UFC 155 now suffers the brunt of the injury bug with former light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin being forced off the card.
UFC President Dana White announced the news on Wednesday via Twitter that Griffin was out of his fight against Phil Davis for the Dec. 29 card in Las Vegas.
“Forrest has MCL tear and ACL strain. 20 cc’s of blood removed from his knee and the saga continues at the UFC!” wrote White on Wednesday.
Griffin’s injury is just the latest in a year that will most likely be remembered for the amount of fights that didn’t happen because of the health of competitors in the UFC.
That now leaves Phil Davis without an opponent for UFC 155, and no announcement has been made regarding who he will face or if he will remain on the card at all.
