After watching the post fight presser, I was thinking it was kinda messed up for Forrest to run out, then give an awkward interview after Tito's retirement fight. Kinda took his final goodbye away from him.

Opinions?

I didnt really like it. I thought that Rogan should have interviewed Tito. As far as Forrest running out, that really bugged me, what was that shit all about?? I'm glad Dana went after him.

He figured he lost as his striking was pretty ineffective and he got dropped twice, takedown and beat on a couple of times...etc.

I was a fan of Forrest Griffin before he cried and ran out of the octagon before. Up until then i have disliked his poor loser behaviour. That is not how a professional should act. Unless he was dying...He should stay in the octagon until the final decision is made and someones arm gets raised. I am not a fan of Forrest Griffin

I am a fan of Forrest Griffin, and I didn't like what he did, although I get that he was trying to be funny in the moment. Shit, I've tried that here before and I fell on my face. Tito deserved better than that, and it sucks that he didn't get a Rogan send off. Here's a PG sendoff though:

Tito, you are a legend of the sport, an icon that transcends MMA, and we thank you for all you've given to us, the fans, whether we loved you or hated you, you always came out and gave us a show and we appreciate it. Long live Team Punishment, love them or hate them!

Very strange stuff from Griffin. I don't really have an opinion either way about what he did though. Glad Tito is finally done.

Griffin is often a head case when he loses, or at least thinks he loses. I don't think he means any disrespect when he leaves the octagon prematurely; he simply has a weird way of dealing with disappointment.

I think he's been hit in the head one to many times. He used to be my favorite fighter, after his run on TUF. His fight with Bonnar and Shogun are two of my favorite fights. It seems his personality nowadays is more up and down.

It was clear that Tito wanted a dignified and meaningful exit from the Octagon and I think he deserved that. Unfortunately Forrest took that from him.

It wasn't the place to act up like that and take the spotlight from Tito - he should have had more respect.

He probably wasn't thinking though - he sounded pretty remorseful about it at the post-fight presser.
