The Underground News
 

Following a devastating knockout loss to UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva at UFC 101 on Saturday night, former 205-pound champion Forrest Griffin wasted no time getting up from the mat and quickly exiting the Octagon.

At the post fight press conference, UFC President Dana White said he hadn't seen or heard from Griffin after the fight and he could be "back in Georgia" at that point.

“He’s an emotional guy,” commented White. “He came into this fight confident that he was going to beat Anderson Silva.”

Reports surfaced on Sunday that Griffin had suffered a jaw injury and that was the reason for his hasty exit, but MMAWeekly.com was able to confirm with representatives from Zinkin Entertainment, Griffin's management group, that he is physically fine following the Saturday night fight.

Griffin suffered no broken jaw and he is physically okay, said the Zinkin representative, but emotionally he is definitely not dealing well with the loss.

 "After two knockdowns early in the round, Griffin was caught with a quick straight right hand that put him down on the canvas for the final time as he waived to the referee to stop the fight."

I guess they only do spell check on that site.

Forrest did a good job at work, to bad he threw himself into an emotional fall like that. I hate to see the good guys go down. Especially when they throw themselves into training like he does.

lol @ anyone calling that a work. It was an unseen, accurate, technically-sound shot that had Forrest's body weight working against him.

Forrest seems like a guy with a lot of heart that struggles with losses. He trains hard so give him a break. Simply put, he might handle disappointment different that others but he is an awesome MMA fighter and representative of this sport.

I am not a fighter and I do not know the man. From interviews I've read, he seems like a great guy. I saw the fight and felt bad for him.

When I see behavior I deem questionable, I usually defer to personal experience. In this case, I thought, "what if one of my kids (13, 18, 20) did something similar to running out of the arena, at one of their athletic competitions?"

I would be very disappointed and embarrassed for him/her, and I'd tell him/her to get back to the cage and apologize. My wife would probably be right there with me.

Again, I'm sure he's a great guy; however, we're sugar-coating disrespectful behavior.

 If that animal fought Forrest, I'd take that animal by TKO round 2.

 That animal hypnotizes Forrest with head movement then knocks him out with a left hook.
