Cagewriter told you about Forrest Griffin's apology to Anderson Silva just after his win over Tito Ortiz. After getting knockout by Silva back at UFC 101, Griffin sprinted from the cage. On Saturday night, he told Silva he meant no disrespect (7:53 mark). It's more proof of the sportsmanship often exhibited but rarely covered in mixed martial arts. Even Phil Baroni is seen clowning on himself for taking a beating (5:09 mark).

sorry if this is already posted. I looked for it first.

Like I said from the beginning when this whole incident happened- Forrest is just a fierce competitor and he was incredibly disappointed with himself. It's not the coolest thing in the world to do, but I always understood the thought behind running like that.

Glad to see him make good. Hopefully the fans will give him a break now
