Re: UFC 101 (spoiler)
I didn't really know how to feel about the silva/griffin fight. no matter what you believe, it did "look" a little fake; the leg cocked up in the air thing. but that strike was not much different to the way, for instance, that fedor took out arlovski... as someone else said, using the aggressor's forward momentum, kinda like a head-on collision.
either way... silva looked awesome and griffin looked pretty ordinary.
bj... was awesome... he was taken apart by a bigger, stronger, gsp, but at lightweight, he's a monster. and it's pretty clear he took his training to another level. he was leaner, but bigger/thicker pretty much everywhere. he looks like a pretty BIG 155 right now and into the 4th round, he seemed to have the conditioning to back it up.
ditto, re: the heel strikes from the back... those legs really are like another pair of arms.
