If Tyson Griffin takes another Fight Of The Night award, and he's got a good chance of it against Hermes Franca at UFC 103, the PPV crowd may not see it. Despite Griffin being 5-1 in his last 6 fights with 5 FOTN awards in 8 UFC fights, the fight has been demoted from PPV to prelim, leaving 5 cards on the PPV part of the card.

This is awful news. Tyson Griffin deserves so much better. What more can the UFC ask from this guy? He's 6-2 in the UFC, and like you said FIVE Fight Of The Night awards, 2 of which he was awarded in defeat. He not only puts on an exciting fight, but he showcases a lot of skill everywhere the fight goes. In my opinion if he beats Hermes , he should fight the loser of Penn/Florian for a title shot. They are doing him Jon Fitch dirty.

Cant Franca vs. Griffin take the Sherk vs. Tibau spot? Sherk/Tibau is going to be a boring ass fight. Although Franca/Griffin could be the same. I don't see Griffin wanting to keep this fight standing for long. But when is standing it should be exciting. Sherk/Tibau is going to be a LnP fest.
