LAS VEGAS — Forrest Griffin and Tito Ortiz finished their trilogy of fights on Saturday night at UFC 148, Griffin coming out on top two fights to one. Not only was it the end of their trilogy, the fight also marked then end of Ortiz’s career.

Interrupting Ortiz’s moment with UFC broadcaster Joe Rogan after the fight, Griffin was apologetic at the UFC 148 post-fight press conference, disappointed not only in his fight performance, but also his post-fight actions.

Check out Forrest Griffin’s UFC 148 post-fight press conference remarks and apology to Tito… Link

Griffin should honestly just leave after every fight. When he wins, he opens his mouth and makes himself and the sport look bad. When he losses, he does the same thing but with more tears.

What he did to Ortiz is really inexcusable because he can never get that moment back. It was his time for Rogan to give him a great send-off like he's done for Couture and was willing to do for Hughes and Le. Instead we got to hear Griffin make a joke segment out of Ortiz last fight.

I'm hoping when it's time for Griffin to call it quits, someone runs in and hits him in the face with a fucking pie.

It was a really stupid and douchey thing to do imo. I don't like Tito in the slightest and I'm glad he's retiring but he deserved a proper send off and was robbed of one by an overgrown child...

I wish when Forrest walked out, he just kept going for good!!

Rogan should have slapped on a RNC when he grabbed the mic from him, show off his Black Belt skills.

He's losing his mind. I have a feeling Forest's story may end sadly.

It is amazing to me that Forrest Griffin was once the UFC LHW champ and a fan favorite.

I would not be able to forgive forrest if I were Tito



That was his last moment. Last.
Can't do it over. Forrest ruined it. When Tito looks back and thinks of his last fight he'll remember forrest acting like a sore loser and giving him a mocking post fight interview


I despise what he did to the guy

?????? Big deal Tito is a joke anyhow. It just kept him from making excuses and complaining about the judges like he did at the post fight press conference. Forrest apologized, and he didnt do it purposely. Im not a Forrest fan, and he was wrong in what he did, but I think people are being harsh. The real story IMO is Titos attitude at the post fight press conference. Complaining about Forrest stealing his moment, complaining about the judges, and trying everything to keep a job with the UFC by talking himself up. He claimed he was humbled and different. I saw no difference in him last night from any other time than the fact that he lost. He is still the same guy who would destroy the UFC and every fighter in its career to make a name for himself. Im suprised he didnt blurt out that he had a cracked skull again.

BTW props for Dana. He took the high road, but didnt seem like he wanted anything to do with Tito working for the UFC. I know when Chuck retired he said he will always have a place there. He made no such claims last night, only saying "We will see."

Never really like Forrest... I find him to be a complete fool most of the time. He's always trying to grab attention and be the "funny guy" all the time.

"He's fighting Cody Mckenzie next." - Dana
