“I’ve never felt like that for a fight,” Grispi said of his loss at Saturday’s UFC 125. “I didn’t feel like myself even going out. I was trying to get ready for the fight and I just couldn’t get into the mode to fight. I don’t know. I was trying to the whole time. I couldn’t think of what to do. I don’t know. I just froze up, I guess. I don’t know. It’s the first time I’ve ever felt like that.”

“I knew he was tough, he’s a brawler, he’s a tough kid – I just didn’t give him a fight, I didn’t really fight my fight. I didn’t really fight back. I was just in my own head. I just couldn’t think.”

“I can’t look at it anymore. I’ve just got to keep trucking, keep moving on and getting another fight in there right away. I want to smash someone. I’m pretty pissed at myself.”

“I learned obviously I can take a bunch of shots to the face and I know my heart. I always know I can go three rounds even if I’m getting beat up, the whole fight is going the wrong way — I can still stay in there and still try to win. It’s the worst night I’ve ever had and I still didn’t get finished. Even though it was a horrible performance on my part, I definitely learned from it.”

 It happens. People have "off nights". He's still a damn good fighter.

 UFC jitters probably, but he is really good and fun to watch.

Lucky for him that off night didnt happen vs Aldo (not saying it still wont).

If it had he'd still be drinking out of a straw in the ICU!

I'm rooting for Josh, I agree with him also, it was probably good to get beat up like that to see what he can take. Hopefully Dana doesn't have too short of a leash on him, thank God he's not black or he'd probably be out of there

if you cant take your opponent down and you have inferior standup, you are likely to be in trouble...

My coach has a saying, "You can't shine all the time".  Hopefully you don't have one of those days on fight night.  It happens.

Yes, so many of Aldo's opponents are dead or in the ICU.

Always been a Grispi fan.  I remember reading about his local fights on massmma.net when he was just coming up.  Hope he comes back with a vengeance!

 Great attitude after a brutal beat down.  Maybe he overtrained, or like he said just wasn't there mentally.  Sounds like he's got the right outlook to come back tho

Maybe he under-trained and under-estimated.

You could tell as soon as he was in the cage and before the start of the fight that something was off. He didnt have the fire in his eyes.  He didnt look right physically either, like the weight cut was hard on him. I'm just speculating......
