"UFC gave me a call a while back and I was training with eight pounds and the [thought of] taking a fight when I'm not really training MMA at all was terrifying," (Forrest Griffin) said. "But now that I'm training I'll have somewhere to fit those nerves." Always the company man, Griffin said he wouldn't volunteer to fight Jones, but "if it happens, I guess it happens." It wouldn't be the brightest idea, though, Griffin pointed out. "That's a great fight to take a year layoff with injury fighting a guy coming off like a hot three-fight win streak," Griffin remarked sarcastically.
