Former UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin was forced out of UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II after suffering a nasty knee injury. Griffin was expected to meet Phil Davis in the co-main event.
Griffin (19-7) is coming off a victory over Tito Ortiz to improve to 3-1 in his last four. No timetable for his return to the Octagon has been set.
Griffin posted a picture of his knee with a post on Twitter that read, "This is what you get for Christmas when your naughty."
