UFC Star's Cold Shoulder Stops Fight

5/3/2010 7:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Forrest Griffin -- one of the most popular fighters in the UFC -- is backing out of his fight later this month because of a bum shoulder ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us the former UFC light heavyweight champ's shoulder injury is serious enough that he won't be able to fight Lil' Nog on May 29 in Las Vegas.

The extent of Griffin's injury is unclear.

Who cares???? Forest is one of the biggest stars in the fastest growing sport in the world, not some small town in Montana, but the fing world.



If he is hurt enough to back out of a fight it must be pretty bad, did you happen to miss the Bonner Griffen fight, he will never quit
