Former UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin sat down with Stephan Bonnar to give the challenger some advice on facing Anderson Silva at UFC 153 on Saturday in Brazil.
Griffin was knocked out by Silva at UFC 101 in 2009, so he knew what to tell Bonnar. Ready for this hilarious list:
- - Don’t stand with him
- Don’t try to punch him
- Don’t kick him
- Don’t try to submit him
- Don’t talk any trash
Basically, there is no way to approach Anderson Silva.
For the sake of UFC fans, hopefully Bonnar doesn’t believe that and will actually try some technique to beat the Brazilian.
Aside from the humorous aspect of the ad, Bonnar and Griffin getting together for a commercial is a pretty special occurrence. The two have fought twice, including an epic Fight of the Year battle in The Ultimate Fighter 1 Finale in 2005.
