Reports surfaced on Sunday that Griffin had suffered a jaw injury and that was the reason for his hasty exit, but MMAWeekly.com was able to confirm with representatives from Zinkin Entertainment, Griffin's management group, that he is physically fine following the Saturday night fight.

Griffin suffered no broken jaw and he is physically okay, said the Zinkin representative, but emotionally he is definitely not dealing well with the loss.

That really sucks. Forrest is a very emotional guy and he doesn't like to lose. Forrest always said you can beat him but you can never break him. Well, Anderson broke him and I think Forrest is pretty dissapointed with himself on that. I really hope he can recovery mentally from this and get back in that octagon and win his next fight.

Silva being ridiculously disrespectful like he usually is surely doesn't make him feel any better. He can act how he wants to I guess, but I have absolutely no respect for the guy whatsoever, because he has absolutely no respect for his fellow fighters.

I wouldn't deal with that fight so well either, I mean really.....Siva was teasing him! Hands down, face out, and then KO's him with a jab....that's just gotta hurt the ego. Griffin will make his peace with this and use it to get better, I hope.

I don't think bowing when you enter the cage makes you a respectful person. The way you act in general is a lot more important. I don't think it's very respectful to clown your opponents while you beat them up. Neither is most of the stuff he says in interviews. In general I just find him to be really disrespectful.

Like I said, it's up to him to act however he wants or say whatever he pleases, I don't have to like him though.

It's not his fault he's that much better than everyone else. Well, I guess it is. But all of his antics in the cage are simply for entertainment value. He's just making the fight more exciting. He's been nothing but respectful in what he says about other fighters. Disrespect is something you get from Brock Lesnar. You can't fault Anderson for trying to put on a show. At least he doesn't lay on people and then get in their face after he beats them, and then gives the crowd the finger (both hands), and wraps it up by bashing a major sponsor and talking about getting with his wife. As far as I'm concerned, Anderson is a class act. He leaves what belongs in the cage in the cage, and says nothing but positive things about other fighters.

It is not putting on a show. You are in the ring to fight. After you knock the other guy down, if you want him to get back up you give him space and the ref will do it. You dont walk in expose yourself and show up the other fighter by basiclly telling him he has absolutely no worry about you. I wish when he went to help him up Forrest would have kick him in the face and knocked him out. But then we would be talking about how dirty it was for Forrest to do it even. By your labeling Lesnar's antics as disrespectful, and Silva'a as simply putting on a show you just dont like Lesnar and nothing he does will be acceptable, while on the other hand Silva can say and act how he wants and not get called on it.

Does Forrest really need to be in the ring after the fight? What if he walked out of the ring? Forrest has always been an emotional guy. He has cried after many fights, i belive he got emotional after the Jackson win. Was he a school girl then?

Sounds like instead of a broken jaw and a loss of hearing Forrest is suffering from a broken dream and a shattered ego.

I haven't seen anything yet where Forrest is quoted, so it's all speculation at this point. I think he probably believed in his own game plan and didn't stick to it very well, ...or...felt like he didn't get the chance. He probably let himself down, and feels like he let the fans down.

But all this "respect" talk is getting really ridiculous. Silva has a flashy style when he's controlling the fight. Get over it. If Forrest wants to run out of the ring, get over it. If BJ wants to direct traffic to his website get over it.

Silva may be cocky and did look very much so during the fight........ I think the antics were more for the idiot fans that spent the last few months putting down his performances. I think the message was that if someone wants to fight and not run he can put on a show.

I notice some people defending silvas actions (which is fine) but are any of you the some ones that were trashing rashad for doing the same to forrest?

the backlash is bad, heard that fans and ufc fighters are ashamed of griffin actions and are turning on him

i think forrest is to immature and needs to take a loss a like a man, i mean u can't always win, at some point u gotta lose, and u cant cry like a little girl when it happens. Look at Frank Mir, he got his ass handed to him, then u got teased after the fight by brock, but still the guy kept his cool and acted like a gentleman.

Forrest has to learn to lose.

Silva antics in the cage are to throw his opponent off his game plan, and catch him. Its not being disrespectful, cocky, yes, but it works! Griffin got mad and came in swinging, which is what Silva wanted him to do. Completely out classed. He fell into the spider's trap.

Helping him up is disrespectful, and I agree with the other post. Silva is incredible but the showboating shows no class.

These guys are fighters not politicians so anyone clowning the way Silva acted needs to get over themselves. No one cries when other athelets put some style into there sport.

I don't know which sports you're watching, but people ALWAYS complain when other athletes showboat.

If Anderson Silva was a pitcher in baseball he'd offer to walk his strikeout victims back to the dugout.

And if he was a batter, he'd retrieve his own homerun balls and return them to the mound.

If Forrest and other fighters have a problem with it then they should do something about it, Machida was given the same opportunity by Rashad and took advantage of it. Showboating isn't classy but it's not disrespectful either. Running out of the octagon like you stole something is! He should of stood there like a man while Anderson got his hand raised then if he wanted to WALK out of the cage that would be fine.
