"He's a big man. It was tough, but my corner was talking to me, telling me that he was going to come hard and take me down, so I was just staying calm on the bottom. I felt him working hard, getting tired. Every time he posted up I was moving my hips, trying to make him hold onto me. I was hammer fisting him -- I caught him with a couple of good ones. Every time he posted up, I'd catch him with something and he'd drop right back down. It's exactly how we planned -- he got tired.... His shots were getting weak and weak. I was able to stuff him and push him down, which is exactly what we planned on doing."
-- Hired can Chad Griggs talks about his stoppage of the previously undefeated Bobby Lashley at Strikeforce: "Houston" last evening. No one, except perhaps his 15 family members in attendance at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, gave the "Grave Digger" much of a chance to beat, much less pound out, the former two-time WWE heavyweight champion. But his corner apparently saw a weakness in the "Dominator" and exploited it, demonstrating that he still has a long way to go before even sniffing a title shot. Brock Lesnar he is not. Not now, anyway. Is this an experience that will motivate Lashley (who was reportedly carted off on a stretcher backstage) to train harder and propel him to the next level or will he forever be nothing more than a hulking sideshow?
