11:19 AM ET 06.22 | Former UFC light heavyweight champion and future Hall of Famer Forrest Griffin announced his retirement from mixed martial arts earlier this year, but it looks like there is still a possibility that the fan-favorite and original Ultimate Fighter winner could return to the octagon. At the end of an interview where Griffin was reflecting on his successful career in the UFC, he hinted at a potential return to the octagon if his body allows it.

The pic the interns posted for this article says it's Griffin but it sure doesn't look like him to me.

Step 1) announce your retirement. Step 2) Come "out" of retirement for a payday. Step 3) repeat.

I think that once you announce your retirement you shouldn't be allowed to fight for one year. Either that or the brand has to cap how much you get paid during your next fight.
