    Oh right… thought I might have made a spelling mistake that usually offend the masses so much.

    You should have left up the double post, just to see if those article stealing sites posted the same thing twice.

  • I love watching Griffin fight. Still, I wish the rumored Florian bout was what we were getting though I’m pretty sure this will be entertaining.

    Griffin cannot get an easy fight. He must of pissed off someone somehow.

    Nothing against Tibau, but this appears to be a recent step down in competition for Griffin. I’m with Casey, I would have preferred Griffin to fight Kenny.
