With the UFC in Auburn Hills, there have been plenty of MMA fighters in the area this week. One of those fighters, Forrest Griffin, decided to take a trip to Ann Arbor to visit Rich Rodriguez and the Michigan football program. He stopped by practice, got a personalized jersey, chatted with Rich Rodriguez and strength and conditioning coach Mike Barwis and also got to check out the Big House.
What's interesting is that Griffin was born in Columbus, Ohio. Despite this, the trip to Ann Arbor seems to have turned him into a Michigan fan, meaning he will probably be cheering for the Wolverines rather than the Buckeyes next week when The Game is held down in Columbus.
