Facts about Griffin vs Silva.

http://latestsportsgossip.blogspot.c...s-forrest.html

These are some interesting facts that help outline the dominance of Anderson Silva in the Forrest Griffin fight:

* Silva landed 13 of 25 total strikes, for an accuracy percentage of 52%. That is his lowest hit rate since coming to the UFC and the third lowest of his career. He landed 51% against Ryo Chonan and 50% in his first pro fight against Luiz Azeredo. Silva has still never had a fight in which he landed less than half his attempted strikes.

* If you want to consider Silva's head movement, consider that Griffin landed 1 of 35 strikes thrown to Silva's head, or 3%. The average is 29%.

* With his three knockdowns against Griffin, Silva becomes the only fighter in UFC history with two fights containing three knockdowns. He also did it in the second fight against Rich Franklin.

* The three knockdowns also moves Silva into second place for most knockdowns in UFC history, behind only Chuck Liddell.


Also check out Silva's boxing skills, one of the reasons he dominates as a striker.
