It appears Forrest is out due to a bad infection, no replacement has been found yet.

i think the ufc have got to step up now and not just palm us off with anybody as a replacement... they need to show the fans in the uk that we matter by putting a big name fighter in because that definately looked like it could have been the fight of the night......... I'M ABSOLUTELY GUTTED about forrest not fighting

UFC will most probably throw some pommy at Machida.

Dam was looking forward to this fight, another test for Griffin facing Machida, i hope he didnt pull out cause he is afraid of Machida? Just never no after that loss to Jardine could have got to him.

It wont be Jardine 'cause Forrest just lost to him. Wow, this is going to be a tough decision for Dana. His only choices are Rampage and Tito. Their they only two I can think of w/substantial time off. I dont know if the're is enough time for either of them to train. This is where Dana needs to sign Cung Le put him against Machida or maybe find a local fighter over their in the UK. Cage Rage has been very successful so maybe that have somone. Uhm, this is a dangerous fight for any LHW to take. Cool, take him off the main card and put Kong vs. Silva on the main.

Griffin out of England UFC

by Dave Meltzer

Dave@wrestlingobserver.com

The UFC injury woes in the last week continued with Forrest Griffin having to pull out of his UFC 70 match on 4/21 in Manchester, England with Lyoto Machida.

Griffin is suffering from a staph infection in his knee. UFC attempted to get both Keith Jardine and Jason Lambert as replacements. Jardine is out with a shoulder injury, and Lambert is still hurting from his 3/3 match with Renato Sobral that he ended up winning. At this point they are still looking for a new opponent for Machida for the show that airs on Spike TV.

maybe they could throw bisbing in there and lose the crappy bisbing sinosic match, although i dont know that they want the UKs rising star to have that tough of a fight in his home country....rampage may be the answer here also, but were he to lose that would screw up his match with chuck

Pointon is on the Cage Rage card so that's not it thankfully. Jardine makes the most sense to me personally.

This is rubbish. I've spent £200 on a ticket for this only for the rumours of Tito to vanish (not that I got it on the strength of rumours) and now Griffin has pulled out. Bearing in mind there is no title fight on the card, if this carries on, it'll be more like an ultimate fight night than a PPV. It's still 5 weeks away yet, so I'm praying nothing happens to AA, Werdum, Cro Cop or Bisping!!! I know it's still a decent card really, but still, I was really looking forward to the Griffin v Machida fight.
