After enduring three consecutive decisions, Tyson Griffin is going into Saturday’s fight with Gleison Tibau with one this on his mind; he wants the finish.
“If it goes to the ground, I will ground and pound him as much as possible; you know land some elbows, stuff like that,” Griffin told Tagg Radio. “But I’m definitely looking to keep this fight on the feet, and again, get that finish.“
Griffin also commented about his struggles to make the lightweight limit of 155.
“You know, as long as I start my diet early like I did this time, the weight is going to come off real fast and real easy,” Griffin said. “But as everyone keeps telling me, I am the youngest guy in the gym. As soon as I hit that age when my metabolism slows down, it’s going to be real hard to keep doing it. So, hopefully I’ll listen to myself after this fight and keep the weight off.“
