Forrest is a tough(And charismatic) guy who throws wild haymakers. He's not exactly technical, but he's fun to watch. I don't get the "Forrest is a great fighter" comments though. I mean, he hasn't really proved he's great, and he would get destroyed by either Chuck or Vera(If he felt like moving down). Hell, I even think Rashad Evans would beat him.

With that said, I'm actually looking forward to Griffin vs Jardine. Moreso than Liddell vs Ortiz.

i think Forrest vs Babalu would have been a more exciting fight... Jardene is good.. but hes at the end of his carear.. meanin even if he beats forrest he doesnt have it in him to become champ and hold the belt for a while if it even went that way.. so i kinda figure it pointless to put Forrest up against Jardene

I don't see how it pointless for that fight?

Even if Jardine isnt going to be a contender long term, if Forrest can't even beat him, then he shouldn't be fighting Babalu. The Tito fight was alright I guess, but he just did enough not to get beat and never showed he was any sort of threat. Cote took Tito to a decision right? No one gives Cote any credit so I don't give Griffin any either

the equation to forrest:

crazyness + heart + fishing on lsd + very well rounded skills= forrest

I dont see why it would matter if Jardine is at the end of his carear. Forest hasnt done enough to fight Babalu. Plus i dont see how that fight would be better. What more can you ask for in this fight, they both are gona stand and bang. Babalu and Forest wouldnt be, Babalu take him down and sub. I personally am looking forward to this fight it should be one hell of a brawl

I think that Griffin is somewhat overrated. He is a good fighter, but not as good as some people are making him out to be.

I definitely think he is one of the most entertaining fighters in the UFC today and he seems to be able to withstand a ton of punishment. I can see him as the champion in the future.

Forrest Griffin = garbage fighter, i mean sure he'll beat the **** outta most of us, but skill wise/technicality horrible, only good that he has going for him is heart but that alone isn't going to make the best
