The Ultimate Fighter Episode 3 preview: Time for the rematch

Rematches are always tricky business when it comes to fighting. An epic war the first time around certainly doesn't guarantee anything in a second fight just ask Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar about that.  A one-sided knockout doesn't necessarily guarantee the second fight will go the same way -- ask Matt Serra and Georges St-Pierre about that.  And sometimes things...

Forrest Griffin says Wanderlei Silva hit him the hardest

I miss Forrest Griffin. Sure, his fights weren’t the most technical, which some people really care about, but I thought Forrest was at least a somewhat original outspoken voice in the land of PR-speak leading up to fight day. Simply put: Forrest is a funny guy. So yeah. BJ Penn and Forrest are touring around the country, doing UFC open mics, and Gamma Labs caught a short but hilarious...

Brock Lesnar belongs in the UFC Hall of Fame

Thank you to the UFC for inducting Stephan Bonnar and Forrest Griffin and opening the door for Brock Lesnar. There is not one reason now that Bonnar and Griffin are in that Brock shouldn’t be awarded that same respect and honor.
