Tito Ortiz: Maybe Forrest Griffin Should Retire Too   [View Full Version]

‘If I lose to Tito, I’m going to retire from life. Seriously’
~ Forrest Griffin – June 2012

On paper, UFC 148 is supposed to be the final event of Tito Ortiz’s Hall of Fame UFC career, but he’s not planning on strolling quietly into the night.

As a matter of fact, what has Ortiz ever done quietly while he’s been in the UFC?

That’s why when the former light heavyweight champion heard about Griffin’s comments about their third and final fight, Ortiz figured maybe it was just his time to walk away from the sport as well.

“I’m excited for the fight. Forrest is a tough guy and I know he’s training really hard. I just heard a little thing saying that if he loses to me he’s going to retire. Well, it looks like he better put on his retirement shoes cause it’s going to be an exciting fight and I plan on having my hand raised,” Ortiz said when appearing on MMAWeekly Radio.

I picked Forrest in the first two fights, but Im leaning Tito in this one. On paper Forrest should dominate him, but I just dont know if he has the heart to do it. I think Forrest has all the stuff to make this a one sided beatdown except the drive to win. He hasnt shown that since Anderson IMO.

Tito has only won 1 fight since he beat Shamrock (6 years ago). Does he have this heart that your talking about? He has lost his last 2 fights from body shots. Everyone loves to hate on Forrest these days. Why? Because he lost to Rashad, Anderson, and Shogun? Who hasn't? Forrest will run through Tito especially if he attacks that soft middle.

I have a feeling if Forrest wins, he will retire.
