Knee Injury Forces Forrest Griffin Out of UFC 155 Bout With Phil Davis
By FCF Staff
Another UFC star has been hit by an injury, as the promotion’s president Dana White announced Wednesday that Forrest Griffin will no longer compete at UFC 155 due to a knee injury. The former TUF winner had been scheduled to fight Phil Davis on the December 29th card.
White announced via his Twitter account:
Forrest Has MCL tear and ACL strain. 20 cc’s of blood removed from his knee and the saga continues at the UFC!!
No information as to a possible replacement for Griffin, or a timeline for the light-heavyweight’s return were included.
The 33 year-old Griffin hasn’t competed since July when he worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Tito Ortiz.
UFC 155 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena and will feature a heavyweight bout between champion Junior dos Santos and former champ Cain Velasquez.
