What does to be Griffined mean?

Chris - yes, very funny.

Halb - I would imagine being parked on your arse by a jab?

Loved it! Good on Bonner for going along with this, Doubt whether it'll bring him any favour in the event though.

Re. this last weekend I think Travis Browne looks potentially very good but gets too nonchalant (cocky!) and tries things he shouldn't that are risky and beyond his repertoire. If he played to his strengths and had a good game plan he could go a long way. Bigfoot on the other hand stayed very calm and controlled.

Don't know how much the knee slowed hm and made him vulnerable to the closing shot, but it was an absolute beauty of a shot!

Oh, and what was the deal with all the black tank tape on Silva's shorts? Wrong sponsor?

As if we needed any more proof. It's like watching an action movie, you can't believe anyone could be so cocky. When you're that good though...

I feel for Bonnar, but given his record of taking punishment, that must have been some knee.

He wants to face small, old GSP, instead of large, young Bones. It's in his best interest for keeping his streak I suppose.

Never stopped, though hurt at times, by blows to the head but a clean shot to the stomach - esp. something as devastating as (that) a knee and anyone's vulnerable, how ever good their chin.

Having seen how he hones his reflexes with the ball throwing drills I'm not surprised Silva felt comfortable standing there. Yet he did take some clean shots and just took them so his whiskers must be good!

I'd rather see him v Jones than Mayweather Pacquiao. Please let it happen!

GSP is 31, 6 years younger than Silva! If GSP beats Condit (a very tough opponent IMO) I would definitely be interested in that fight.

Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen announced as the coaches on TUF 17 smile

Starts in January, and they'll be fighting in April.

Cue the Sonnen Smack-talk-o-matic and the Jones bible-thump-o-matic kicking into overdrive hehe

Time for Jones to get over his injury then. Anyone know how bad it was?
