I for one haven't lost ANY respect for the guy. He just took it pretty rough is all. Here is a guy who has litterally turned himself into a great fighter, he has improved tremendously over the last few years and he thought he had it in the bag.


It's easy for us to say "Oh he should've been sportsman like and hung around"

Whatever you bunch of tools...................

Forrest needs to address the media about this whole running out of the ring thing. He's lost a lot of respect with his fan base.

This does nothing to change the way I feel about Forest. He's still awesome.

Its pretty easy to say Forrest shouldn't have ran out of the octagon. Who knows how any of else would have reacted if we suffered a loss like that?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

This was just a loss.....sure he got K/O'd.....but that honestly is no reason to runaway, had he done that to Anderson and Anderson lost wouldn't have run away.....

Hell he bowed multiple times to Forrest and the crowd.........Dana and the UFC fans pushed the wrong buttons and Anderson showed us what he's got and he didn't come to play....

Had Anderson lost, I have confidence that

A. the crowd would want to hear from him(part of what they are paying for)

B. He wouldn't have run off regardless of pride, he would have shown respect and taken it like a man.....


Forrest acted probably to him in retrospect, like a baby.......

BABY.....I picked Forrest and def like him, but he employed a horrible game plan standing right in front of Anderson and I dont like people that run away.....

Someone let me know when it's my turn to judge Griffin. I can't wait.

Some people have said that Machida runs away for a living, even though I've liked him since his fight with BJ. You're playing very offensive/defensive here. chill out.

I still don't care that Forrest left. Better to leave than to do something stupid like lose his temper after the fight at Joe Rogan or something.

This loss was the epitome of devastating. He did what he felt he had to do, and I'd bet my paycheck that he didn't do it out of disrespect to Silva, and I'm sure Silva isn't mad in the least bit.
