    Just wonder if he has seen any of Silva's fights before. What was he honestly thinking? He got knocked out by Jardine. Silva looked alot bigger than Griffen 2. Dude was fucking huge.

    I was wondering myself. I thought he'd at least get in a body clinch and try to press him up against the fence or something. Instead he threw some horrible fucking shots (chin out and he was even leaning forward) and got countered away by one of those most dangerous strikers in the sport.

    He didnt even go for a single take down, he threw a few lack luster kicks and some stupid punches. What does he expect to happen? Leave your chin out throw a wild punch get caught, thats how it works, he had to realize that, and thats probably why he ran from the cage.

    And now its popping up all over, he couldnt hear out of one ear and the first punch that dropped him dislocated his jaw.

    Right as saw I Silva toe to toe with Forrest and how much bigger he was i was taking bets all over the place. I cant get over how big he was.

    Why would you think he has an advantage on the ground? Griffins BJJ didnt look very good against Evans or Jardine.

    Use his suppose weight advantage, hold him down and maybe land some GnP? I thought for sure he would not stand and try and box with Silva.

    Standing up or going for the takedown, we would have seen the same result, Griffin knocked senseless.

    No matter what Griffin did, he didn't have the skills or tools to beat beat Forrest.

    Forrest got KO'd standing with Silva
    Forrest had no hope of going in for a shot
    Forrest probably would have gotten Rich Franklin'd in the clinch

    What could he have done to win?

    why did griffin stand and fight? because thats what Dana White pays him for. Thats why he got to fight the best fighter in the UFC, because he stands and fights. Every winner loses eventually (except you-know-who) but if you get in good with Dana the way Forrest has, your career is gonna be gravy.

    That makes sense, but I'm sure Griffin has seen the replys of his Jardine/Evan fights and didnt want to go for the trifecta.

    He might have been hoping to push the pace enough to get Silva into a wild brawl like Griffin usually does. Then just really underestimated how good Silva's stand up really is.
