Not to be an ass, but what sport are you referring too? Every sport on TV right now focuses more on the business than they do on the sport. Sorry, but this perfect MMA world we like to dream of doesn't exist in any profitable or long term venture anywhere.

Forrest Griffins fights and interviews in my opinion dont vary much from Rashad's

The worst looking Shogun ever and Rampage has always been inconsistent. I dont really doubt Forrest I just think Rashad has the tools to win the fight.

Of course Im pulling for Rashad and if it wasnt for the hate directed his way, I would generally have a lot more love for Forrest. If Rashad wins I would be one very happy camper, but I also think Forrest is a great champ and an awesome fighter.

Its one of those fights where really at the end of the day Ill be happy with either guy winning. I think Rashad will really show up for this fight and win or lose will gain a lot more respect then he had before.

I've always disliked Evans but think he will take the belt. I'm looking forward to a war!

Im rooting for Forrest, but i have this feeling that he's gonna sub Rashad

For some reason my belief is that Forrest is going to try and put Rashad on his back and sub him, that being a part of his gmaeplan

This is what I think. I can so totally see Forrest taking Rashad down. Subbing him? I don't see that, but I wouldn't be surprised.

I'm not counting Big Forrest out, but I think Rashad's going to TKO him.

Yeah, Rua wasn't in prime condition, but you make it sound like Rampage wasn't himself when he fought Forrest. Forrest beat Rampage at the top of his game, Rampage fought a great fight but was beaten. He hasn't been inconsistent in the UFC at all, so I'm not sure where you're coming from.

You're supporting Rashad just because many other people aren't?

It's going to be a great fight, but we've seen Forrest in every possible position. Forrest's chin leaves me skeptical of him, but I think he's a more complete fighter than Rashad overall.

Apparently you missed my sig.

Also I meant that I would be a lot more apt to give more credit to Forrest if their wasnt enough people already all over it and more people showing Rashad some love.

General Fanatical devotion and or hate can be a big turn off for me.
