I just saw this a second ago. Lame. Hopefully Jardine fills in? I can't really think of anyone else off the top of my head.

Here's the story, from ufc.com:
Quote:
Light Heavweight contender Forrest Griffin has been sidelined by a severe staph infection in his knee and today was forced to withdraw from his UFC 70 bout with Ryoto Machida. A replacement is currently being sought to face Machida on the April 21st card, which will be held in M.E.N. Arena in Machester, England.

This really, really sucks. I know Forrest isn't well liked around these parts, but dammit, I enjoy watching him fight.

Watch Chris Price replace him.

Better not be Chris Price. I agree that Jardine should replace Forrest! This should really test Jardines skills!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

It won't be Price conaidering he is a MW. Besides he has lost his last two fights and thus out of the UFC.

Well, I was half joking. I mean, Price came in over against Herman, so him moving to LHW wouldn't be a huge stretch. I honestly don't see it being Price, but I see it being a letdown. Hopefully, I'm wrong.

Jardine wouldn't be a bad replacement.
