    Dana White told Kevin Iole today that they had made a deal for Forrest Griffin vs. Anderson Silva on 8/8 in Philadelphia.

    dude keeps getting injured. Now he's dropping to 170

    for some reason I wouldnt be that shocked. Forrest seems to be pretty damn durable when not on his back.

    FTW if this is true... No matter how elusive Anderson can try to be, a fight will break out with Forest in the ring.

    Forrest is very sloppy with his hands though and if he doesn't tighten up that area before this fight it's gonna be however many rounds it is of Anderson kicking his ass all over the cage. Forrests ground game isn't up there with Andersons and his standup isn't even close. At least Griffin won't be a fucking pussy about engaging though. He smiles when he eats big punches :rofl:.

    I wouldn't be surprised if forest won by unam decision but not because hes tough, but because he's good at eeking out decision wins and I wouldn't be surprised if anderson let it happen; similar to Rampage v. Forrest minus the hurt knee.

    But i think (?) we all know that if Anderson came out aggressive and Forrest did anything other than avoid anderson then the fight would be over by the first round.

    Neversaid Forrest had a chance, but still will be entertaining.

    If Forrest stands, he will probably get KO'ed; if he takes Anderson down, I picture a nasty triangle or armbar from guard. Either way, it will be entertaining and Forrest will run crying and screaming out of the arena like he did in the Jardine loss.

    plus he pretty much is only on his back when he has been dropped.
    Im going with Forrest on this one.
    This would be a good fight to bet on.
