I don't see it happening but it would be cool. I wonder what that would do for Forrest's standings in the LHW division.

I don't think it would do much to his LHW rankings. It would defenitly move him up in the P4P rankings and would really hurt Silva's P4P rankings. I just think at the rank Forrest is at a win wouldn't move him and a loss might bump him only a couple of spots.

exactly what i was thinking.

yes these are two big names and might sell PPVs, but this match has potential to be a snoozer

silva only has 4 fights left... why not put in the ring with more aggressive fighters who aren't afraid to engage, and force silva to actually fight. the LHW pool is deep and there are more fitting LHW opponents out there that silva can face

Anderson Silva's Reach is at 77.5 inches and
Forrest Griffin's Reach is at 77 inches so not much difference.

This would be a very exciting fight to watch. I think Silva would win even with going up a weight class.

You know what, I'm actually going to pick the underdog in this fight. I think Forrest Griffin can win a decision here if he can keep it on the ground. He has a very good ground game and is a large light heavyweight. I think he can avoid being submitted and control Silva on the ground. Standing, I suggest he just uses leg kicks and keeps his distance. This fight might not be the most exciting, but it will be to me just because seeing Forrest win would make me really happy.
