Forrest vs. Machida would look like Anderson vs. Forrest!
There is no way in hell Forrest could take Lyoto down. He would have to strike with one of the best in the business which is sad news.
In your World maybe, yes^^
If you fight a guy like MAchida it does!
Otherwise you just sign your defeat paper right away..
There's really no point in debating with you about this fight, is there? Looks like you've got your mind made up and no one but you is right?
Forrest would be an ideal replacement IMO. He's a regular training partner of Couture, is always in shape and has a massive gas tank. I probably wouldn't pick him to win but Forrest would certainly present challenges to Machida (size advantage, top control) and could probably beat him if he was game.
