Why Forrest Ran – Griffin Camp Reveal Dislocated Jaw – Sorces Now Say Forrest Is Not Injuired

The mystery of Forrest Griffin’s jog from the Octagon in Philadelphia immediately after being knocked out spectacularly by Anderson Silva at UFC 101 was clarified Sunday when the American’s camp revealed he had suffered a dislocated jaw after being struck by the supremely-gifted Brazilian.

Griffin was roundly criticised in the hours following the fight, and for failing to show at the post-event news conference, but Griffin had been taken to the hospital for checks, unable to hear in one ear, and in order to get his jaw checked.

The demolition of Griffin was staggering in both its simplicity, and enactment. Silva, the 185lb UFC champion, fighting Griffin at light-heavyweight, measured the American up for the first minute of the fight, and he now does with all his rivals.

Silva circled his prey and was hardly touched by Griffin during the three and a half minutes the contest lasted in the opening round of a fight scheduled for three periods.Silva had landed first with a right hook in the second minute, then an upper cut, two straight left hands down the pipe, and had Griffin on the ground.Clean, accurate strikes. Griffin threw and struck, but landed with little. After some ineffective ground and pound, Silva called Griffin to his feet.Griffin fought back, but was clearly dazed and confused. Silva, his hands hung low, called Griffin in for a toe-to-toe war, and ended the contest with a countering left jab/left cross which put Griffin on his back, clearly hurt, and finished. Immediately afterwards, Griffin jogged from the arena with his management team.

UPDATE  UPDATE  UPDATE

MMAWeekly.com now says they have comments to back up the fact that Forrest Griffin is in fact NOT injured.

Following a devastating knockout loss to UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva at UFC 101 on Saturday night, former 205-pound champion Forrest Griffin wasted no time getting up from the mat and quickly exiting the Octagon. 

At the post fight press conference, UFC President Dana White said he hadn’t seen or heard from Griffin after the fight and he could be “back in Georgia” at that point. 

“He’s an emotional guy,” commented White. “He came into this fight confident that he was going to beat Anderson Silva.”

Reports surfaced on Sunday that Griffin had suffered a jaw injury and that was the reason for his hasty exit, but MMAWeekly.com was able to confirm with sources close to the fighter’s camp that he is physically fine following the Saturday night fight.

Griffin suffered no broken jaw and he is physically okay.

Griffin, who is ranked as a top five light heavyweight, faced Silva Saturday night in the co-main event, and struggled with the Brazilian’s speed and unbelievable accuracy during the bout. 

After two knockdowns early in the round, Griffin was caught with a quick straight right hand that put him down on the canvas for the final time as he waived to the referee to stop the fight. 

We will not know for sure until UFC posts their reports of injuries. If Forrest has no injurys, what made him run out of the ring?

UFC Official Medical Suspensions

The Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission has announced that a total of six UFC 101 fighters will be forced to sit the sidelines after sustaining various injuries in their matches.

Main event fighter Kenny Florian will be forced out a minimum of 45 days following his disappointing loss to lightweight champ BJ Penn. Florian must have a CT scan on his facial bones, regardless of whether Florian is cleared by a doctor or not, he’s still suspended for 45 day for precautionary reasons.

Former UFC light heavyweight champ Forrest Griffin sprinted out of the arena following his embarrassing loss to Anderson Silva, skipping the post-fight doctor’s check-up. It was being reported yesterday that Griffin suffered a broken jaw, however it appears that those reports were inaccurate as the PSAC made no mention of it, only forcing Griffin out for 30 days for precautionary reasons.

Speaking of “The Ultimate Fighter” winners, Amir Sadollah will be joining his Xtreme Couture teammate on the shelf as he too will be out for the next month due to precautionary purposes.

Tamdan McCrory needs a full eye exam and doctor’s clearance before returning to the Octagon. His suspension varies in length due to the complexities of his injuries.

Dan Cramer and Jesse Lennox will also be shelved following their losses this past weekend inside the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, PA.
