Despite losing Chael Sonnen as his opponent, Forrest Griffin will remain on the UFC 155 card this December to close out 2012. UFC President Dana White confirmed as much this week in a conference call regarding Sonnen's coaching slot opposite Jon Jones on The Ultimate Fighter.

Now, Griffin has a new opponent, as the UFC announced on Friday that Griffin will now meet Phil Davis on the card. The bout is likely to serve as co-main event under the Heavyweight Championship bout between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos.

I don't like the match up, but understand building Davis back up.

Sucks that the UFC even has to. I like Davis though.

I've got him by UD. Forrest is gonna get taken down and punched . Not to say he won't land a few though just don't think he is as relevant as Davis COULD be

Am I the only one excited for this fight? IMO Davis is a much better fight for Forrest.

Still a pretty good matchup. As long as Davis can take Forrest down, which I see happening many times, than he should be able to pull out the win here.

I like it too, but Bader is coming of the loss to Machida. Hopefully Bader gets a fight soon and wins, and if Davis wins the fight with Forrest, it would make total sense at that point.

Looks like Davis will get to sharpen his stand up without the fear of being ko'd. If things don't go well, down to the floor the fight goes.

That Lil' Nog fight would have been better but this is still a pretty good fight. A good test for Davis too considering how big a guy Forrest is and that he's not the easiest guy to take down.

I agree with the people above me though. Davis/Bader and Lil' Nog/Griffin are the fights I wanted to see.

Ahhhh Poor Forrest.....went from getting smashed into oblivion by ChaCha to getting buried six feet under by Mr. Wonderful.

Happy retirement!
