Forrest Griffin was hand-picked by UFC brass to take on Anderson Silva at UFC 101 because he could provide the dominant Middleweight Champion a challenge with his hard-nosed, relentless attack.
...Ehh, not so fast.
Silva made an absolute mockery of Griffin, and he easily disposed of the light heavyweight fan favorite within the first round of action.
What makes the win so humiliating, though, is how Silva dismantled his foe.
Forrest quite literally could not touch Silva, and the Brazilian legend ducked, bobbed and weaved with some of the finest head movement ever seen inside the Octagon.
After Silva decided enough dodging was enough, he attacked with a ferocious, walloping, power-packing...falling away jab?
To this day, I am not sure how that punch sent Griffin down for the count, but when you make Forrest Griffin tap out to strikes and beg for mercy, you're doing something right.
