I only want Sonnen to win because of the potential matches that we could see down the line.

Sonnen Vs Evans
Sonnen Vs Machida
Sonnen Vs Bader
Sonnen Vs Hendo

I don't see him doing great at 205 but he might prove me wrong. I think his main level of opponents will be Brandon Vera and James Te Huna. He will dominate a few guys but when he steps up to even Bader's level I think his striking weaknesses will see him take some brutal knockouts.

Agreed, and I'm a former Griffin fan. I'm not the type to just fall off people's band wagons... but when you have a series of fights where all you do is slowly extend your fist towards your opponents face for three rounds apprently to show them your glove... it just really turns me away.

If the Forrest of 07-08 still existed, I'm all in... but I'm pretty sure he's gone forever.

Frankly, I'm probably going to pull for Sonnen here simply because I'd like to see a victor who will progress and create some more interesting fights.

Sweet, glad to see Sonnen is still motivated and looking for a challenge. That being said I can't see Forrest putting up much of a challenge.

Sonnen via 1st round TKO, followed by a swift sprint out of the arena from Forrest

Damn... not really interested in this matchup to be honest..

I would have liked to see Sonnen vs Rashad Evans that would have been a great matchup.

He may beat Forrest, but I highly highly doubt he has a bright future at 205.

If Griffin gets his head straight this will be a war that's talked about for years.
