Forrest Griffin: 'I Reccommend to Anybody: Quit Your Job and Start Fighting People'

UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin had an amusing answer when a "reporter" asked him about how his life has changed, going from a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter to a rich and famous star:

"It's been a good ride," Griffin said. "I like not having a job, not having to get up early in the morning is awesome. I would recommend it to anybody. You should probably quit your job and start fighting people."

Griffin, who will defend his title against Rashad Evans at UFC 92, told me when we talked that he's still amazed he gets to make a lucrative living out of doing something he loves. I like that about him.
