    I can't believe Tyson "May as well go make a sandwich" Griffin got fight of the night. That dude couldn't finish a milkshake…

    That's why he got fight of the night, Juan. He couldn't finish, so they kept punching and kicking back and forth. He specializes in that stuff. But that was a pretty gnarly leg lock he got himself out of without popping his knee…somehow.

    Oh, yeah, and Junie Browning……welcome to reality, kid.

    I know, I just hate watching Griffin fight because you know its gonna be 3 rounds of baby punches. Too bad dude didn't finish that leg lock. Maybe we could have watched some pre-lims instead of the stubby king of the lolly pop guild..
