Apparently Wanderlei Silva isn't a fan of fighting guys he trains with, even though it's sometimes part of the business. And although there's no guarantee this could happen, if SIlva beats Quinton Jackson at UFC 92, he thinks his next fight could be such a situation-current UFC LHW Champion and sometimes-training partner Forrest Griffin.

The authors made that title REALLY misleading. I thought Wanderlei was going to talk about how he would murder Forrest.

Misleading if you didn't know they were training partners I suppose.

Aside from Lyoto Machida, I think this is the second worst possible matchup for Forrest. Forrest is best when he can dictate the pace, control the distance, and fight on the outside. Mixing it up occasionally with some trip takedowns and GnP. A lot of those things would be taken away as Wanderlei would be up in his face and would have the better thai boxing. Forrest's best bet would be getting this fight on the ground immediatley, which I think is a really tough task.

You all seem to be missing the fact that Rashad is going to destroy Forrest. So Wandy may be getting all worked up for nothing.

Predictions are so great when they are based on fact-

Marty Mcfly just got back from the future and told me that Rashad decided not to fight on the grounds that forrest had too big of Monkey ears and too harry of a chest-

I looked on google for the "Fact book of the future and the "jerk" Fact book... no luck yet-

And theres no way that Forrest can beat Rampage.........ER>>>> UHM
Nevermind.

I really like Forrest and I think he will have no problem with Rashad because Forrest is a more technical fighter than Chuck is and Rashad strikes just like Rampage. The Wandy fight I don't know I agree Wandy would be in his face so much he would soon caught Forrest and put him to sleep. End result Forrest beats Rashad, Wandy beats Rampage, Wandy beats Forrest, Chuck then takes rematch with Wandy beats him becomes champ again then retires before he take another fight lol.

It would suck to have to fight a guy you train with. On the other hand these guys are PROs for a reason. Fighting friend or foe should have no bearing. Not that punching somone you don't like "feels" better. In the end if Wany wants UFC gold he will have to fight Forrest.

Lol not quite sure I agree but I would like to see Wand face Forrest, but I think it would turn into a LnP.
