Don’t you dare forget Chad Griggs is making his light heavyweight debut tonight

What happens to sideburns of power when the man between the ‘burns loses about 30 pounds of kickass? We’re going to find out tonight when Chad Griggs steps his grave-digging feet into the Octagon for the second time, and for the first time as a light heavyweight. It’s safe to assume Grggs Vs. Diabate will be a ‘must watch’ on the FX prelims purely based on MMA Math. Griggs is a dude who channels 19-year-old Vitor Belfort’s spirit in the guise of a Tucson, Arizona firefighter, paramedic and IFL (never die) vet. He hasn’t seen a fifteen minute match in his entire career, and yeah… He has sideburns of power. They are confirmed supernatural. If I was Chad Griggs’ manager, I would make T-shirts that simply read ‘I Finish’ with an empty plate featuring some crumbs and a crushed beer can next to it. All of this wrapped in an opponent like Cyrille Diabate means there’s a good chance fireworks will be going off in the Belle Centre (pronounced sen-truh) and Griggs’ firefighter senses will be tingling along with his fists. Just look at What Griggs said to MMAJunkie about the fight we’re going to see in a few hours.

“I’m just going to have to get in there and turn it into a brawl,” “It’s hard to throw a kick when you’re backing up.”

“He’s going to have to weigh 206 pounds, and I don’t have a doubt in my mind I’m going to be stronger than him,” “Someone’s going to bleed.”

Can’t wait. Can’t.
