TUF 1 Champion Takes the Title!

July 7, 2008


Ever since being the first man to win the title of The Ultimate Fighter, Forrest Griffin has been a fan favorite in the UFC. Who wouldn't love a guy who's not only hilarious, but a baddass in the truest sense of the word? And Saturday night, Forrest proved himself yet again to be The Ultimate Fighter by winning the Light Heavyweight title from Quinton "Rampage" Jackson.

The fight came down to a decision that even Griffin admits was tight. "“I want to thank Quinton Jackson. It was close and I think we’re gonna have to do it again," the victor remarked.

Check out the post fight goodness with both fighters below.

So a huge upset in the UFC during one of the best fights in the sport's history. But here's what we really want to know: Is Rampage gonna give up his purse, as promised during his coaching stint on TUF 7 with Griffin?

PS - What we REALLY want to know is... Double or nothing?
