I also hope that Silva kicks griffin's ass and especially liked when he was mouthing off one of Griffin's trainers who, as Silva rightfully claims, is a no one and therefore should show more humility than his big mouth can afford.

Not sure why you don't like Florian. The guy is a class act, and would be a great spokesman for MMA. I would like him to win, and he is definitely the harder worker of the two, but I am not sure that hard work will allow someone to beat someone of BJ's talent.

I like Forrest and Silva both, but I don't see Forrest beating AS.

I would like to see Griffin beat Silva, just because Silva's last couple of fights have been punishingly boring and stupid to watch. Granted, that's not entirely his fault, but I have a tremendous amount of respect for Griffin and I'd like to see him win, even though I think this fight belongs to Silva.

That pretty much sums up how I feel about the fight. Thanks for sparing me the typing time.

Weigh-in pics. BJ looks more cut than usual. Griffin's body is ridiculous, Silva looks a lot more natural than when he's at 185.

Actually, knowing the way things work, they will have a bunch of 5'5" kids. That's full grown adult height, not height at birth. Saw them tonight. Tried my hardest to pry some information out of him. I have clues, but nothing concrete. He had to sign an NDA. He says Kimbo is a super nice guy.

Dam BJ looks ripped. I hope he works Florian. That guy is just weird. And whoever said Florian works harder, that is just not true. It's true that BJ isn't always the most conditioned but he is one of the hardest working fighters out there. He concentrates on his craft and ignores conditioning sometimes but I think that has been changing in the past year.

The Griffin Silva fight is going to be the best I think. They are both just going to come at each other hard and throw down.. Griffin always puts on a good show and Silva isn't scared to brawl so we'll see.

I read a couple of pages to catch up and then saw the fight pics.

A. FG isn't a good enough fighter to make Silva "gas" and then hope to pummel him. Silva moves are well thought we all know this . He is the more conditioned , skillful, smater fighter odds are in his favor. However on the flip side emotion fuels forrest and he wants to put on a goof show so he should press the fight ( which will be fun for watching) and will be his demise.

B) KF looks to thin! He is suppose to pack a punch but I think BJ's Ground game will win this match.

C) I hope there are a lot of first round victories because some of the undercard fights are going to be good!

Same here Mauro. It does seem like they've been showing more & more of the undercards laterly instead of just empty banter and "interviews" between fights. I've always thought Florian looks a bit thin @ lw, but it hasn't seemed to affect him as of yet. That said, i think Penn is going to push him very hard in this fight. I give Penn the advantage in power on the feet, and an edge in grappling as well. I do think it's going to be a pretty amazing fight. Griffin is big enough and has the skill to push Silva, but i think he's going to end up getting ko'd. Whether by making a mistake or not, Silva just has serious accuracy with his striking and a variety or ways to hit you.

OK! I think I'll definately catch this at BUffalo billiards. Should I keep an eye out for anybody here there?
post #1451 of 5448
^^ i will probably be there unless my team mates go somewhere else.

I just watched all the weigh in's.

I am stoked for the thalies vs alesso I like both these guys but they always seem to swallow the stupid pill somewhere in the fight.

I think Kenny may give BJ a run for his money and I am 99.999999 % sure forrest is getting a straight up ol'fashion ass whuppin.
post #1452 of 5448
^ I won't be able to catch all the fights since I have somewhere to go around 11, but I'll keep an eye out.
post #1453 of 5448
Super excited for this one. Forrest looks hyped up. Hope he beats that ass. Well so much for that. AS is off fucking the chains.
post #1454 of 5448
embarassing for forrest. anderson silva looks a different class
post #1455 of 5448
