The UFC, in conjunction with Tequila Cazadores, awarded Forrest Griffin the first ever UFC Authentic Spirit Award.

The award will be given to a UFC fighter monthly who exemplifies social responsibility, dedication to their art form and good sportsmanship. Griffin was announced as the recipient by UFC President Dana White at a media event held by the UFC, Tequila Cazadores and THQ at Tabu in the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.

Griffin was given the award for his work with the Wounded Warriors program, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors.

this is a good sign for the expansion of the UFC as an organization (for those of us who want to see the UFC expand anyway haha). each major professional sports organization has some type of award similar to this one so it is refreshing seeing the UFC start to become more like them.
