There are no train tracks in the forest.. And it's also a no fly zone.

Forrest will win this by submission in the later rounds or by decision in my opinion.

That judges thing he was talking about was ridiculous. Did he completely forget about Jardines fight with Liddell? It appears so.

Wow if anything after coming off wins against Shogun and Jackson I would be worried Forrest might take Rashad a little lightley...But I would hope Forrest knows better...but scared I think Winkeljohn is getting the Chuck Liddell head as well....lol

If Rashad wins...I might have to stop watching UFC. Someone needs to knock his silly ass out. Can't stand him...he needs to have his face disfigured!

Rashad is a pretty small light heavyweight; Forrest will definitely come into this larger, and with more reach.

This is a tough match-up to call, and anybody that thinks they can predict the outcome must not be paying attention to how chaotic this division is right now. I can see Forrest submitting Rashad, Rashad grinding out a win by lay'n'pray, Rashad knocking out Forrest, or either one winning questionable decision.

Personally, I think Jardine's KO over Forrest was a fluke. Jardine hits hard, but I don't think he hits as hard as Rampage. So I don't see Rashad knocking out Forrest. I also think the ground game would stall out, so I see this going to decision with Forrest winning. But again, this could be very very wrong.

Forrest on Rashad's Legs: Man I got weak skinny white legs. Sigh. I guess he's gonna break me off at the knees. Lol.

Forrest on Rashad as a running back: Thats cool. I suck at sports. I'm not athletic. I'm going to get my ass whooped.

Forrest on being afraid of Rashad: Damn right i'm scared. He just knocked out Chuck Liddell! I can't wait to get punched in the face by a punch like that. It'll be sweet.

Forrest on anything: Whatever.

Wow, I wish I could throw setup punches that make Ivan Drago's punches look like Mick's.

Look, Rashad threw everything he had into that punch. It was well set up with the left jab feint, and perfectly accurate. Lets not try and make it seem like Rashad is some KO artist. He is multiple KO's away from that.

Rashad has claimed in an interview that the punch he KO'd Chuck with was actually a set up for his left hook. Weither he was just trying to sound a little tougher or he was actually speaking the truth, i'm unsure.

Forrest will always be the underdog it seems. No matter who he faces, even as champion, no one has faith in him. Betting against Forrest has never shown to be the smartest choice. He has improved leaps and bounds since Jardine shitpumped him into lala land.

This last fight was one of the few fights were Rashad actually looked dangerous (The other being the Sean Salmon Kick) and I don't see any reason to suspect that Rashad is going to transform into a KO artist.

He's going to fight Forrest as he's fought almost everyone else. He's going to dance around, shot for multiple takedowns, and try and win a decision. That is Rashads style. I seriously hope he doesn't because I'm starting to like Rashad after the Chuck fight, but I'm not holding my breath.

I don't think you are going to see Rashad try and take down Forrest if they fight, he didn't try and take Chuck down once. Rashad has been working non stop on his stand up and you can tell by the last few fights he has had. IMO he will soon be one of the most dangerous fighters in the world if he is not considered so already. All he really needs is submissions actually the way he fights he may not even need that just sub defense.

I think Forrest takes this. He's better than Rashad in most places that count.
