So I was listening to Sirius/XM Fight Club yesterday on my way home from work and the hosts (and a caller as well) both stated that they had "less than memorable" experiences in the past when it came to talking to and/or interviewing Forrest Griffin.

Sadly, this is not the first time I've heard this about Forrest. I really couldn't care less...I'm not much of a fan to begin with...but has anyone here ever had a negative experience with him?

Not personally but I've read that he's generally unplesant to interviewers

Link 1

Stephan Bonnar said in an interview that Forrest doesn't feel the need to put on the charm for interviewers anymore because he's already made it to where he wanted and because they will just turn around and stab him in the back as soon as he loses.

Thats paraphrased but not far off from what Bonnar said.

Haven't been much of a fan since he won the title. Fame went to his head.

Forrest is just a douchey guy in general.
Just read his tweets, all he does is degrade women & make "rape" jokes.
BUT I admit I enjoyed a couple of his fights.. when he fought Spider & when he fought Shogun the 2nd time
hahaha

im not a fan of forrest, but i doubt he's a bad guy.

when your famous for being fan-friendly & likeable, it must be hard to keep that up for interwiews, fans, etc. all the time

Haven't been a fan since he cried after the Jardine fight.

I don't know, Forrest was making tons of jokes about the Penn State child rape case, I lost made respect for him when he was doing that and I muted him.

Eh, he's not too bad. He just doesn't have a filter.

Lots of fighters cry after defeat and a chunk of their livelihoods are diminished. If he roided though he might have won.

I would cry as well if I got knocked out by a jab....maybe Forrest had a HURT shoulder.

I'd cry too if I kept getting submitted and couldn't figure out how to defend it
