Prior to Forrest Griffin leaving to Brazil Forrest said  “I fight Mauricio “Shogun” Rua for the second time at UFC 134 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I won the first fight four years ago and that was really a good night for me. You can tell that just by how stupid I acted after the fight.

The whole momentum, finishing the fight with 14 seconds left, it was one of those things – in that fight I didn’t think he was gonna stop me, and I’m not gonna quit so I figured I’d win. And it’s the same mentality this time. I’m gonna try and go forward, I’m gonna fight him and I’m not gonna back down. I’m not gonna fall down and crumble, and every scramble, I’m gonna scramble with him.

Yeah, there’s a good chance that he’ll catch me with a running hook or a knee or something, and I’ll be done, but he’s gonna have to earn that. I’m coming after him. I’m in a pretty good place mentally because I’m not so attached to the outcome. I care more about how I perform and more about not going out there and laying an egg, a.k.a. pulling an “Anderson Silva.” As long as I fight and fight well, I don’t give a hoot.”

Xtreme Couture Goes 7-0 for the Weekend

Posted: September 26, 2007 by Xtreme Couture MMA in Forrest Griffin, Tyson Griffin, xtreme couture

Xtreme Couture fighters capped off an incredible week Saturday night in Anaheim. Tyson Griffin won his 3rd “Fight of the Night” Award after defeated Thiago Tavares; and Forrest Griffin shocked the so-called experts by choking out Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.

The weekend saw Xtreme Couture fighters beat a Chute Box fighter, a Brazilian Top Team fighter and a fighter who trains under Josh Barnett and Erik Paulson.

Since August 25th, Xtreme Couture fighters are 12-1.  With all of the talented athletes in the gym pushing and mentoring each other we look to keep the streak going with several tough fights coming up in October and November.

(Phil Friedman & Joey Varner before heading to the Orleans Arena)

Xtreme Couture fighters were a perfect 4-0 at the International Fight Organization’s “Fireworks in the Cage III”. Phil Friedman, Joey Varner, Josh Haynes and Eric Pele excited fans at The Orleans Arena with dominant finishes.

In one of the night’s featured bouts Eric “Big E” Pele laid a beating on Antoine “Herc” Hayes. Stopping the big man from Chicago by a brutal 1st Round TKO. Big E laid Herc out twice with thunderous punches before Herb Dean stopped the carnage. Hayes had a number of low class, disparaging things to say about Eric Pele at the Press Conference. But Eric let his massive fists do the talking in the cage and had the definitive last word.

Josh Haynes made his debut as a member of Xtreme Couture. He engaged in a toe to toe war with a very game John Cornett. Both men were bloodied and staggered a number of times. But midway through the 3rd round Josh landed a monstrous overhand right that flattened Cornett. It was the definition of a highlight-reel KO. I’m sure you’ll be seeing it on IFO commercials and the opening sequence of future shows.

Joey Varner returend to the cage after a three year absence due to shoulder surgeries. Joey who is known for his stand-up skills (he’s our Muay Thai teacher) shocked everyone by submitting his opponent, Josh Marker. Joey almost put Marker away with a triangle choke, before transitioning into a beautiful armbar.

Kettlebell instructor Phil Friedman made his professional debut against 6’6″ 263lb Mark Rommel. Rommel who trains with Josh Barnett appeared to have Phil in trouble early in the round but Phil swept him, took his back and then rained punches down on Rommel’s temples for :45 before Mario Yamasaki had seen enough.

So far Xtreme Couture fighters are 5-0 this week. Gray Maynard needed just 9 seconds to Knock Out Joe Veres at Ultimate Figth Night 11 on Wednesday.

Tyson Griffin and Forrest Griffin look to make it a clean sweep tonight at UFC 76 in Anaheim.
