    Biggest fight in MMA history signed

    UFC 101 - from Philadelphia, PA

    Main Event:
    Middleweight champion, and widely regarded as the best P4P MMA fighter in the world, Anderson "The Spider" Silva
    vs
    Former Lightheavyweight Champion, 1st ever TUF winner, and UFC posterboy (ie new game) Forrest Griffin


    Add to that match, the co-main event. Lightweight title match between BJ Penn & Kenny Florian. Easily the best card of 2009

    Should be an interesting fight between Griffin and Silva. I guess Silva has no competition left in middleweight to make an intriguing matchup.

    I think they will be fighting at 205. Dana White was on the Opie and Anthony Show right after the last UFC and said He will move Sylva up to 205 for better competition.

    That would be tough for many guys, but I think Silva can do it.

    Funny he ran everyone out of 185. Will everyone have to move up to heavyweight to avoid him now?:)

    That is going to be ugly for Forrest. He isnt exactally known for his defense.
