A healthy and focused Shogun would walk through Forrest, Shogun gassed badly in the first fight, it was his first fight under UFC rules and in a cage, and I am still blown away he was able to compete with a torn ACL that's a very serious knee injury and most guys can't even walk let alone fight. If Shogun comes out looking like he did against Chuck and Lyoto, I don't see where Forrest has any advantage.

For all the people making excuses for Shogun in the first fight, Forrest was injured going into the fight too and had to have surgery after the fight. Stop making excuses.

dude have you ever had a torn ACL, seriously? Most mortals cant even walk let alone compete against a top guy in the ******* UFC, what did Forrest have a cold or something. I respect Forrest but he is probably one of the most overrated fighters in the history of the sport, his skillset is very mediocre and his entire post TuF career has pretty much only been relevant because of that 1 win.

He had a severely injured shoulder that reqired surgery. Are you upset because he submitted your boy and you're digging for excuses? Well he's beaten Shogun, Rampage, Tito, Monson, Chael Sonnen and Travis Fulton so I would say he's not too overrated even though Fulton isn't that good. He beat Shogun, end of story.

everyone hates Tito or AJ for excuses but turns around and make excuses for their fav fighters. Shogun is one of my fav, Forrest beat him fair n square and until the loss in avenged you cant say Shogun would walk thru him. Same for you Big Nog fans, stop yapping about the Mir fight making excuses for fighters and then hate when fighters make excuses for themselves...

Are you mad because Griffin will never sniff the belt again and got humiliated by Anderson? See I can do that too. I'm not gonna argue the severity of his ashoulder injury because I don't know the details but an ACL tear 10-12 years ago was a death sentence to any athlete in any sport, even in 2009 most athletes are never the same after one. He beat Tito in 2009 by SD, a guy who hasnt fought in a year and a half and got chumped on by Machida. Chael Sonnen is mediocre at best and fights at 185. I thought Rampage won that fight with Forrest, Travis Fulton? seriously? I like Jeff Monson but hes hit or miss.


And to the guy above me, yeah we can say that actually that's the point of a forum, specualation,opinion,and discussion. As for the Nog-Mir fight, Mir looked good, it was the best Mir I've seen, and there's no way you can sit there and say that there wasn't something wrong with the Nog that fought Mir after seeing how he performed against Randy, it's like night and day, that's why people say it

all i hear is excuses, nobody fights at 100%, if your in such bad shape you might die or cant walk then dont fight and if you do fight dont you dare blame the injury, blame your own stupidity for entering the ring in such a condition.

Forrest actually does match up well against him. I think Shogun would win by either T/KO or decision.=

I agree that they shouldn't be fighting, I'm surprised they were even cleared medically to compete but "excuses" are part of every sport, welcome to the world of sports, I make excuses for every game the Philadelphia Eagles have ever lost. And for the record neither Shogun nor Nog made any excuses for their losses their fans did.
