Breaking the rules in poker is one thing, but breaking them in the Octagon is a whole different world of hurt, as Jason 'jcarverpoker' Somerville found out when he met up with UFC legend Forrest Griffin


No kicking to the groin, no eye-pokes and no attacking the spine explained UFC Hall of Famer Griffin, something that record-breaking TwitchTV streamer Somerville hopefully won’t have to worry about in his local casino!

The recent deal between PokerStars and the UFC saw a slew of the poker site’s biggest names invited to the UFC 232 fight night, with Chris Moneymaker and Daniel Negreanu also in attendance to watch the likes of Jon Jones and Amanda Nunes in action…


Griffin is one of the many fighters who have had a keen interest in poker, famously playing the 2008 WSOP alongside Johnny Chan, and there have been many players and fighters crossing between the two disciplines.

Olivier Busquet and JC Alvarado had perhaps the best-known battle back in 2016 – the smaller man losing out as Busquet turned up in beast-mode!
