Me too, but I think Tito's a little overmatched in that department. Forrest is much wittier than he is.

Oh yes, by far. Forrest has that dry sense of humor and fine turn of phrase.

I can't believe I am rooting for Ortiz but Forrest is douche of the year for his disgraceful treatment of fans and interviewers. Hearing that interview where a reporter doing his job was insulted by Forrest saying he had to run out of the ring because the reporter's mother was waiting to give him a BJ should have caused a suspension. Brock has been ridiculed but he answers questions and is treated much worse by the media than that tool.

This. Also, Lesnar ain't as bad too. Yeah, he had his outburst at UFC 100 but that wasn't anything personal with the fans. Yeah he had issues with Mir but Mir is a douche and Brock should have slapped that guy silly (the guy talks about breaking everyone's legs). He apologized for attacking the sponsors and it was obviously just his wrestling character shining through. It probably made him more valuable in the long run too. In other interviews, he is very conservative and no worse than his opponents.

Forrest, on the other hand, is a cry baby and a bitch for attacking the fans and reporters personally. We weren't the ones who phoned in a performance which fans paid good money to see. That performance was more embarrassing than Thales Leites falling on his back. Thank God Anderson Silva was there to shut him down since Forrest doesn't belong in the same building with top tier talent (for the record: Ortiz is not and never was a top tier talent so I am fine with the match being set up, just not as a ppv main event). Hell, I'd rather take Rogers/Fedor as a ppv main event (if it were) than this match. At least we'd get one top ten talent for our money.

Yeah, I actually just read his book Got Fight and didn't realise just how witty he was. The man is a comical genius. He somehow made a halirious book on the mental and physical aspects of fighting and made it all make sense and logical. I highly recommend it to anybody who hasn't read it yet.

I hope Forrest gets the win here, I really do. If I had it my way, I would want it to be doctor stoppage. Dunno, something about winning via doctor stoppage just seems so brutal to me. I think I even prefer that to a KO. The idea of being beaten up so badly that the DOCTOR has to come and call it quits for you just seems nasty.

That said, i reckon if Forrest is going to win, it'll be via uniamous decision. Tito's sub defence might be too strong. WAR FORREST

I keep wishing Forrest could increase his punching power.

He has that big reach. It would be great if there were heavier hands behind it.

Definitely. It would make him so much more dangerous. Especially since he like to stand up.
