The UFC could come up with some sort of cruise ship/MMA event, and those two could be the main event. "Snooze on the cruise 2012", or something equally witty.

Seriously the guy is terrible. Funny but terrible.
your MMA knowledge is what's terrible.

How about kick him out of the UFC. He sucks as a fighter, he's a loose cannon and a liability for the UFC (see twitter **** comment), and worst of all, he has completely given up and is just showing up for his remaining paychecks, which, hopefully, should be limited to none.

I don't want to see him have any part in the UFC's future, but I suppose they'll continue to parrot on about his first fight with Stephan Bonnar despite the fact that his most memorable moment to most fans in the UFC isn't that fight but rather one of the most embarrassing beatdowns in UFC history, his 'fight' with Silva.

vBookie Record: 16-9

Forrest isn't that bad, he still has good leg kicks. He should just work tdd and get back to his leg kicking ways, it won him a championship. He's not as bad as you guys are making him out to be, his confidence got hurt in the Silva fight but he has a unique talent in his kicks and it's not like he's been fighting cans. Let him fight Davis, Gus, Rashad, Sonnen or whoever. I think he's got plenty of fight left in him, he just needs a solid win to get back to his old ways of training like a mofo. I think if he put his mind to it he could challenge anyone not in the top 5, obviously he's not a contender anymore but that's because he never evolved with the sport, same with Rampage.

His leg kicks aren't very good at all.

i dont get some of you guys. i dont care if i get neg repped, im annoyed. some of you act if the only fighters UFC caliber are Andy, JJ, GSP, and Aldo. Everyone else should just retire cuz "theyll never fight for the title again... never were that good to begin with". How bout this? some guys just are fun matchups. Fun interviews, fun hype, fun fights. Forrest is one of those guys. He gets KOd some times. But when he wins, some times its fuggin awesome. Membah when he choked Shogun? Membah that? Oh, wait, Shogun had bad knees. Membah when he beat Rampage? Oh wait, Rampage wasnt motivated. Thats not what you said at the moment. At that very moment when Forrest tapped shogun and jumped up, or when Forrest had the belt put around him, you said "hellz yeah, Forrest! you did it! the guy that went from nobody to somebody to champ right in front my very eyes!"

forrest is a scrappy guy that will fight anyone. he beat Rich Franklin. Imma go ahead and predict Rampage pulls out of his fight with Glover and its Glover vs Forrest.

If your prediction comes to fruition Forrest is gonna have a very, very short night. That chin isn't too sturdy anymore.

Dude it's not that Forrest isn't still good enough, it's that he doesn't appear to want it anymore, he doesn't talk like he wants to fight and he doesn't fight like he used to fight.

I get the feeling watching Forrest that he isn't as committed anymore and isn't interested in one more run at the belt.
This. It would be a fitting final fight for them both.

Let them go out the way they came in... swinging!

It would be fun but Bonnar is already 0-2 against Forrest. Forrest should just retire, he's got a lot of money and his heart isn't in it anymore.

I think Bonnar would win the 3rd fight.

I think so too, but it's hard to justify.

Then again, look at Chael V Bones.
