If Forrest Griffin leads the UFC in any stat it just might be "fewest jokes landed." Forrest was up to his old tricks again in a recent pre-fight video interview for his upcoming UFC 155 bout with Phil Davis.
Here's a transcription of one portion of the video via Bleacher Report:
Y'know, the thing about Phil Davis is [that] I really don't want to get beat up by a guy in pink tights..."Mr. Wonderful" is a very unique nickname. I don't know the origin story behind it. Maybe there's a comic book that explains why he's really powerful. I don't know, I don't want to judge him.
Maybe there's nuclear materials that turned his shorts pink. I don't know that. He's probably got superpowers.
Of course, Davis' nickname is a reference to a cat he used to have that was stolen several years ago.
But Forrest makes a very valid point, I mean...he certainly wouldn't want to get embarrassed by a guy who wears pink...
I mean, what kind of fighter would ever wear pink for a fight? Don't guys know that pink is for girls?
(That's Adrien Broner, one of the baddest fighters on the planet)
Moving on from the whole pink thing, Griffin did also give credit to Davis' wrestling and good choke game when talking about the actual fight.
