The good news is, if I die, this book will sell a lot more copies and be worth more.”

I don't care if Forrest is the underdog, I'm picking him to win! He's my hero!

Gotta love Forrest. This fight should be a war. I'm rooting for Griffin but picking Silva.

The olny way forrest wins is the takedown and GnP otherwise he will be picked apart kind of like the way leban was I think this fight won't make it out of the 2nd Anderson Silva 2nd Rd TKO

There is no way that Griffin will get picked apart the same way Leben did. Griffin is a much more technical striker and has way better movement. I think he'll beat Silva using his size and strength advantage. Griffin by either late TKO or decision from waring him down all fight long.

its a tough fight to call, in forrest's last few fights his hands and counter striking and footwork have been improving vastly.

his style now is somewhat similar to anderson's. its just that anderson is so much better at it and much faster with his kicks. I think anderson will have trouble fighting forrest on the feet.

the x factor in the fight is the workrate.

forrest has a workrate in his fights that is second to none in that weight class (which is unbelievable) and we have never seen silva with a workrate anywhere near that. Thales leites started making anderson work hard in on of the first few rounds of their fight and it looked like we might see the real cardio of silva, but leites stopped and started falling over.

if forrest griffin can put that work rate on silva early. and make silva wrestle with him for the first 2 rounds, he will win the fight by stoppage or decision. otherwise, silva will pick him apart and win by stoppage.

Silva's stand up is still way better than Forrest and doesnt matter how forrest fights him standing Anderson is on a whole nother level. Forrest hasn't fought anyone with the stand up game that Silva has hell Rampage doesn't have the overall stand up game Anderson does. and one more thing he is coming back from a LONG layoff and some fighters well most seem to lose that first fight back. and it just so happens Forrest first fight back is vs the P4P best in the world

Forrest Griffin taking down Anderson Silva? I doubt he can do it.

Hmm....Forrest doesn't have the wrestling to consistently put Anderson on his back, and he doesn't have the power to back him up on his feet.

I want to root for Forrest, but common sense assails my every thought.

Forrest just cracks me up. The guy is friggin hilarous. Definetally one of my favorites. Anderson may just kill him, but you know what. I don't care I'm still going to route (and pick Griffin on this site).

WAR FORREST GRIFFIN!!!
