I know he has skill but who has this guy beaten to warrant a title shot?
There's Sokoudjou! This was a man that Lil' Nog and Arona couldn't beat and they were top ten fighters. Hell, they didn't even put up much of a fight!
Many would consider Kazuhiro Nakamura to br a solid fighter. This man has wins over Igor Vovchanchyn, Kevin Randleman, and Murilo Bustamante! So he is nothing to sneeze at. So yeah, he should get Forrest next!
And of course there is Tito Ortiz! YOu can argue he isn't an Elite fighter anymore but he is still a pretty solid fighter.
That's three solid fighters in a row that he has beaten in the UFC. That's a lot more then Chuck Liddell, Rashad Evans, Wanderlei Silva, and Keith Jardine combined.
You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
