Forrest Griffin was somewhat less than pleased when Chael Sonnen was called up for bigger and better things, leaving him without a dance partner for UFC 155. Little Nog graciously offered his services, but the UFC has instead decided to go with someone less likely to test FoGriff’s chin.
“Mr. Wonderful” is of course fresh off his domination of Wagner Prado last weekend, while Griffin decision’d Tito Ortiz in their rubber-match in July. The latter saw Griffin taken down twice by the rather plodding Ortiz, so he better be working HARD on his takedown defense if he doesn’t want to spend the fight on his back and/or defending subs. I’m not sure how much TRT helps with that, but I guess it can’t hurt.
