‘Maybe It’s Time For Forrest To Retire,’ Says UFC 148 Opponent Tito Ortiz

Tito Ortiz has made it known that UFC 148 will be his final fight inside the Octagon. The newly-minted UFC Hall of Famer is fine with that.

However, his opponent, Forrest Griffin, should also be retiring his gloves after the bout according to Ortiz.

“Maybe it’s time for Forrest to retire; maybe he wants to retire,” said Ortiz, during a recent interview with MMA Weekly Radio. “Maybe he’s just letting everybody know that he’s going to retire.”

Griffin, an ex-UFC light heavyweight champion, made some off-the-cuff comments earlier this year, saying he would “retire from life” if he loses to Ortiz, also a former UFC 205 champ.

“It looks like he better put on his retirement shows cause it’s going to be an exciting fight and I plan o having my hand raised,” Ortiz said.

UFC 148 takes place July 7 from Las Vegas. Ortiz-Griffin is the co-main event for the evening.
