Forrest is one of my favorite fighters. I agree that he doesn't get the respect or hype as some other fighters which is a shame, but I think he is generally liked all around. I believe it's because he is far more humble and low key than a lot of others in the sport, but I respect him more because of that.

I have my ticket on the WARWAGON!

Favorite Fighters:

Randy Couture
Georges St-Pierre
Forrest Griffin
"The Irish Hand Grenade" Marcus Davis
Clay "The Carpenter" Guida
Michael "The Count" Bisping

I'm on board. I think he'll win via UD unless he deviates from his gameplan and gets to brawling with Rashad.

So... these are all the people who will be disappointed December 27th.

On the reals though. I love Forrest Griffin. He was my favorite fighter on TUF, and I always rooted for him. (I rooted for him when he fought Jardine even)

I'm not rooting against Forrest in this fight, I'm just rooting for Rashad.

All in all, it's going to be a great fight, and Forrest will do great I'm sure. He deserves the title because he earned it.

After saying all of that... Rashad is still going to win.

Griffin is a prime example of what a good set of balls can do for a man. Is he the most technically skilled fighter? No. Is he the fastest? No. Is he the strongest? No. But hes the ******* champ! Proof that a good work ethic and a set of balls will take you far in life. He clearly beat Rampage and I dont see what was so controversial about the decision. I hope Griffin hands Evans his first loss.

I started this warwagon a few months ago so of course I'm still on it. But considering I'm also on the Sugar express I'm conflicted on who to root for.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

To be honest, I don't know why but I'm really not that impressed by Forrest.

I know he's a great fighter and all but I have this bad habit of picking against him, except in the Shogun fight.. I actually thought he had a good chance to beat him in that fight.

I really thought Rampage would walk right through him but Forrest really surprised me there, I have to admit.

I want to see a rematch of Forrest vs Rampage because I really think Rampage is the better fighter.
