Griggs will dig another grave. Bobby Lashley pretty much tapped to strikes from mount and sent packing to fight regional shows.

Griggs is a classic value for money guy. He doesnt look like anything special but boy can he pack a punch. Iv never seen him involved in a boring fight yet. Im on this express train! CHOO CHOO!!

Good fight. Browne is atrocious technically but he seems to be really big, rather strong, rather powerful AND mighty awkward. He hasn't fought someone who can pick holes in his game. His striking in terms of skill (shoulder roll, superman punch etc) is quite decent but his balance and punching technique leave alot to be desired.

Griggs goes after it so maybe he can be the one. I hope he wins.

Griggsy was the underdog against Lashley, Villante and Overeem and he stopped all of them.

Same, the guy reminds me of Chris Leben.

A Leben/Griggs comparison is acceptable.

I can actually see Griggs being a top contender in the UFC... Maybe not a title challenger but a top 8 HW or so.

I hope Griggs gets to him. Griggs is a brawler and thats masking the fact he has some decent skill. I'm on the gravy train come March.

Who would've thought that a firefighter from AZ, brought in as a record padder for Lashley would be at this level? I hope he can make some decent money with the UFC for his family.

Might do okay in the UFC. If he beats BRowne, he may be stepped up significantly which may hurt his earning potential. If Griggs can win, he can get the win bonus AND maybe KOTN or FOTN.

If he does well in the UFC, by well I mean by beating guys like Travis Browne. I'm not expecting miracles. They need to make a ****ing movie about him, its a great story.

I hope that Griggs wins but I doubt it Lashley gasses in every fight and Oldereem is big and talented but has got no heart. Griggs is powerful, explosive and has great gnp but he has no defence and just throws hayemakers, Brown will use is length and footwork to outjab Griggs
