As much as I respect Forrest and his excellent heart, heart has never shown to be effective against Anderson Silva. Franklin, Hendo, Leben all showed heart and all got destroyed. Yes I do know that Forrest is very tall and has good ju jitsu, that being said Silva has better ju jitsu and is far superior striking. I see the fight going late into the third round but eventually the knees are goona force a tko of griffin.

I honestly feel forrest can win this. So much that I'm betting a friend even money on him (dumb thing to do, regardless). Silva is a big middleweight, but forrest is huge for a LHW. I dont see the clinch being a factor, forrest is gonna be the stronger fighter here, by a good bit.

The difference in speed here is much too dramatic. Griffin is slow as molasses and plodding while Silva is lightning quick. Horrible matchup for Forrest, his worst yet. Kickboxing match here with Anderson dominating. Silva is one of the most elusive fighters around and with Forrests abysmal hand speed and kick speed he has no shot.

i think that everyone is saying forrest is going to get knocked out too much. he as gone up against some really good strikers and beaten them. i think that he will be too strong for anderson to deal with. and if all else this would be the first real challenge for silva at 205. i think i am going with forrest split or forrest submission. i also think this train of thought comes from me just wanting silva to lose. i want Forrest to prove the spider is mortal to everyone.

i believe forrest has a reach advantage that can make this a slug fest that may give him the upper hand.

no i think striking the only advantage forrest would have in the striking department is that he can take more damage than a drugged rhino. but if he uses his strength i can see him catching Anderson.

Forrest has the deffinate jujitsu advantage.
