't know, I don't want to judge him."

Mr. Wonderful was the name of his cat that ran away when he was in college. So his wrestling teammates started calling him that lol.

I can't believe Forrest gets so much hate here. You would rather listen to generic pre-fight trash talking? I like that he doesn't take it too seriously.

Dang, I just realized how much I dislike Forest since the last Tito fight. LolI'm hoping that he gets worked by Davis.

It actually isn't very unique because Hardonk had it first but I still see what he means

Forrest is funny sometimes.Airball here, for sure...Curious how this fight plays out. Should give us an idea how much career he has left.
