Show him the money: Forrest Griffin open to Wanderlei Silva fight
(mmamania.com)
“I think Wanderlei is a bad man and Wanderlei will get [Rampage Jackson at UFC 92]. I’m not great at calling fights but that’s my honest opinion…. He’s a good training partner and we’re becoming better friends because his English is geting better. I’ve got nothing bad to say about Wanderlei. He will never get tired of punching you. There’s just no break in him. I think of myself as someone who’s willing to do as much as anyone, but he’s the one guy who might do more. That’s a bad dude. He’s hard to put out. If he was a video game, he’d have no life bar. You’ve got a life bar that goes down but his life bar doesn’t go down. That’s why I like watching him fight…. It would be great. If it’s for the right money or a belt, I’ll fight anyone.”

10 Tough Debuts
(sherdog.com)
1. Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir (UFC 81, 2/2/08) So it’s a bit of a cheat -- Lesnar’s first pro MMA bout came against Min Soo Kim in 2007. But I argue that if your opponent doesn’t punch you back, it’s not much of a fight. Lesnar’s real test came against Mir in his UFC debut, a fight that organizers seemed to concoct with the intention of giving Lesnar the most difficult road possible. Where Lesnar is at his most formidable and comfortable -- providing offense on top -- is where Mir is most dangerous, a fact he proved less than a couple of minutes in with a heel hook. That Lesnar was able to rebound speaks to his confidence as an athlete, and the fact that he didn’t enter the sport for the quick payday. While I generally yawn at rematches, this is one that would likely provide contrast between first-fight jitters and the cage calm that comes with experience. Mir subed Brock with a heel hook apparently, i swear i thought it was a kneebar, oh well its from sherdog it must be right
