The ideal would be them both retire with no more fights but if they both 'must' fight again then Griffin/Bonnar 3, to me, is the only fight to give them.

This. I would love to see Davis get a token "ex-champ" under his belt and some nice striking experience against a guy who isn't likely to knock him out.

I'd be interested in seeing that too.

So what ever happened to Rogerio? I wouldn't mind seeing him fight Forrest or Bonnar, would be cool to see Vlady V either of them.

Retirement would be his best option in my opinion. He can't hang with the guys towards the top of the division anymore and there is little point of him fighting lower-tier guys at this stage of his career.

So maybe Rashad/Machida
Forrest/Hendo
Forrest-Hendo would be fun.

I think Forrest could do without facing Hendo's right hand at this stage of his career/life.

He matches up well with Phil Davis... Forrest has a nice Ground game to counter his wrestling..Still think Phil wins though.

Bonnar v Forrest 3...I think this is a fight the fans would really like to see...Plus Bonnar earned it man


Forrest V Bader...I think Forrest would take a Split here...

Forrest V Gus...Gus by KO.....

BTW... He's not going to retire... He just started using TRT...

That's why it would be fun. If Hendo can plant that hand on Shogun, he sure as hell could do the same to Forrest.

I feel you think too highly of Forrest. Did you see his last fight with Tito? They both looked so old and the fight was so slow I was embarrassed for them.

I'm a big Forrest fan but I really don't have a keen interest in seeing him compete again. After his loss to Anderson I really started watching his technique. Same stuff I'm sure many people have noticed. He pushes his punches with terrible technique. He's effectively a brawler that doesn't have power. His ground game is solid but it doesn't align with his game plan. Sport has passed him by.
