  • What the **** happened in the Griffin-Silva fight?

    I've seen Forrest get hit a lot harder than he appeared to get hit by Silva (any of the times) and shake it off. Plus I have NEVER seen him just give up the way he did. He was NOT unconscious by any stretch. He asked for the fight to be stopped, and the ref obliged. Then he runs out of the ring before the announcement?

    WTF?

    Probably needed to take a leak.

      He was probably embarrassed that people pat $60 to watch his ass get whipped. Which is the big reason I don't watch much UFC, just the taped stuff on Spike.

      ACK!

        I had hopes it would be a good fight.

        Also, it's FAR better than boxing. And who the **** pays 60$? I either watch it for free the next day or pay a 5$ cover and watch it at a bar live.

          Where is it free the next day?

          I don't go to bars, so the $5 cover is out.

          ACK!

              Hate watching stuff on a monitor.

              MMA is not FAR better than boxing, FAR different, yes. Better? No.

              ACK!

                Boxing = 10 rounds of guys giving each other love taps on the chin, mixed with 90% clinch that is just an excuse to take a breather.

                  I heard it was something with his jaw, it got broken or dislocated, and his hearing was shot. It was just great. This and BJ's finish made the event for me, but Amir's "loss" was just stupid.

                  Great sport. We get the events free here on cable, but it's on at 4am.

                    Yeah, dislocated jaw. And yes, that would mess with his hearing. But this is ****ing forrest griffin, dude. He's usually tenacious as ****.

                      Forrest should just not have been standing up with Anderson at all.

                          MMA= 3 rounds of guys in spandex underwear trying to "mount" the other and make him cry uncle.

                            There's a technical aspect to grappling. None to boxing "clinch"

                              I agree, and clinches really suck, but if you get 2 guys that don't clinch a lot, and you have a far better fight. That is why I never watch heavyweight fighters, mostly clinches.

                              I'm actually watching MMA on Versus at the moment.
