Griffin (sp?) isn't quite as aggressive as early in his career because he is a lot smarter. He still goes forward all the time. I wouldn't expect this to be boring.

Wow this is going to be a magnificent fight I never considered this fight like many others but DAMN. When i think about it Forrest is pretty much built to give Anderson so trouble. I don't know if Anderson has ever encountered anyone close to his sides besides Franklin. Forrest is a huge dude and will match Anderson in nearly everything length and height wise anyways.

I think Silva will be able to get the KO more than likely but as allways ive gotten pull for my main man Griffin. Even if he loses it adds another top name to his list and more experience under his belt.

WAR GRIFFIN!!!

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

Really?? I don't know if I have ever seen Forrest in a "snoozer". I think that is the exact reason the match makers are giving Silva this fight... they know Anderson wont be able to dance around the whole time cuz Forrest is gunna be warring on that ass!r

Favorite Fighters
1.) WAND
2.) Nick Diaz
3.) Korean Zombie

Forrest really has only been beaten when he's been taken down. Tito, Jardine and Evans all had him on the ground to beat him and he was beating them all standing. I think he'd give Silva a good run for his money, he has a definite height advantage.
