Anderson Silva is to fight Forest Griffin

At UFC 101 Anderson Silva will be fighting Forest Griffin. This fight hopefully will/should be a little more exciting then the previous one.

Re: Anderson Silva is to fight Forest Griffin

And it will be in Philly!
And it will be co-headlining with BJ Penn vs. Kenny Florian!
I can drive to that fight!

I'm totally geeked up for it already!

Re: Anderson Silva is to fight Forest Griffin

I think Silva has this as well but if you look on ufc.com Silva also stated he wants a fight with Fedor.. what do you all think bout that? I personally think Silva would lose but what are your thoughts?

Silva would get his arse handed to him by Fedor. As for the Silva vs. Forrest fight....Silva will most likley end that due to ref stoppage late in the 2 round.

Re: Anderson Silva is to fight Forest Griffin

Silva would loose too Fedor.

Griffin is very underestimated and I think that his fight with Bonner gave highlighted him as a brawler but in pretty much every fight he has consistently improved his game and I think he will give Silva more than a few problems.

It wont be a quiet match for sure.

Re: Anderson Silva is to fight Forest Griffin

This fight will be a brawl and closer then most think. Forrest is a good wrestler and is not scared to exchange. As long as he covers well and doesn't any clean shots on his suspect chin....should be a very competitive fight.


Fedor would win on the ground.....if he chose to stand wilthn anderson it would be a close fight.

UFC matchmaking is something else...


Forrest is going to take the biggest beating he has ever taken...
