This first video shows Anderson Silva at today’s open workout in Philadelphia, Pa. in preparation for his Aug. 8 light heavyweight battle against Forrest Griffin at UFC 101.

Forrest may not be as flashy or as light on his feet but he can get the job done. The question is will he be fast enough and strong enough to impose his will upon the pound for pound best?

In this next video, we see Anderson Silva sparring in preparation for Aug. 8. He also uses impact training where he allows himself to take punishment in order to toughen his face and skin. Forrest, who is a big light heavyweight is going to be a stern test for the middleweight moving up a weight class.
