Known as “the original Ultimate Fighter” Forrest Griffin will most likely always have a place in the UFC for as long as he desires.

Griffin was last inside the Octagon at UFC 101 against middleweight champ Anderson “The Spider” Silva who had had moved up to light heavyweight specifically for the fight. Silva ended up knocking Griffin out 3:23 into the first round making it his second loss in a row.
