by Chris Palmquist |

Former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin speak to the UG's Jonathan Shrager regarding an array of topics including;

- His appreciation of European culture and relishing his role as a UFC ambassador spreading the MMA gospel abroad.

- His relationship with Dana including some amusing anecdotes.

- Weidman's greatest threat in the Middleweight division.

- The fanfare surrounding Conor McGregor in Dublin.

- Plans to pen a third book.

A plethora of miscellaneous topics are also broached by the inimitable Forrest, namely the difference in quality between US Burger King coffee and UK/Ireland Burger King coffee.

Machida hurt Weidman, Weidman said so himself. Belfort fights similar in some ways as Weidman, both come forward and are aggressive,  this could favor Belfort early as he has a big speed advantage. If Weidman was smart he would take Belfort down for first few rounds to gas him out. Can't wait for this fight

I don't agree with him. He's been wrong about too many things already.

I think it just depends. Vitor is way more dangerous than machida, for the first 10-15 minutes of the fight. Machida is more dangerous later on, as he showed in the Weidman fight.
