Forrest Griffin VS Anderson Silva. That is going to be an awesome fight, I love Forrest but he very well may be in over his head. He needs to try to rough Silva up and push the pace if he wants to win. The problem with that is he very well may get knocked out. I'll buy UFC 101 for this fight alone.

Silva will kick his ass. This won't even be a contest.

I really like Griffin but there is no way he can take down Silva. Silva's strikes are too quick so they will keep him at bay. I will be getting this fight too.

Rashad was way too quick for Forrest, have a feeling Anderson will be too.

That is shaping up to be an awesome card, can't wait for Penn vs. Florian...been waiting on that fight for a while now.

Good fight maybe, but SUPER fight? nah. GSP vs. Silva would be a superfight.

I like Forest a lot. I think he's probably tough enough, but I'm not sure he's quick enough or has enough ground game to handle Silva.

I'm not sure who would be a better challenge for Anderson Silva right now though.

I don't think Griffin stands much of a chance either, but at least you know he'll actually fight Silva. That's more than Thales Leites did.

After the last fight, I may not buy another one. Complete waste of money.

Although, when and if Silva fights GSP, I'll probably break down and buy it.

I'm not sure who would be a better challenge for Anderson Silva right now though.

Rashad Evans or Rampage would be an interesting match with Silva. It's sad to see that he has to gain weight or ask someone to move down for him to have competition though.

Lesnar wouldn't stand a chance. He'd be submitted in rd 1.

I'm putting 2k on Forest.

As far as superfights go, if Fedor isn't fighting, it probably isn't one.

**** me, I miss Pride FC.

GSP vs. Anderson Silva is the one true Superfight in the UFC right now IMO.

Well, I'm sorry if it doesn't fit everyone's definition of superfight but it fits mine. Any time you put a huge fan favorite against someone who is supposed to be unbeatable it's a superfight IMHO. Forrest can win IF he can push the pace, and wear Silva out.

Forrest will get annihilated.

Probably, but if Silva fights the way he did against Cote, Forrest can win.

UFC had to change to wieght classes in order to gain acceptance from state athletic comissions here in the states. It was their only shot at survival.
