Insane Rumor of the Day: Anderson Silva vs. Forrest Griffin at UFC 101


(Forrest Griffin’s July 2008 interview with StrictlyFighting is suddenly relevant again. Skip to the 0:30 mark for Griffin’s thoughts on the Spider moving up to light-heavy.)

Both MMA Junkie and MMA Bay are independently reporting that UFC 101 (August 8th, Philadelphia) will host a semi-superfight between middleweight champ Anderson Silva and former light-heavyweight champ Forrest Griffin. It would be Silva’s first match at 205 pounds since his 61-second knockout of James Irvin last July — which also happened to be the last time Anderson was entertaining. If this rumor holds up, it would mean the following:


Demian Maia‘s gonna have to wait a while for his title shot, and may take another fight in the meantime.
- Thiago Silva, who was slated to face Forrest Griffin at the event, is now without an opponent. As of this morning, Thiago was still unaware that his fight had been scratched, according to MMA Junkie.
- My God, could we see Anderson Silva in an exciting fight again? Please!?

The word is that verbal agreements are in place for the Silva/Griffin scrap, though it’s not officially signed yet. Not exactly known as a timid fighter, Griffin could be the perfect remedy for the Spider’s recent uninvolved performances, and he fits nicely with Silva’s desire to only take "the biggest fights possible" from now on. The light-heavyweight feature would pump up a card that’s already being headlined by the highly-anticipated lightweight title fight between BJ Penn and Kenny Florian. Man, you Philadelphians get all the good stuff!

Reminder: Voting for our Never Surrender caption contest ends in about 90 minutes. Will any of you break the altered/swetard tie for last place?

I think Forrest Griffin is the perfect opponent for Anderson. Anderson was unfairly blamed for his last 2 fights being boring, it's not his fault Cote's leg snapped and that Leites had a vagina where his penis should have been. Anderson said he wanted an opponent who will FIGHT him.

Well...

Forrest said it himself something like this: "I'm not the guy who does X, or the guy who does Y... I'm the guy that doesn't quit. The one thing I got is that I'll fight you."

Forrest will be the first person Anderson has fought in a while that is significantly bigger than him, and on top of that is an aggressive well rounded fighter. This fight is going to kick ass. It's a total win-win for the UFC.

Silva/Griffin looks like a great fight. It doesn't matter which fighter wins, as long as it's a good fight. I think Silva will have to "show up" against Forrest...if for some reason he doesn't, but still wins a decision, Dana needs to do something drastic to him. We(MMA fans) love a good technical fight, but when your a fighter of Anderson's caliber and know what he is capable of, we deserve his best each time he steps in the octagon.

I never saw this coming, I've known about it for hours now and I still can't believe it's actually going down. I thought the only way I'd see a Forrest vs. Anderson matchup would be when UFC Undisputed comes out! It's seriously going to be insane! I think with the right game plan Forrest can definitely take the fight. He should definitely bring out the flying scissor heel-hook if he gets the chance.

griffin's got a chance with his recent gameplans and execution (minus rd 3 vs rashad) but i think anderson's laser guided punches will probably crack ole forrest's glass chin again when he tries to push the action

first place loser! And its BITCHES Hal, you big dummy! Everything you say is straight stupidity. Burn in hell.

First of all... You two are faggots.

Second, this would be a naaasty fight seeing as how Forrest will not relent even while getting his face smashed in and Anderson is very good at smashing people's face in. Good job, Joe... if it's true.
