2008 was an interesting year for Forest Griffin. He scored an upset win over Shogun Rua, landed a coaching role on “The Ultimate Fighter,” defeated Rampage Jackson for the light-heavyweight title…then ended the year by losing that title to Rashad Evans, but not before suffering a broken hand. Yeah, I think that covers all of it.
But guess what? He’s planning on being back by summertime. So sayeth the good folks at MMAWeekly.com…
MMAWeekly.com spoke to sources close to Griffin later on Tuesday morning who stated that the “Ultimate Fighter” alum is recovering well from surgery on his hand. He is hopeful to make a return during the summertime and should not have to sit out for any major period of time.
According to the information attained, Griffin had surgery on his hand – specifically one of his metacarpals – to repair the injury. He currently has a cast on, but expects to be healed in two to three months. The Georgia native is in good spirits following the surgery, and doesn’t plan on sitting out for any extended period of time.
So the question that remains is, what does he do once he returns? Six months is a long time, especially in the volatile light-heavyweight division. Who do you want to see him fight?
Hey, that sounds like a great idea for a poll…
