Round 1 – Both fighters stay light on their fight while measuring up the other. Griffin misses wide with a head kick. After resetting, he then fakes a low kick. Silva remains ever patient. The fighters paw before Silva catches a low kick, kicks back and tries to throw Griffin to the mat. Griffin remains on his feet and resets. Griffin again goes high and misses with a kick. Silva charges forward with a combination and then knocks Griffin down with a subsequent shot that's partially a knock down and partially a slip. Griffin waves him in for more. Silva connects. Griffin bobs and weaves and then throws a punch, and Silva counters and knocks him down again. He awaits for Griffin to get back up and shakes his hand. Surreal. Silva drops his hands, avoids a one-two and then knocks Griffin down again with a quick and short right to the chin. Silva waits a second before going in for the finish, and the ref halts it. Anderson Silva def. Forrest Griffin via knockout (punch) - Round 1, 3:23.
(Forrest Griffin stormed out of the cage immediately after the fight. Security tried to stop him, but he shoved his way free and ran backstage in almost a full sprint.)
