Chael Sonnen vs. Forrest Griffin

Long before either man competed in the UFCc Octagon, Chael Sonnen and Forrest Griffin fought each other in the opening round of the IFC: Global Domination light heavyweight tournament. Fighting a class above his usual middleweight division, Chael was unable to contend with the strength and the ground game of Griffin. If MMA math means anything, Griffin was beaten handily by Anderson Silva, who will defend his title against Sonnen at UFC 17 August 7.
