MMA Quick Quote: Yeah-ah! Here comes 'The Grave Digger'

Grave-digger_medium

360 questions to ask a "Grave Digger" ... heres one: How will you beat Gian Villante on Feb. 12?

"The win over Bobby Lashley was a good win and got me recognition because of his name. This should be a good fight, too. My only thoughts going in are to win and put on a good show. I know the guy I’m fighting is a good fighter who is hungry and well-conditioned and making his first appearance on the big stage. I know he’s tough and likes to start strong, so let’s see how he does once he gets a little pressure put on him."

Danger! Danger! Chad Griggs has the chance to turn the heavyweight division on its head in just his second Strikeforce fight when he battles Gian Villante this Saturday night (Feb. 12) in a reserve bout for the promotion's heavyweight grand prix tournament. "The Grave Digger" talked to media at yesterday's press conference about making a name for himself by finishing Bobby Lashley in Houston last August and could shock the world (again) in 2011. But first he needs to get past Villante in New Jersey. Anyone think Griggs will be six feet deep on the Showtime telecast from East Rutherford?
