"I’ve never felt like that for a fight. I didn’t feel like myself even going out. I was trying to get ready for the fight and I just couldn’t get into the mode to fight. I couldn’t think of what to do. I just froze up, I guess. I don’t know. It’s the first time I’ve ever felt like that. I knew he was tough, he’s a brawler, he’s a tough kid – I just didn’t give him a fight. I didn’t really fight back. I was just in my own head. I’m pretty pissed at myself. I learned obviously I can take a bunch of shots to the face and I know my heart. It’s the worst night I’ve ever had and I still didn’t get finished. Even though it was a horrible performance on my part, I definitely learned from it."
Former WEC/UFC 145-pound number one contender Josh Grispi reflects on his stunning loss to leather-chucking prospect Dustin Poirier at UFC 125: "Resolution" back on Jan. 1 in Las Vegas. "The Fluke" loss all but guaranteed he won't be seeing a 2011 title fight against division champion Jose Aldo, but what about "The Diamond?" Anyone ready to see Poirier mix it up with another top five featherweight?
