Griffin & Bonnar: UFC Hall Of Famers

The UFC may have been founded in 1993, but it didn’t become

the UFC until 2005. The climax of Season 1 of


Ultimate Fighter on April 9, 2005, a three-round light

heavyweight war between Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar, will be

remembered as one of the greatest fights in UFC history, but more

importantly, as the singular fight that vaulted the organization

into the stratosphere.

Eight incredible years later, UFC President Dana White and TUF

Executive Producer Craig Piligian honored Griffin and Bonnar’s

impact on the organization at the

UFC Hall Of Fame.
