Antonio Silva defeated Fedor Emelianenko by TKO (doctor stoppage) after Round 2 in the quarterfinals of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix
Is there any comparison between Strikeforce and Ultimate Fighting Championship that is commonly known as UFC.

UFC that was started long ago has received far more exposure than Strikeforce that is still in its infancy. Today was a big day for Strikeforce as its best fighter Fedor Emelianenko was beaten in the fight by Antonio Silva after the second round.
The fight comes merely a few days after the successful conclusion of another great MMA occasion UFC 26. Here is a report on that.
Forrest Griffin will be the first to admit that his performance against Rich Franklin was not very Forrest-esque. The effort was certainly there. The intensity was certainly there. Yet, it seemed a bit difficult for him to both pull the trigger and, when he was able to pull the trigger, find his mark.

That is what a 441-day layoff will do to most mortal men.

After putting up back-to-back losses followed by a razor-thin split decision win over Tito Ortiz, Griffin had to wonder where he stood in the division he once ruled. The win over Franklin answered that question with an exclamation point.

I completely agree with UFC color commentator Joe Rogan that Franklin is a more effective fighter at 205 pounds than 185 pounds, despite the fact that “Ace” is a former champion at the lighter weight. A win over this guy catapults anyone to the top of the division. Not to mention a win by a former champion.

Griffin now sits in prime position for another marquee matchup in his next bout. Whether he wins or loses on March 19, Shogun is a logical next opponent. Griffin spoiled the UFC debut of the reigning champion, battering him from pillar to post in their 2007 matchup before bringing the bout to an end with 15 seconds on the clock courtesy of a rear naked choke.

Rashad Evans and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson also have history with Griffin. A bout with either of those former champions would be a box office hit, as well as a nice way to determine the next in line for the winner of Shogun-Jones. Assuming that up-and-comer Phil Davis is successful against Matt Hamill on April 30, he is another intriguing opponent for Griffin. Even a rubber match with Ortiz, assuming “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” survives Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, which is no safe assumption, would be a fun fight that makes a lot of sense, since the pair traded split decision wins.

In other words, the UFC has a lot of options on what to do with Griffin. Whatever UFC President Dana White and matchmaker extraordinaire Joe Silva decide to do next, it is clear that Griffin is now firmly back in the 205-pound mix.
