UFC Hall Of Famer Forrest Griffin To Join Power Slap League

He will act as "head catcher."

When Dana White’s Power Slap League kicks off next month, UFC great Forrest Griffin will have a part to play.

The viral sport will debut on January 11 with the TBS premiere of Dana White’s Power Slap League. When MMA fans tune in, they will see a lot of fresh faces, but one well-known one—UFC Hall of Famer Griffin—will be prominently featured in the backdrop.

Griffin claims that he will act as the “head catcher” at the Power Slap League matches, ready to catch competitors who trip over after taking a strong slap.

“That double impact,” Griffin told TMZ about the importance of the role.

“You’ve taken the first trauma and when your head hits the ground, bang bang, both sides of your brain actually bounce against your skull. We want to prevent that and make it just the initial impact and have that be what causes you or not causes you to win or lose the competition.”

Griffin, a former UFC champion, has sparred with fighters like Anderson Silva, Tito Ortiz, Rashad Evans, Quinton Jackson, and many more.

Additionally, he competed in one of the most renowned battles in UFC history against the late Stephen Bonnar in the first Ultimate Fighter season finale.
