Forrest is a n00b..I remind me of Dajairo Matsui in Pride he gave a good show a lot of heart but not enough to be a contender

He sort of reminds me of Akira Shoji. Not really great, but he tries really hard. If you finish Forrest, then you've accompished something.

I'd have to disagree with that. I can't say Forest won that fight, but neither did Tito. Forest sure as hell didn't LOSE that fight. It was a clear draw in my eyes. Tito took round one 10-8 and forest took the next 2 10-9 IMO. Forest had some lazy shots but he also had a shitload of good shots. Tito's had very very few shots at all but you're right they did connect but he sure didn't connect enough to win either of the last 2 rounds. Forest hit him more even though he also missed more he still hit him more. There was no winner in this fight IMO.

Are you kidding? That fight was about as close as you can get to dead even, Tito came into the first round and did his usual GNP while Forrest just survived but then the 2nd round Tito did nothing, one shot here or there but Forrest was landing some pretty clean ones, some sloppy as well but Forrest definitley had round two, the third round was about even...each fighter getting something in but not doing a whole lot.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

"great personality and that all amercan image"

That's all you need in the UFC...it'll get you the decision or soft stepping stone fights with lesser/green or way past their prime opponents. As long as you appeal to the UFC's biggest demographic (american males between the age of 19-30) you're set !

Hmmmm, what third round did you watch? That takedown by Tito sealed the deal. Forrest's strikes didn't do as much damage as Tito's, and the commentators hyped up those wild strikes as difference makers. Really, Tito was outstriking Forrest, and was able to score that takedown in the third to win.

Wow, one takedown and that sealed the deal, wow, I did'nt know that's what it took to win a decision...just 1 takedown...hmmm...well IMO I just did not see anyone being dominated in that fight, both fighters had their moments but to say Tito won that clearly is nothing short of absurd. I like Tito's fight style but it just was'nt their that night other than the first round???? hmmmm

Round 1- Tito 10-8
Round 2- Forrest 10-9
Round 3- Either Tito 10-9 or 10-10...either way Tito won the fight without a doubt IMO. Damon's right the announcers were overhyping Griffins's strikes.

If Tito brought his "A" game the commentors would have been hyping up Tito's GNP as they have in other fights when he's clearly dominated, IMO they were "hyping up" Forrest because Tito simply could not dominate and put Forrest away. In which case Forrest deserved to be hyped up, he stood toe to toe with Tito and gave it a great shot, IMO a very very close fight...

He gave it a great shot but his striking wasnt nearly as effective as the announcers made it look. I've watched the fight a number of times and the second round was actually pretty close and IMO Forrest barely won that round. Round three the stand up was about even and the takedown just pushed Tito ove the top. A takedown is not all you need to win a decision but whenever its dead even and someone gets a takedown and nothing happens after that its obviously gonna go to the guy with the takedown.
