I am afraid for some forumers here..

if Forrest Griffin pulls off the upset against Shogun!! So many here(including me sometimes)think that Shogun is the best light heavy weight ever, and that he will never lose. I speculate that some here will commit suicide if Forrest pulls off the upset.

I *think* Shogun will win, but I ain't counting Forrest out either. He is training with Randy, and Forrest' striking has improved.

shogun is a better fight at this point. anyone can win on any given day in the ufc. shogun doesn't really match up 'amazing' w/ a guy like forrest, but he's still the obvious favourite, as he's considered the #1 LHW in the world by many.

Here's a fight where I want Shogun to win, but I won't be devastated if he doesn't, unlike if Cro Cop or Randy were to lose at this point. I like Forrest so it's almost a win-win situation. I do hope Shogun comes out like a vicious animal, though.

I like them both, don't get me wrong. I've always seen talent in Forest, but I think he's bitten off more than he can chew with Rua. I guess we'll have to wait a few more days to find out.

I'm going for Shogun, and I think he'll win, but I wouldn't exactly bet money on him at UFC 76 for sure.

Shogun is by far my favorite LHW fighter because he is just so exciting and active in a fight. However, I think without a doubt he was the best LHW in the Pride ring. I am not so sure he will be AS dominant inside the cage with different rules. He did rely a LOT of stomps and soccer kicks. In practically all his fights he was looking to score with those moves. It will be interesting to see his adaptation to the new rules.

PS. I know he fought under these rules in Pride US shows but even in those I dont think he looked AS dominant.

I don't think Forrest deserves to beat Shogun personally. He cries after losing, and his last fight wasn't impressive at all. I think Shogun will push the pace, resulting in Griffin going back to his brawler-style, and then he'll get clinched and KOed via knees to the face
