Quick post about the fight between Forrest Griffin and Anderson Silva. Though I didn’t get to see the whole thing, I saw clips of it. I think Silva sees the world in slow motion. Griffin got confused when he couldn’t land hits on Silva, just like I’ve seen several other fighters do. It’s a complete deer in the head lights look.
Not sure what happened when Griffin flopped on the ground and gave up at the end. There’s an unconfirmed rumor that he had a dislocated jaw and lost hearing in one ear from the injury. We’ll see. In any case, Griffin’s too much a straight ahead fighter, and I actually worry for his health, seeing how many hits he’s taken in his short career.
Machida vs. Silva at 205 lbs? Wow.
