Many would consider Kazuhiro Nakamura to br a solid fighter. This man has wins over Igor Vovchanchyn, Kevin Randleman, and Murilo Bustamante! So he is nothing to sneeze at. So yeah, he should get Forrest next!

And of course there is Tito Ortiz! YOu can argue he isn't an Elite fighter anymore but he is still a pretty solid fighter.

That's three solid fighters in a row that he has beaten in the UFC. That's a lot more then Chuck Liddell, Rashad Evans, Wanderlei Silva, and Keith Jardine combined.

Machida defeated Ortiz as well, ok boring fight but Ortiz was always in the mix for contender, Sok....as well, and he has a good Pride Record, also defeated a fat BJ Penn.
Rampage had a title shot on his 2nd UFC outing, Henderson s well so i cant see why Machida shouldnt get a chance.

Forrest and Lyoto are both smart fighters. They think up the best stratagy to beat their opponent. Forrest does it in a somewhat more aggresive way. While Lyoto picks his blows. It would be a technical fight. and if it were to go the ground it would be VERY interesting. Just not exciting. If Forrest got top mount, he could easily out wrestle Lyoto from there. But if he got mounted, Lyoto could do the same.

Chuck however has just about everything going for him. Try to be aggressive? Chuck will counter knock your face off. Try to take him down he will sprawl you then knock your face off. Get any where close to him, and he will knock your face off. Forrest would be in some trouble to beat him.
