Forrest Griffin injured, out of UFC 155

by Dave Doyle | source:

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin is the latest fighter to fall victim to the MMA injury jinx of 2012. A knee injury has forced him out of his Dec. 29 fight against Phil Davis at UFC 155 in Las Vegas.

UFC president Dana White broke the news Wednesday, tweeting "Forrest Has MCL tear and ACL strain. 20 cc's of blood removed from his knee and the saga continues at the UFC!!"

There's no word yet as to who will replace Griffin in the bout against Davis. The fight was originally scheduled as Griffin vs. Chael Sonnen, but Davis took Sonnen's place after the later was pulled from the show in order to coach the next season of "The Ultimate Fighter."

I like the idea of Vinny M getting it. Good chance he gets a sub, even on short notice. Almost everyone else mentioned, I'd expect to see em get wrassled and beat up for 3 rounds.Bader would do, I guess. Wouldn't expect much out of that fight though.

Well, obviously anyone who decides to take it is running on 3 weeks. I was just saying it to say it.
