Forrest Griffin and Tito Ortiz will close out their trilogy on July 7th when they meet at UFC 148 and although it_s almost certain that Ortiz will retire win or lose, Griffin says that if he loses to Ortiz again he_ll retire from life.
The winner of the inaugural season of The Ultimate Fighter spoke to UFC.com about his fight with Ortiz and also made the bold statement regarding his life retirement:
“A good wrestler that comes down low, that comes with pressure, he’s a tough guy to fight. He’s still got a good overhand right, good shovel hook, he’s got good punches, good knees, he’s got a good Thai clinch. If you can stop him from coming forward, he’s not so hard to fight. But when he’s coming forward in that good stance, you can’t tell if he’s gonna throw a big bomb or shoot…that’s tough to deal with.
“A lot of people ask me. They say ‘Forrest, it’s Tito’s retirement fight. If you lose to Tito, are you going to retire?’ If I lose to Tito, I’m going to retire from life…seriously.”
