Video: Forrest Griffin mistakes drunk Chris Leben for God

Are you there, God? It's me, Margaret Forrest.

"I remember I had this dream. God was yelling at me and banging on something. Turns out it was just Chris Leben drunk in my room, knocking on the door. I was like, 'Whoa... God, you have red hair?'"

You could blame this one on pugilistic dementia, but this is Forrest Griffin we're talking about, so it doesn't sound as zany coming from him. The original winner of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) was on hand for the UFC Fight Night 37 open workout Q&A (via Bloody Elbow) and fielded questions about everything from his experience on the combat sports reality show -- which included the inebriated escapades of fellow TUF guy Chris Leben -- to advice for up-and-coming mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters. Both Griffin and Leben have since retired from Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), but for very different reasons. Any fight fans think TUF 1 is still the best season ever?
