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.....
sheesh, just wondering but did you have a traumatizing childhood where someone called you a baby for running away and now you hate it when other people do it? Get over it man. Forest did not run away from the fight. In fact, he was man enough to go toe-to-toe with silva, unlike leites. So basically you say he's a baby because he skipped out on the post fight interview. Explain to me how this makes him a baby? And don't say that fighting is about respect, sportsmanship etc. For some it is, for some it's not. Fighting is about who's abilities are superior.

I dont run away from anything!!!!!......Read my above post if your not able to understand A and B....then Im sorry......

He ran off after he lost to jardine and now he runs off after another loss, yeah I wanted to hear what he had to say, stand there like a man (like a Frank Mir) who's face was hamburger and give your thoughts to all the fans that support you......instead of running like a baby....

JMO....

I am BIG Forrest Fan and I do mean BIG, I wanted him to beat Anderson S and was hoping for it --- HOW EVER had he done that in boxing he would have been fined for it, I did not like him running out like that.

You are such a hypocrite. As if you
have faced every fear you've ever had like a man, handled all failures you've ever had like a man, owned up to every mistake you ever made like a man, or handled every disappointment you've ever faced like a man. Normally, those who are most critical of other people's mistakes or failures, are the ones most guilty of committing it themselves. (past or present) Sure, it was unfortunate that Forrest left so abruptly. I, too, was thinking what the heck is he doing. But, anyone with even a bit of compassion with see that Forrest is an emotional guy and trying to deal with the surge of disappointment the best way he knows how. So in the end, get over yourself. A man's character is not judge by how he acts in the midst of his failures, but it's how he comes back from it.

I think what most people are trying to say is that they have been greatly disappointed by Forrest running away after the fight, and not talking staying to talk to the fans, the people that make the sport. Remember everyone, you can have all the sponsors you want, but without fans, there is no sport. This forum is a testament to it. Ill draw another example too; one of my other sporting loves is Rugby, even greater then MMA. I hold a season ticket for Leinster RFC [European Champs!], when they perform badly, or lose a game, I am disappointed and UPSET. And if the coach or players were to avoid the press afterwards I would be seriously pissed off, but it wouldn't mean that my dedication or love for them would be any less.

Im not sure why you have selected me to attack with this nonsense since there are many that feel this way, but lets get this clear...

You dont know me son...at all, and you certainly are in no position to call me a hypocrite nor tell what I have or havent done.....

I have given my reasons if you dont like them thats fine....we'll just agree to leave this here.....

It's the same thing he did when he ran out of the ring after the Jardine fight. "I lost, I'm pissed and now I'm out of here." I don't see anything wrong with that.
