Forrest Griffin out of UFC 155 with knee injury
The injuries from the MMA world continue to roll out as former light heavyweight champ Forrest Griffin becomes the latest addition to the injury list. UFC President Dana White had let it be known via Twitter that he is out with both an MCL tear as well as an ACL strain.
“Forrest Has MCL tear and ACL strain,” White tweeted. “20 cc’s of blood removed from his knee and the saga continues at the UFC!!”
No replacement or removal has been suggested at this time for Phil Davis. The time to repair an MCL has been proven to be difficult for many fighters, and usually can take a week to months to heal based on the extent of the tear. The injury is not as bad as a full ACL tear as we’ve seen with the welterweight and bantamweight champ.
Griffin was last seen taking a decision over Tito Ortiz at UFC 148, and taking a loss to Mauricio Shogun Rua prior to that at UFC 153.
Davis will be looking to get back in the cage after a dominating performance over Wagner Prado at UFC on Fox 4. We will be keeping you updated on the story as it develops.
