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.”

The Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation, was founded by Randy Couture to honor the veterans of America’s Armed Forces. The foundation was especially formed to raise money and awareness for those wounded in action and their families. To date, more than 24,000 U.S. troops have been wounded in the war against terrorism, which doesn’t include the many more suffering the mental effects.

Many of the injuries are traumatic amputations, gunshot wounds, burns and blast injuries that will retire these brave men and woman from the armed forces. Even though some of these men and woman are severely injured, they have the courage, strength and determination to win this battle.

The Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation’s goal is to help these brave men and women fulfill any of their unmet needs as they return back to civilian life.
