Forrest Griffin to Fight Thiago Silva at UFC 101
After suffering a broken hand against Rashad Evans, Forrest Griffin was originally supposed to be out for the majority of 2009. Now, MMAJunkie is reporting that Griffin has agreed to fight Thiago Silva at UFC 101.
Both fighters are coming off of losses. Thiago Silva suffered a knock out loss to Lyoto Machida while Rashad Evans took Griffin’s belt at UFC 92.
UFC 101 is tentatively scheduled for Portland, Oregon and is already shaping up to be a fantastic card. Randy Couture vs Antonio Nogueira are also rumoured to be on this fight card.
