Forrest Griffin (19-7) seems content with his current spot on the UFC roster and is starting to really embrace life.
“Life’s good,” said Griffin on MMA Interviews. “I keep complaining but nobody wants to hear it. All my needs are met. I’m happy.”
Earlier in the week Griffin learned that his UFC 155 opponent Chael Sonnen (27-12-1) was off the PPV. Instead, Chael was moved to coach the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter across from Jon Jones (17-1). They will fight in April for the light heavyweight championship. Dana White hinted New Jersey as a possible venue, but couldn’t confirm that.
Phil Davis (10-1-1 NC) has been named as a replacement to take on Griffin at UFC 155. Both men are coming off a win.
UFC 155 takes place December 29 as the company’s final show of 2012.
