It's a lot of pressure and I'm not surprised he seems a bit off, a bit irritated, trying to keep the funny and a good attitude but struggling.

I'd be a bit off and pissed too if I was doing an interview for "fans" that have been making fun of me for a while too.

If anything, I think he's doing very well since he didn't tell everyone to go **** themselves for being such douches when he wasn't doing well.
Quoted for truth. The cheap shots people are taking at him are beyond old now.

Was sort of a weird interview. Personally, I don't think he should feel too bad about that fight. He fought a guy that made Rich Franklin and Nate Marquardt look bad.

Anyways, I'm happy to see Forrest again and I hope he does fight Ace next!

Man.. I really don't think he likes himself at this point. I mean, for one, that was a sick burn by the reporter. But seriously, he has nothing to say about his loss, it was just that bad I guess.

Hell, I don't blame him. What would I say different?

It's not really a cheap shot even when the guy is continuing to add onto the criticism he's taking with more shit.

Don't really get why people will continue to defend this guy to the death because of his goofy "normal guy" attitude that's earned him praise and fortune throughout his entire career. It's time to let go.

He looked really edgy. Not there to know for sure but I kinda got the vibe he coulda went off on the reporter at any second. Crazy...handle with care.

I like Forrest though

Uhh, he's not adding anything? He's doing an interview and answering questions the way he knows how.

People aren't defending him because of his attitude, people are defending him because he's a normal guy who took a very hard loss and caught nothing but shit, and is STILL catching shit. Enough is enough.

I always felt Forrest was overrated and still do, but now I just feel plain bad for the guy after that interview. I hope he learns from the loss and comes back stronger. Shit happens, everyone loses. It's not what happens to you that makes you who you are, it's how you learn from it.

It's been a while since the fight and he's gotten married....was hoping to see him in better spirits but he was acting like a tool. No idea why he did an interview because he avoided pretty much every single question with an akward comment.
