I choose Griffin too, that was Shogun's arrival party and it went to shit... Shogun minced him in the rematch.
The Machida saga is obviously massive, but I knew Shogun won the first fight and was quite confident he'd win the second... he smashed Lyoto too.
The Griffin fight was always the haters' go-to, and funnily enough, that rematch is rarely mentioned. Nasty knockout.
It probably isn't mentioned because Forrest fell apart after he lost the title and looked awful. I also thought it was weird timing for the fight.
