Strikeforce: Houston Preview - Chad Griggs Plans to Wear Out Bobby Lashley

Lashley_vs_griggs_medium"I think I have a lot more experience when it comes in to the fight. I think his name is bigger, but when it comes down to it, I don't know if he's been hit in the face. He's wrestled people down and beats them up, so I don't really know if he's tasted fighting yet. That's our goal is to get in there and let him realize this is a fight and I'm here to win, too."

"Our thought going into this one is he's a four-time national champion wrestler. He's bigger, stronger, an explosive guy. Our goal here is to just get back up. We worked on some takedown defense and some stuff that we think is going to have to make him work harder to get those takedowns. Ultimately, I think we're going to end up getting taken down a couple of times and so we spent a lot of time on my back just finding those holes and getting back up on my feet. Make him burn that energy and blow that energy getting me down and then hopefully get right back up and have him spent that energy for nothing."

"He's carrying a lot of muscle and it's going to take a lot of oxygen to keep that muscle alive, so I think the farther we get into the fight the more it's going to be my fight."
