And I couldn't stop laughing once Silva told Griffin to step it up. He kept playing around with Forrest until the knockout. Anderson is a beast, I really hope he's there to stay in the light heavyweight. I'd love to see him fight Machida, Evans, and Rampage.
Anderson Silva is a man that is very in touch with himself and doesn't worry about anyone else but what he is thinking and doing. The way he fought and beat Forrest Griffin, the former lightheavy weight champion just half a year ago or so, was probably the most dominant I've ever seen. The end of that fight, Silva acted like he just couldn't be beaten, with his hands down, moving easily out of the way of any attempt by Griffin and then knocking down Griffin and finishing the fight with a little punch. That punch looked nothing more than a closed fist bitch slap, just a little punch that was full of electricity or some sort of energy. He just hit him with a small punch and Griffin fell right to the floor. Just a showing of an individual that is inlike anyone else currently in the UFC and anyone ever actually.
Liddell, with the way he knocked out a few guys with little punches, is the only other comparison to Anderson Silva and it is only a slight comparison.
Anderson Silva could become the first man ever to hold two championships at the same time and should be given the opportunity to do so. Machida is his training teammate, so as long as Machida is lightheavy weight champion (which could be a long time) Silva won't be the champion, because he won't fight him
