I want Forrest to win! He's a better overall guy and a better fighter! Kicked Tito's ass the last time they fought!

Forrest is a fake nice guy who's public perception is an asinine perversion of his true arrogant, snide and standoffish personality.

Even in times where he's fully demonstrated what a prick he is, people have in their minds that he's some funny guy and that they should like him for his sarcastic humour despite the fact that he's just generally a dick to people.


Not to mention, prime for prime, he's arguably the worst UFC LHW champion of all time....and I thought Rampage won that fight to begin with.

Tito in his prime was a much better fighter than Forrest.

I can't think of a single historically great LHW in his prime that I would take Forrest over in a hypothetical prime vs prime situation, hell, I'd probably even take the next rung guys like Vitor Belfort over him.

So do you know Forrest personally or something? Or is that just your perception of him from reading news stories and watching interviews(in other words public perception).

I hope Tito puts the smack down on Forrest! For some reason Forrest just rubs me the wrong way, and his view on fighting lately makes me want to see Tito do what Rashad and Shogun did to him. I think at this point Bonnar would beat Griffin.

No it's actually based on what people, who not only in the media, but people just around the fight scene in general say to him.

And it's not like these things are hidden...you can look up tons of audio and stuff of Forrest being an arrogant dickhead.

I think in one interview he said something along the lines of

"Man I do I fine, I got a nice house I got a big dick, etc, etc...then basically downplayed his losses like they were secondary because he was the shit".

While Tito may be a douchebag of giant proportions, I admire his passion, longevity, and his contributions to the sport as a whole.

Forrest seems like a nice enough guy but he's just awkward, inappropriate, and has a horrible sense of humor. I used to be a fan when he was beating Shogun and Rampage, but ever since Rashad/Anderson he's lost interest in the sport and clearly doesn't want to fight anymore.

I WANT Forrest to win simply because I've been on the Tito hate wagon since I was 16/17, but I think Tito will win simply because he wants to.

Forest barely fights, he doesn't seem motivated to improve his game, and his attitude towards himself is played out.

It's time for him to take a seat.

What did I tell you guys?! Forrest was too good for Tio! No way does a motivated Forrest lose to anybody not named Anderson Silva!

Forrest also proved everything Roflcopter said before the fight. He ran away because he didn't think he won the decision and had the president of the company chasing his ass down because of his piss poor attitude. Then he downplays it by trying to interview Tito when really he just adds more attention to himself, making him a gigantic dou*cheb*g.
