Either a slug fest or a 3 round kicking clinic.

If Forrest avoids the clinch then hopefully he can take it.

forrest is a great fighter, anderson is an awesome one (even if he hasn't been finishing of late). it should make for a good fight, but i doubt forrest will win, i doubt he'll make it out of the 3rd round

This should be a good fight for the casual fan. Forest will push the action on Anderson resulting in a good slugfest. If Anderson gets him in the clinch...its over. I don't think that Forest can stand with Anderson.

I think its a conflict--- who is gonna win it and who I want to win it are gonna be diferent, LOL

One thing is for sure, Anderson is gonna have no choice but to engage, Forrest always comes to fight WIN or LOOSE--- reason why I think he is such a fan favorite.

He has the belt. He doesnt have to end the fight. In my opinion. If the challenger isnt coming to get my belt why should I go all out? I would do just enough to win. Unless the opponent was pushing hard. I mean come on Thales? Can you blame Anderson for just kicking him and getting aggravated? It is better for the fan to slug it out, better for the fighter to be ahead and not caught.

He has proved he can end a fight. I know he still can. As I said no one really pushed him yet. Forrest will and I see this fight ending in the third round, Spider.

Damn, I just visited www.ufc.com and Rogan is kind of making a fool out of himself in the hype videos there, I mean he knows what's going on as well as anybody, but he gets paid to hype the fights, and it's just too obvious.

Saying that Hendo is the only one to ever win a round against Anderson in the UFC (true so far) and that Forrest is bigger and stronger so he should be able to do that as well. Yeah because Forrest is at least as good a wrestler as Hendo, right?

Also that nobody believed Forrest would beat Shogun, yet he submitted him. Again true, but I the only thing Forrest had over Shogun was conditioning, Shogun gassed and then Forrest could do whatever he wanted to him. I doubt Anderson will come to the fight out of shape.

Damn Hendo would beat Forrest's ass so badly but not as badly as Silva will this will end in brutal murder **** fashion of the Franklin/Silva 1 variety.

It won't be as easy to clinch Forrest as Forrefst is a solid 6,3 which makes him taller than Silva.

I honestly need Forrest to win this one. If he somehow beats Andy then Forrest deserves some sort of medel imo. Hope he wins. Too many of my favourite fighters have been broken this year

Why Do We Fall?
