I had thought about it before, and after reading an article on ufc.com I figured I would see what you guys thought.
Who would win: Silva vs Griffin
Griffin has a REAL size advantage, not one like James Irvin claimed, but a substantial one. He also should be the stronger of the two. He has great conditioning and a warriors heart. Plus, he is extremely intelligent and can exicute a nice game plan. Forrest has a quick scramble, he can dish out some ground and pound, and not to forget, he has some powerful leg kicks as well.
Silva is a phenomenal striker, as we all know. He is known for controling fights and capitalizing as soon as you make a mistake. He also has a strong clinch and excellent knees. His ground game is also excellent. Overall, he's comfortable where ever the fight goes, and ussually overwelms his opponents with his striking.
So what do you guys think? Is Griffin too big for Silva? Would Silva be able to control him if they clinched up? What about if Griffin took Silva down.. could Silva escape the GNP? Or would Griffin fall victim to Silva's striking and vicious combinations? Let's here some opinions.Article
Edit: Fifth Choice is supposed to be Griffin Submission.
