Falls to 1-3 in past four bouts
June 27, 2020
Griffin lost to Youssef Zalal via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Hopelessly outclassed on the feet, Griffin attempted to lean on his wrestling game in order to secure the victory, and it wasn't enough. He did land multiple takedowns on Zalal, but Griffin did nothing with his positional advantage and was whipped the second the two men returned to the stand-up. Griffin is a wild and erratic striker who pays zero attention to defense. It's a strategy that simply won't work in the best fighting organization in the sport. Griffin has lost three of his four fights with the company since earning his UFC contract with a submission victory on Dana White's Contender Series back in July 2018.
Next fight scheduled for June 27
June 19, 2020
Griffin will fight Youssef Zalal on June 27 as part of the UFC on ESPN 12, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Griffin earned his first UFC victory as part of the promotion in his last bout versus TJ Brown, picking up a submission win in the second round via guillotine choke. Zalal is also coming off of his first victory, though it came in his debut versus Griffin's in his third match. Both fighters do their best work on the mat, so there's a good chance that will be the scene next Saturday. Griffin and Zalal both stand at 5-foot-10 but Griffin owns a one-inch reach advantage.
Fight officially off

Griffin will not fight Darrick Minner at UFC Las Vegas 2 on Saturday after Minner fell ill prior to weigh-ins, reports.
Griffin did his part in making weight for the event, but his opponent was unable to cut properly due to illness. Minner already expressed his desire to face Griffin when healthy, so it's possible the two could reconnect on a future card.
Opponent off card
June 12, 2020
Griffin will not take on Darrick Minner at UFC Vegas 2 on Saturday after Minner fell ill prior to the weigh-in, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Griffin did his part and made weight but Minner reportedly had stomach problems and was unable to cut appropriately down the stretch, leading to the cancellation. Minner has indicated that he would still like to face Griffin in the future, so it's possible these two could square off at a later date. It's unclear at this juncture whether or not the UFC will pursue a replacement for Minner on Saturday's card, but it may be too short notice.
Booked against Minner on June 13
June 4, 2020
Griffin is scheduled to fight Darrick Minner at the UFC's June 13 event, reports.
Griffin logged his first UFC victory in the form of a submission against T.J. Brown in February, and he'll now be faced with overcoming a winless opponent. Admittedly, Minner has only had one shot in the form of his UFC debut against Grant Dawson, and even then he put up a fight despite being a heavy underdog. Griffin will look to benefit from a three inch height advantage.
