5 Fights for Forrest Griffin to Take Upon His Return

Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Forrest Griffin was scheduled to compete at UFC 155 against Chael Sonnen and then Phil Davis, but Griffin was forced out of action with a knee injury.

Griffin was forced to undergo surgery and looks to return sometime later in 2013.

Although Griffin is a former champion and without a doubt one of the most well-known names in the MMA world, it's clear that he isn't a top contender anymore. His fight with Tito Ortiz made both men look slow and perhaps Griffin should've joined Ortiz in the retirement party.

Still, Griffin sports a nice 3-1 record in his last four outings and is among the upper half of the light heavyweight division. That should leave the door open for some options in his return bout.

It will of course ultimately be up to Griffin and his camp as to how they want to proceed but there are a handful of competitive fights and big money opportunities available for the former UFC champion.
