Forrest Griffin Out, David Heath In

Forrest Griffin was recently diagnosed with a Staph infection and has been removed from the UFC 70 fight card in the U.K. Forrest was set to fight Ryoto "Lyoto" Machida and now Lyoto will go head to head with David Heath according to the Fight Network's Loretta Hunt.

David Heath sports an undefeated MMA record of 9-0-0 as Machida also has an unblemished MMA record of 9-0-0. This appears to be a suitable replacement and we anticipate a great deal of action in this fight on April 21.

Heath has prior UFC experience in the undercards of UFC 62 with a submission win against Cory Walmsley and at Ultimate Fight Night 7 in December of 2006 against Victor Valimaki by split decision. Prior to those fights, Heath submitted Sean Salmon at FightFest on July 16, 2006 to snap Sean's undefeated record at the time.
