Interested in the highlights of the Anderson Silva vs Forrest Griffin fight? The answers are easy.
1. Silva dominating the ring. Silva controlled the ring, he made Griffin look off balance and awkward. Griffin was never able to get Silva into any position to deliver his famous leg kicks, like he used to destroy Rampage. Silva’s head movement and body movements along with his great jabs and devastating punches caused Griffin to constantly lots of poor shots and take too many chances that wound up costing him dearly.
2 Silva’s pounding Griffin on the ground. There was only one take down in the fight and Silva did it with a punch and followed it up with some devastating punches to Griffin’s head. I think these shots definitely hurt Griffin and that allowed the Flicking punch to finish him off.
3. The deadly Flicking punch. Only used effectively one other time in a World Championship match, by Ali vs Liston. Just as ridiculous and just as controversial. 40 years later people are still talking about the Ali flick and there are 1,000′s who believe Liston threw the fight. I am one of them. The same can almost be said about Griffin, I don’t think for a minute he threw the fight, but I do think he wanted it over. He was getting killed and wanted out. If his jaw was broken, as some claim, but not any doctors who attended him, then he has a great reason to lie there and quit. Otherwise, I would like to have seen him do a little bit more, before the flick. Not after. He was in not condition to continue for whatever reason after he was flicked.’
4. The Griffin run away. If Griffin would have run as fast in the ring as he did out of the ring he might have stood a better chance of beating Silva. Can’t wait until he finally tells everyone what was so important in the locker room that he could not’t wait to even shake hands or hear the decision. Might have been a call from Brock Lesnar telling all you great commenter’s how wrong you are in think that Silva is better than the Mighty Lesnar. Or perhaps it was a call from Fedor inviting Griffin to come to Strikeforce where there is no real competiton and no Brock.

Where do I watch UFC 101?
the Philippines, Solar Sports has been known to broadcast UFC fights LIVE but apparently, they’re not doing it anymore. Balls Channel will be broadcasting UFC 101 LIVE on Sunday, August 9 at 10:00 AM. Studio 23 will have a REPLAY at 10:30 PM. But our Sky Cable here don’t have that channel so I looked for sites that offer UFC 101 live streaming online free.
