Forrest Griffin has sustained a knee injury and is forced to withdraw from his UFC 155 bout with Phil Davis, according to UFC president Dana White.
The light heavyweight tore his medial collateral ligament, or MCL, and strained his anterior cruciate ligament, otherwise known as his ACL.
“[Griffin had] 20 cc’s removed from his knee and the saga continues at the UFC,” Whtie said in a post on Twitter.
No opponent has been named to replace Griffin in the fight with Davis, but it can only be assumed that a search is underway.
When contacted, Davis’ coach, Eric Del Fierro, had only one response to the news that his fighter’s opponent was injured: “Damn.”
GRACIEMAG.com will continue to update on a replacement opponent as more information becomes available.
