    I was talking to a guy at work as we watched the Silva fight and he brought up some good things about forrest and his performance. It really seems like something was wrong and the possiblity that he threw the fight. I am not taking anything away from Silva but Forrest almost didnt even try to fight back and was not knocked out he just gave up. What do you guys think?

    i think you need to copy this thread, delete your OT account, never post here again, and paste this onto sherdog.

    lmao


    If by 'threw the fight' you mean that he realized that he was completely outmatched, was getting embarassed, and didn't have a chance to win, then yes he threw the fight.

    Watch it a couple times and look how forrest performed, for a top light heavy weight fighter its not out of the question. Me personally I just think something may have been wrong with him because for someone who has such great legs kicks he half assed all but 2

    they were feeling eachother out. that's why neither was committing to anything they threw. The fight started when Anderson caught the lazy leg kick and forrest realized he was about to get Irvin'd. Then Forrest went into Forrest mode, squared his shoulders, charged straight forward, and led chin first.

    There was nothing uncharacteristic about this fight. Forrest threw sloppy punches and Anderson threw very accurate punches straight down the middle.

    The only thing that was wrong with Forrest going into the fight was his ability to fight someone like Anderson.

    Right, I get you thats basically what I thought just someone brought up a few good points on how sloppy he was and how he gave up. Still awesome performance by Anderson.

    Straight from BJPenn.com

    I've started this post at least three times and I've had to start over because I've found myself getting SO ANGRY. So let's see if I can get through it this time. Oh and given this is my site it's my soap box to rant about anything I want, right?!

    After UFC101 I watched the post fight press conference and wanted to see what others were saying on Twitter about the event. Just to remind you of what happened, Anderson beat Forrest by Knock Out 3 minutes 23 seconds into the first round. Then immediately following the stoppage, Forrest essentially got up and ran out of the cage and into what I'd guess was his locker room. He didn't stay around for the final decision by the judges.

    Anyway, I was absolutely dumbfounded at what I read. Many people were saying he was hurt, potentially with a dislocated jaw. Some people even claimed he lost his hearing in one ear. Those people were 'fans' that read something on an Underground Forum. That's what happens with underground forums they're total random rumors people make up. Unconfirmed. Unfounded. They're just bored people who have nothing better to do than make shit up. Remember the Kimo story from a couple weeks ago? Insane.

    But that's not even what I'm upset about. Because you see those people gave justification to why Forrest ran out of the cage. He was hurt he needed medical attention. Which as it turns out is NOT ACCURATE.

    What really upsets me are those fair weathered fans that criticized and dogged Forrest for what he did. People berated him for his "lack of respect". Some people had the audacity to compare his behavior to what Brock Lesnar did (and has done multiple times). Really people? Because what Brock did was disrespectful to PAYING FANS by flipping us off. Never mind what he did to the biggest sponsor in the sport. And then some. Then some other redneck (see I'm getting angry again) compared what Forrest did to the LeBron James and Dwight Howard saga. Okay that's not comparing apples to apples or even fruit to fruit. One is a team sport, the other is not. Just for starters.

    What's so disheartening is a large majority of the world has no idea what Fighters do to get ready for fights. It's emotional. Very emotional. And if it's not then they're not really ready for the fight. People should have been saying "Wow Forrest Griffin has heart and was so upset with the loss he ran out of the cage. Poor guy." He lost to Anderson Silva. The best pound for pound fighter. The best. Losing to Anderson shouldn't move him in the rankings at all in my opinion. Forrest had nothing to lose but only something to gain. He didn't beat Anderson, so what? Neither have 25 or so other people that have been brave enough to step into the cage with him. And for those people that say it was rigged, please I beg you, go back to WWE. This sport doesn't want you. And for those other people that said this is Dana Whites fault for forcing Forrest to take this fight, you're a complete idiot. Do you really think Dana would do anything to devalue a great fighter like Forrest and match him up with Anderson if he didn't think he was capable? I would look at it as a compliment that Joe Silva thought Forrest was a good match up for Anderson. Even knowing the outcome I wouldn't think this was an easy match-up for Anderson. Many people picked Forrest to win. People (including Joe Silva) thought he had a shot.

    I guess I get so upset because I know first hand what these guys do during training. The only way I could know more so is if I were training for a fight personally. As most of my readers know my fiance is a fighter. Mind you he's not fighting for the UFC but serious fighters train for every fight as if they were stepping into the UFC Octagon. They take it seriously. This is their life (to quote Nate Quarry). These guys (and a few women) train their asses off. For months it's grueling trips to the gym. Sometimes three intense work outs a day for 6 days a week. And that one day a week they take "off" is probably just an easy work out day, you know your typical day at the gym if you're lucky enough to actually skip happy hour and make it to the gym. These guys cut anywhere from 20-35lbs (depending on weight class). They travel to remote gyms to train with different guys and to focus, leaving their families behind.

    What would you have said to Forrest if he were your buddy? Because what you write his actual friends and family read. Same goes for all other fighters out there.

    As this fantastic sport continues to grow and as the fans evolve, please keep in mind what goes into being a world class fighter before you trash talk, especially in public forums.

    Don't believe everything you read unless it's CONFIRMED by the fighter or his camp. If you're truly a fan, please do your part to educate those around you and help SUPPORT those that make this sport possible.
