Well DW has expressed his undying love for them and the fact that he would always take care of them. I really wouldn't be surprised if this comes true on FX or Fuel.

Rather see Bonnar vs Rampage.

Oh, wait. Bonnar is too much of a chicken for that.

I'm not even interested in seeing Forest fight. He's obviously lost any passion he has for the sport whilst Bonnar still loves it.

But, it's a good name for Bonnar and he deserves it so why not.

I can't even begin to comprehend how you could call someone like Bonnar a chicken.

Bonnar talks tough to Griffin who looks like he's on his last legs and avoids fighters like Rampage who Bonnar's had issues with in the past.

Bonnar doesn't say anything to anyone he knows would whoop his ass.

Maybe, that makes him a coward and a chicken? I don't really know.

He said he'd like to fight Griffin again and that's it. It was literally 10 seconds of talking. There was zero toughness involved.

I just think it's funny you call him a chicken. I don't know anyone who would even get into the octagon with guys like Sozynski, Kingsbury, or Jones.

Believe me Bonnar is not a chicken, he is a true fighter who comes to fight. He doesnt call out any fighter because he is smart and uses his intelligence for potential opponents.
Griffin is still a very good fighter and can still beat top fighters like we saw against Franklin.
Put yourself in Bonnar's shoes and surely you would want to fight Forest again, Like Maynard wants Edgar and Hughes would want Dennis Hallman.

The times have changed and Bonnar has shown he has evolved with modern MMA. This would be the best chance for Bonnar to beat Forest. It would also make a great main event for a Fight Night card.

Franklin,Gouveia,Maia,Kharitonov,Hunt,Liddell,Pari syan,Hardy,Shlemenko,Machida,Gomi,Bustamante,Evans ,Edgar,Hathaway,Bonnar,Murray,S.Carter,Ludwig,Pett is,K.Gill,Sobral,Mousasi,D.Cruz,Arona,Nogueiras,Co te,Ole Laursen,Kawajiri,Sakuraba & K1 Lebanner!

Griffin and Bonnar started their careers together, making a huge impact on the UFC why. Why not have Griffin end his career against the same person? Has nothing to do with toughness, infact I promise you it had everything to do with respect and nostalgia.

I wouldn't bet on Rampage to whoop anyone's ass anymore. Id pick Bonnar over him at this point.

Attero Dominatus.

I'll try to hunt down the quote but I'm 99% sure Bonnar did call Rampage out about a year ago.

Also I think he'd beat Rampage.

Also Griffin Bonnar TUF would be amazing. I haven't really enjoyed a TUF season since season 9.
