Quote of the Day: Forrest Griffin Talks Anderson Silva, Your Mom

Let's look back at your last fight against Silva at UFC 101. Ultimately, what do you think went wrong out there?
I don't know. I'm going to guess everything. You know where I made my biggest mistake was saying I would fight that guy. That's definitely the first mistake I made and the biggest.

Was he better than you thought he would be?
I'm not really sure, man. I'm not really sure I showed up to fight him. Maybe I thought he was so good that I didn't have to fight him.

Forrest Griffin to Ariel Helwani.

His exceptionally charming and witty reply to questions about running out of the ring after that fight is in the full entry.

Did it bother you to hear people criticize your post-fight reaction?
Nah, that's the first time I've ever heard it. This is going to blow you away, but I haven't watched the fight or talked about it.

This guy actually asked me a good question the other day, and this is a real story and I really like it: first off, he was very confrontational; I didn't like him much to begin with, and he goes, 'Hey, man, I have to know,' because it's his business to know, 'why did you run out of the cage that night after the Silva fight.' And I said, 'Look, man, I haven't told anybody, let's keep this on the down low, but the truth is your mom was waiting for me in the back to suck my d***, and you know how good of a b*** j** your mom gives, so I didn't want to be late for that sh**.' And that's pretty much the answer I give. I like that answer, so I'll give that answer to everyone.
