PRO MMA NOW: Any idea why you think that Lashley thinks that whole situation was ‘garbage?'
CHAD GRIGGS: (Laughs) Well I mean no one likes to lose. I think that Bobby is a great athlete. I think that he has huge potential and he is a big draw. I have tried after the fight to go up to him and thank him and he wouldn't look at me. He just blew me off and I've made a couple of attempts to be a good sport and try to I guess be cordial with him and yeah. He's made a lot of excuses and talked and said I'm crap. I don't know, what does that make him? (Laughs) I'm not much of a trash talker but I've got to say it does offend me a little bit that he has been such a poor sport. As for being excited after the win, absolutely. I think people had me at one time favored 8-1. People didn't know who I was and I was excited you know. It was a big fight. It was a big fight for him obviously. It cost him a lot of money to lose and really dropped him down. I'm sure he didn't like to see me celebrating but watch his fights. Watch when he wins against I think it was Bob Sapp or something, [he was] running around and jumping up on the cage and sitting on the cage throwing his arms around. What is that then? Sometimes I feel like he's a hypocrite. He's being hypocritical at times. I don't want to call names but I'm just calling it the way it is. I think he has done the same thing after fights. I'm trying to be a good sport about it. I absolutely think that he's got potential and is a great athlete but all the excuses beforehand... He was saying he was 100 percent. He was saying he was going to smash me. For someone with severe sickness and dehydration, that first seven or eight minutes he was pretty explosive, pretty strong and pretty energetic. It's just he spent his energy in the wrong way and his conditioning wasn't up to par. He can say whatever he wants. Obviously he's got to try and come up with something to create the reason of why he lost and to build himself back up. Everybody has got to sell themselves.
