Forrest Griffin's days as a light heavyweight contender are over. The UFC is generously giving Forrest fights that he can ease his way back into the spot light because the average fight fan recognizes his name. I admit he has shown better striking capabilities ever since his fight with Hector Ramirez, but it's just isn't enough. People will contend that the Rich Franklin fight should his technical and strategic abilities which make him a force to be reckon with. Griffin was fighting with a weight advantage in their bout and used his size to smoother his opponent.
But if he were to have a rematch with an opponent that displays brilliance in Anderson Silva, he would be massacred once again. Griffin's lack of skill, technical hand ability, lack of quickness make him a walk through. People are over hyping his capabilities than he deserves. SO what if he won a championship to rampage, he lost it in the next bout to a smarter opponent. Forrest seems to lose his wits and opponents take advantage of that. And after his loses, he prances out of the stage instead of congratulating the winner. Forrest's overrated toughness to adversity is a joke. next time tough it out when you have to face an opponent when he has clearly beaten you.
Hopefully his hype will die out and this "Ultimate Fighter" has been fades away
