MMAMania.com talks with Griffin abot his UFC 101 bout with Silva

I'm just focused on dealing with this dude. I just want to show up prepared and actually fight the guy. I just don’t think anyone has actually tried to fight him up to their ability.

Irvin went in and charged him, Leben when in and charged him. He's a southpaw counter-striker … it’s not like I'm going to go jump his shit. If you rush into that guy you’re rushing into a knockout. So I'm going to fight the guy, I'll hit him, and not get too frustrated when I miss. Because he makes you miss and then he makes you pay for it.

He's made a lot of guys feel stupid. It’s when guys get hit, and then they can’t hit him back; they just look hopeless … like they almost want the fight to be over.

Brian Oswald (MMAmania.com): Anderson Silva is considered a lethal striker but can he really hit you any harder than Quinton Jackson and Rashad Evans already have?

Forrest Griffin: (Laughing) You know, a lot of guys have hit me real hard. The thing about Silva is that he's going to hit me a lot quicker. He's got a great reach, he actually has the same reach I do and I am not going to be much bigger.
