Forrest Griffin to Miss Most of 2009 With Hand Injury

From the UK Sun:

FORREST GRIFFIN could be sidelined for the rest of the year after sources revealed his hand injury is worse than first feared.

The former light heavyweight champion broke his fist during his unsuccessful title defence against Rashad Evans last month and has since had pins inserted into his hand to help the healing process.

Griffin was originally set to be out of action until May but industry insiders told SunSport he will not be back inside the Octagon until Autumn at the earliest.

If nothing else, this clears the way for Rampage Jackson to fight Rashad Evans for the belt without having to wish he was trying to get his revenge on Forrest first.
