On the heels of a report that Forrest Griffin could miss all of 2009 due to a broken hand suffered in late-December, sources have informed MMA Weekly that Griffin expects to be fully healed in just two ti three months and is anticipating a summer return to action:
According to the information attained, Griffin had surgery on his hand – specifically one of his metacarpals – to repair the injury. He currently has a cast on, but expects to be healed in two to three months. The Georgia native is in good spirits following the surgery, and doesn’t plan on sitting out for any extended period of time.
With the surgery and recovery time, he expects a likely return to action summer. Until then, he will stay busy with other work, such as seminars and the like, although he is never one to stray too far from working out with teammates at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas.
