Shortly following the conclusion of UFC 160, Forrest Griffin announced that he was calling it a career after 26 professional fights -- including 15 with the Las Vegas-based promotion.

Griffin, of course, was one-half of arguably the most important moment in UFC history: the memorable slugfest with Stephan Bonnar at the “Ultimate Fighter 1” finale that help push mixed martial arts toward mainstream acceptance. The Georgia native had plenty of other highlights, whether it was upsetting Mauricio Rua at UFC 76; capturing the light heavyweight strap with a victory over Quinton Jackson at UFC 86 or taking two out of three bouts from fellow Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz.

Griffin exits the UFC with a 10-5 record in the Octagon, making him one of 43 fighters to reach double-digit victories in the promotion -- a figure that is tied for fifth-highest in UFC history. Here is a by-the-numbers look at Forrest Griffin’s UFC career, with statistics provided by FightMetric.com.

Forrest Griffin had many yearly & event accolades as well including a 3 time recipient of "Fight of the Year" in 2005 (Bonnar), 2006 (Ortiz), and 2008 (Q. Jackson), "Upset of the Year" in 2007 / "Submission of the Night" (over Rua), and had 4 "Fight of the Night Awards" (2 of his FOTY's were before event accolade bonuses were given out).

What were the 4 fight of the nights?


It's cool to look at those numbers the end of his career kind of made me forget that he actually was a really solid fighter in his prime

The first 2 FOTY's were before FOTN; The 4 FOTN's were Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (also FOTY), Rashad Evans, Anderson Silva, and Tito Ortiz. The latter 3 were not very good for him though with him getting KO'ed to lose the title, embarassed by Anderson before running out of the ring crying, and then grabbed the mic from Rogan ruining Ortiz's retirement speech.
