Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by Bleacher Report MMA writer Damon Martin.
Following former UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin's retirement from MMA, Breen and Martin delve into the career and legacy of “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 1 winner. The two investigate the start of Griffin's hype after his bout against Jeremy Horn, his milestone TUF 1 contest with Stephen Bonnar, his surprise UFC title run and his accumulation of injuries over the last three years. The pair go in on whether Griffin deserved to get his hand raised in the first bout with Bonnar, whether he is a better fighter historically than his rival Tito Ortiz and why many overlook his brief-but-stirring title reign.
Breen and Martin also discuss Griffin's tempestuous relationship with the media, how it could impact his legacy, his greatest moments in the Octagon and more.
