UFC 155 has now taken another injury hit, as Forrest Griffin has suffered an MCL tear and ACL strain according to UFC President Dana White, putting him out of his co-main event slot against Phil Davis.
Yet another injury has impacted UFC 155. The co-main event of Forrest Griffin vs. Phil Davis is now without Forrest Griffin, as UFC President Dana White confirmed today on Twitter that Griffin suffered an MCL tear and ACL strain.
Forrest Has MCL tear and ACL strain. 20 cc's of blood removed from his knee and the saga continues at the UFC!!— Dana White (@danawhite) December 5, 2012
No word on a replacement yet for Forrest (if at all), and he's the latest UFC 155 fighter to withdraw from the card. Chris Weidman and Gray Maynard have already pulled out, and even the original fight of Forrest Griffin vs. Chael Sonnen was swapped once Sonnen was awarded the next title shot against Jon Jones.
It just won't stop, will it? Traditionally the UFC promotes a strong PPV to close out the calendar year, but it's hard to do it when the injuries keep piling up.
