I don't claim to know, but it does seem a bit weak to me to callout declining fighters on the verge of retiring.

Why not callout Chuck Liddell? Yeah, I'm sure a lot of ppl would want to fight him considering his chin isn't what it used to be. In some ways that would be the move of a coward?

I don't see that Forrest is too different.

It makes sense for Tito to have a last fight against Forrest. But, unless Bonnar is planning to retire or quit fighting it doesn't make much sense for him to fight Forrest when he could possibly fight someone in the top 10.
Chuck is retired, Forrest isn't. You don't see that as a difference?

And it's already been shown to you that Bonnar has asked for rampage, yet you're still harping on about it. I don't get it.

You are looking at it completely backwards. Why would Bonnar call out the dude he fought in what is widely considered the best UFC fight of all time? A dude who is about to retire so the chance will be gone? That makes no sense to you?

Have you ever heard anybody ask for Bonnar vs Chuck? Wheres the romance in that match-up? A completely pointless fight between two fighters with zero history.

Look at this thread. Barely alive and yet the support for Bonnar vs Griffin 3 is strong. The idea that they would do TUF is AWESOME.

You are gonna find yourself pretty alone on this topic my friend... having said that, with the kind of riff-raff that frequent this place, being alone can be kinda nice.

Bonnar vs Griffin III is a better fight than Tito vs Griffin. About their first fight, I think Bonnar won that one. I also think he could beat Griffin easily now. This is just my opinion.

There is some down right dumbness being posted in this thread.

If Stephan Bonnar's athleticism matched his heart he would be the undisputed HW/LHW champ.
