Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Gross Photo of the Day: Forrest Griffin’s Mutilated Knee

If you were to ask someone like Tim Kennedy why so many fighters have been pulling out of their scheduled fights due to injury this year, he would likely tell you that more often than not, they were faking it. And while he would have at least one case to cite as an example, we’d still like to believe that 90% of the fighters who have gone down with injuries recently were being honest with us. Still, even BG was suspicious when Forrest Griffin withdrew from his UFC 155 contest with Phil Davis, because let’s be honest, it was a terrible matchup for him to begin with. FoGriff has repeatedly stated over the past year or so that his retirement from the sport was looming on the horizon, so one would imagine that he’d like to go out on a win, or at least a fight he saw as winnable heading into it.

Well, you’ll be happy (and disgusted) to know that Griffin wasn’t faking anything, unless by faking, you mean “intentionally taking a sledgehammer to his knee until he passed out from the pain.” Because if the above photo that Forrest tweeted on Christmas is indeed legitimate (and we’re not sure how it couldn’t be), then there is no way in hell he could have possibly faked the gruesome MCL and ACL injury he suffered in training.

I mean, just look at that thing. It looks like one of the way-past-expired melons you find at a Korean market. It looks like someone hollowed out a bowling pin and stuffed it with rancid cottage cheese. It looks like Griffin’s soul after the Anderson Silva fight. It looks like…well, you get the point. No word yet on how long Griffin will be out of action, but if Dominick Cruz is any indication, expect to see Griffin back in the octagon in mid 2026.

It's not that bad. Just rub some dirt on it and you'll be fine.

Looks like a Christmas ham stuffed the wrong way up a plucked goose's ass.

Who fixed that thing, a five year old? It looks like a sideways drawing of sunshine and happiness you would hang on a refrigerator with magnets.

My dick's looked worse after a Saturday night in Korea, but not by much

So what if he has a vagina on his knee? Some people might find that sexy.

It looks like his knee cap is trying to stick it's tongue out at me

I took a look at my wife's placenta after the birth of our kids (just to appease my morbid curiosity - I suppose) and it is dead even on the gross scale with FoGriff's pod-person knee cap.

"It looks like Griffin’s soul after the Anderson Silva fight."

Well played Mr. Jones...well played indeed.
