Forrest isn't really a striker, he's only got one KO and two TKO's on his record, and that was against sub par competition. The guy doesn't have any real KO power against top level fighters. The only real threat he poses against Chuck is his vicious leg kicks, which are easily defended against.

The LHW division is so stacked right now, going through the opponents, everybody that's a medium to big name poses a huge threat to Chuck, except Forrest. Think about it. Yeah they could have Chuck fight Jardine again, but that's retarded, same with matching him up against up and comers like Jon Jones, useless. Coleman maybe, but he's already locked into the Tito fight, and they won;t match him up against Tito because that's also useless, he's already lost two to Chuck.
