Despite a firestorm of rumors regarding a possible rematch between Tyson Griffin and Urijah Faber at 145 lbs, Griffin has stated that he has no intention to fight the California Kid anytime soon.
Griffin spoke recently to TAGG Radio about the possibility of a rematch somewhere in the near future.
“I’m 180 pounds right now,” Griffin said. “There’s no way I’m making 145 pounds. Ever. I don’t see that happening.
Griffin also spoke to how content he feels in the talent rich UFC light weight division.
“There’s no truth to me moving anywhere,” Griffin said. “I’ve never heard that from anybody. I do not plan on moving in weight class or organization. I’m happy with where I’m at.”
“They just get tougher and tougher,” Griffin said of his opponents. “I definitely don’t get a break in competition.
It seems that Griffin would rather work his way through the ranks of the 155 pound division than accept any sort of super fight with 145 pound champion, Urijah Faber.
“I just think it comes down to the way I am and the way I compete, even before I was part of the UFC,” Griffin said. “And as soon as I became a part of [the UFC], I made sure my manager told them straight up and down I want to fight stiff competition. The more challenges I have the better.”
