The Ultimate Fighting Championship will apparently scrap a UFC 101 bout between former UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin (16-5 MMA, 7-3 UFC) and top contender Thiago Silva (13-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) in favor of a Griffin vs. Anderson Silva (24-4 MMA, 9-0 UFC) match-up.

Sources close to the organization today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) a meeting was held last week to discuss the Anderson Silva vs. Griffin bout and that verbal agreements are now in place.

Interesting...well, at least it's still a Silva he's facing. Anderson had better keep those dancing shoes on considering what Forrest was able to do to Rua as the super-heavy underdog.

Silva by decapitation due to head kick. I'm sorry but this fight will not be close.

remember Rua wasnt 100% in that match..this should be an 1st or 2nd rounder for Silva...

Hopefully this actually happens. I'm going to UFC 101 and this will make my day if it really goes down. I would actually lean towards Forest at 205.

I'm tempted to take Forrest as well, assuming this doesn't turn into the MMA version of Dancing With The Stars again.

If this fight happens, I'll gladly participate in an avatar bet with anyone willing to take Forrest.

I'll take Anderson via TKO.

This is HUGE if it happens...

I see either guy winning a decision though as Forrest will try to push the pace, and Anderson will not be able to dance around... Forrest also has that amazing chin

A lot of rumors are swirling, so I dont want to buy into this yet.

But I voted for Griffin by dec.

Wow, much better than the Jardine bout in my opinion. I can't imagine how this bout could possibly be boring. Who would have expected the UFC to put on such a great card directly after UFC 100?

Neither was Forrest. Forrest's shoulder was as bad as Rua's knee. That makes them about even.

Lot's of people seem to overlook this...
