It was September 3rd, 2003 as future champion Forrest Griffin faced popular persona Chael P. Sonnen. The fight didn’t last long as Griffin gets taken down only to catch Sonnen in his biggest hole, the dreaded triangle which he’s lost to many times since. Now with the two set to face-off again at UFC 155 on December 29th, 2012 – it’s unlikely the fight will happen the same as both have evolved immensely since the fight.
Also set on the UFC New Years card will be headliners Junior dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez. Expect the card to continue to stack as time goes on as the UFC loves to put together deep rosters for their end of the year Vegas cards.
