Falls as favorite in Vancouver

September 14, 2019
Griffin lost to Chas Skelly via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC on ESPN+ 16 on Saturday in Vancouver.
ANALYSIS
Griffin seemed to be fighting off a rear-naked choke for almost the entirety of the fight. He was clearly the superior fighter when the two were on the feet, but those moments were few and far between. While Griffin was credited with three passes and two reversals, it didn't quite make up for the long stretches that were dominated by Skelly. Griffin even won the battle of significant strikes by a total of 37 to 21, but it wasn't enough to sway the judges. The 29-year-old is now 0-2 in the UFC after getting his opportunity on Dana White's Contender Series, and while it's easy to see the standup potential, Griffin has work to do in order to become a more complete martial artist.
