UFC Light Heavyweight Forrest Griffin spoke to MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani after the bout and attempted to explain his behavior post-fight after beating Tito Ortiz at UFC 148. According to Griffin, who fled the ring before the decision was announced, UFC president Dana White told him to get "the eff back in the cage" to hear the judge's decision.
The UFC tweeted this quote from Dana about the incident:
Dana on what he said to Forrest: "He drives me crazy, this guy. It's like professional suicide. Everyone knows what I said to him"— UFC (@ufc) July 8, 2012
Afterwards the official UFC twitter account said that Forrest also apologized for stealing the mic from Joe Rogan and interviewing Ortiz:
Forrest: "I feel really bad that I took Tito's mic from Joe, I apologize for that, I was in a weird mindset"— UFC (@ufc) July 8, 2012
Griffin has fled the cage in the past including after his notorious UFC 101 loss to Anderson Silva. He also cried in the cage after losing to Keith Jardine in 2006.
