Quoteworthy:

"I watched and I tried to pick it apart and see if I made a mistake, but I just got caught. I could beat myself up over it and say I’ve got to work on this, I’ve got to work on that, but that’s not the case. … I didn’t really take anything away from Gomi. We fight out there with 4-ounce gloves, and anybody can get knocked out. It’s what happened: I got caught. They stopped the fight. It is what it is. I’m not going to complain about it. I think I learned a bigger lesson fighting Evan and getting out-positioned. Being aggressive, I guess, is what makes me make mistakes. Being aggressive against Gomi is what got me caught. Things like that, again, that I can’t really over-analyze and try and change who I am. I’ve got to go out there and fight my fight, and whatever happens, happens."

Tyson Griffin, coming off back-to-back losses for the first time in his career and one that included a devastating KO to former PRIDE champion Takanori Gomi, doesn't find anything of value in his loss to "The Fireball Kid" heading into tomorrow night's (Nov. 20) undercard scrap against Nik Lentz at UFC 123 in Auburn Hills. Is it feasible to think that the Xtreme Couture product, who was once considered one of the top 155-pound contenders, could be released from his Zuffa contract if he drops his third straight on Saturday night?
