Also, he's not all THAT tough.. he has heart but his chin has crumbled badly against Jardine, Rashad and Horn. Silva has absolutely dismantled guys with far stronger chins, like Leben, Henderson and Franklin. If Silva turns the heat up, Forrest won't last a round. Forrest can bring it all he wants, he is not at Silva's level and Silva will either destroy him if he gets all aggressive, or scare him into another Cote fest. The only reason this match makes sense is because Forrest is such a fan favorite and this might excite the fans a bit.
Can we sig bet because your overconfidence the Forrest is nowhere near the top 5 is astounding. Say what you want about the Shogun fight but he beat Rampage too and clearly showed he was the superior striker to the current LHW champ. And you saying Cain and Vera are better than Forrest when they have done nothing to prove it is ridiculous. Forrest may not be top 3 idk all that stuff is debatable but he isn what you make him out to be...

You really wanna sig bet on a fight against a guy who hasn't so much as broken a sweat in 9 UFC fights, beating the previous record, is considered the #1 p4p fighter by many, and is more technically skilled in every area than Forrest? You're on. Forrest isn't half bad and has a chance, but this is still a horrible bet based on odds.

Yes I would like to sig bet but Ive never done one before so I just need you to tell me how to change mine if I lose. I really dont see any comparisons between Forrest and Leben because Forrest is a very technical striker with a good ground game and leben is a brawler with limited skills on the ground. Forrest is much better than James Irvin too so I just feel like you are comparing him to the wrong people and that is why you think this fight is such a no brainer. Dont get me wrong Silva is def the favorite because he is indeed best in the world and I feel he prob will win but I believe the chances of an upset are high enough for me to take a bet so...

Alright, it's on, we got a long wait. If you win, just PM me or resurrect this thread and tell me what you want in there... I won't put anything ridiculously nasty or expect the same of you, but anything else is fair game. If you lose, I'll let you know what you gotta put up, and you gotta click "User CP" on the top right corner (after logging in), then "Edit Signature" on the left. The sig goes until the next two PPVs after that good for ya?

You'd be that confident in Shogun beating Silva ?

This is an interesting fight. However, though I like Forrest, I'd be lying if I said I thought there was many ways for him to win this fight.

Of course anything can happen in MMA, but still. When I break this fight down in my head I just don't see any real way that Forrest can win.

- I don't think Forrest can KO Anderson.
- I don't think Forrest, whether on his back or on top, can sub Anderson.
- I don't even think Forrest can out-point Anderson.

All that being said, Forrest's work ethic is second to none. He is smart, focused, and determined, and those are great attributes to have.

In the end I see the fight as such:

- Anderson wins via KO/TKO if Forrest will engage, likely when Forrest goes for a leg kick. Anderson will catch it and put Forrest down.
- If Forrest won't engage, I see a decision win for Anderson. He's simply too fast and too accurate to out-point him, in my opinion.

Either way, I'm hella interested to see how the fight goes down.

Time to honor your sig bet sir.

I'd like you to put

"Forrest got heart but Silva got mad skill, and Liddellianenko called me on it. This sig is what I got to show for it "

Let's keep it up till the next PPV, thanks and pleasure doing business . No hard feeling either man, all good fun, I'm always up if you want to get back at me, just hit me up in some fight threads if we disagree and who knows.

Sorry mods for resurrecting the thread, but don't know if the guy knew how to check his Personal Messages.
