Anderson Silva, king of the 185 pound division, moves up to 205 to face Forrest Griffin, a former light heavyweight champ.

This clip says it all -- Silva toyed with Griffin. An amazing example of world class athletic dominance -- reminds me of Usain Bolt at the Beijing Olympics.

Silva has no respect for Griffin's striking. Hands down, head movement only; it's an homage to Roy Jones Jr., who is in the audience. A casual right dismisses Griffin.

I think most of the credit for the dramatic finish goes to Griffin's incredibly poor strategy. It was not a secret going in that Silva was the more technical striker. Griffin had already been knocked down twice by this point in the fight and was far from 100%.
