[ UFC 160 - Forrest Griffin ] : “Everybody Loves An Original”
Last night at the UFC 160 post fight conference, the “Original” Ultimate Fighter, Forrest Griffin announced his retirement. Forrest was forced to pull out of 2 of his last 3 fights due to injuries, most recently in December of 2012 he suffered a torn MCL and an ACL strain.
We think this was a good call for the 33 year-old, he’s got nothing left to prove. He’ll always be remembered for his huge heart, both in and out of the cage.
Team Injury-Duty would like to wish Forrest all the best in his future endeavors!
