Forrest Griffin on losing to Anderson Silva and possibly fighting Jon Jones:
Forrest - "I hope I'm not fighting Jon "Bones" Jones. I might be. Fuck it; if I am, I am. I'll do it, but I'm not even training right now. That's a bad dude. That dude wil' whup my ass. Fuck it. What's the worst...I mean, it couldn't be worse than Anderson Silva. It shouldn't be worse than that, right? Every fight I go into, no matter what happens, it couldn't be worse than Anderson Silva," Griffin pointed out. "'Cos that shit was a year ago and literally every day people ask me something about that. 'What happened...What happened?' You want to know what happened? It's on page 23 [of my new book] if you need to know. Check it out."
Ellis - "He punched you in the chin."
Forrest - "Repeatedly. And I was very confused. I tried to punch him and he literally moved his head out of the way and looked at me like I was stupid for doing it. He looked at me like, 'Why would you do such a stupid thing?' He looked at me like, 'Oh, did you really think you were going to hit me? What a stupid thing to think you slow, slow white boy,' and then he punched me. I felt embarrassed for even trying to punch him. I felt like some kid trying to wrestle with his dad."
