You may not have known this, but Tyson Griffin came out of retirement this past weekend. His retirement was a self-imposed four-year layoff. He was victorious in his return fight against former Bellator competitor, Jordan Bailey. The fight lasted all three rounds in the URCC promotion and ultimately, Griffin walked away with a unanimous decision win.
However, it was after the fight that would grab the headlines. Griffin has been battling demons and it seemed that his fight was the culmination of overcoming them. Bouts with depression can be more challenging than a five-round title fight and Tyson seems to have come out the winner there, too.
Emotion poured out of the former UFC star who had a lot to say after his victory. He credited supplements (mainly CBD oils) and therapy to his transformation into this happier person.
The sky is the limit for Griffin who is still only 34-years-old.
