I don't get what you're saying. Do you mean its been a while since Forrest did a interview, or he doesn't respect his fans or, he has no class when he does interviews or all of them?

If its any I've got to disagree with you, Forrest has done a butt load of interviews recently, especially when his book was released a few months back.
If you mean he has no class when it comes to his fans you're dead wrong again! I've met a good few people who have met Forrest and they say he was without doubt the nicest fighter they have ever met. He's given two guys I know t-shirts, also one of their girlfriends got a coffee mug he had in his car which he signed.

They also said he chatted with them for a good half hour before he posed for a picture with them all and left.

He seams like a real nice guy to me and on top of that he's a exciting fighter. What more can you want from the guy?

I don't get the "Forrest owes me an explanation/apology for running out of the ring" attitude. I don't know...I just don't get it.

I think he explained that too....he ran out of the arena because of his high emotions catching up with him and he didn't want that to be filmed.....I wouldn't want my tears on a nationally televised event!

Ask any reporter who's interviewed him and they'll tell you otherwise.

No dude, Forrest has to say all the things I want him to say and act the way I want him to act all the time or he never deserves my money or respect.

If the writer actually believed Forrest when:


Check out the recent clip above of Forrest telling an interviewer that his hair is terrible and calling him racist for assuming Griffin was referring to Alistair Overeem when he referenced Cro Cop giving up during a fight in which he got kneed in the groin repeatedly.


then, I've got a bridge to sell him. I'm thinking he probably scoured the internet for proof of Forrest being a d*ck, to make himself feel better after this:


Just before we began the interview, which I waited to conduct after a one-hour delay in which Griffin signed a few extra autographs, he tossed aside the Cage Potato t-shirt I gave him to a girl working the booth, told me he had no idea what CP was and then proceeded to "X" out the devil horns symbol on my shirt, informing me that I now had his autograph.


I didn't think the interviews were all that bad...so, if those are the worst of the worst, then I don't really see what the big deal is.

I actually like CP a lot, but they tend to stick it to certain people...and I'm sure feeling slighted would only exacerbate that sort of behavior.

Some people just handle the media a lot different than others. He seems to handle it in a very tongue-in-cheek manner, and people need to not take it so seriously. I personally have my doubts about him being a dick. The self-deprecation he's shown throughout his career seems too genuine.

I don't think he was acting like too much of a jerk. He just got done practicing. Give the dude a break.

Just because Forrest doesn't give cookie-cutter PC answers doesn't necessarily make him a dick. The dude seems a little goofy and likes to joke around, that guy shouldn't be so sensitive about his hair IMO.
I try not to have such strong opinions about people I haven't had personal experiences with, but maybe I'm in the minority.

Look if he's on camera, he's just sending a statement saying don't interview him. As opposed to making himself look a big shot he just belittles the interviewer.
I have to say i dont find him a dick I just find it funny haha
