Lets take a look at his last fights. Loss to Jardine(ko), Loss to tito, Decision over bonner twice. He hasn't shown real ability to end fights. His punches are all over the place he doesn't seem to be comfortable on the ground. He takes more damage than I ever seen. Why do people give Forrest so much credit? I mean come on, one more fight loss right now and he is probably gone.

People like his attitude and the ladies love the guy. He's a people's champ. I bet on Forrest to win that fight and lost some points. 50000 down the drain

Forrest trains real hard and i think that will make him better. When you fight his style of fight that is going to happen occasionally

Forrest is just an extremely likeable guy. Win or lose, he always gives it his all, and is charismatic. Forrest is also one of the better promo men in the UFC. All of these things make Forrest a fan favorite. I'm sure Forrest will come back better than ever. Dana won't make him rematch Tito just yet, and will make him fight a can, so he can get some more momentum on his side. I can see someone not liking Forrest though. He has a tendency to get really sloppy, but I've been watching some of his old & new fights, and I can see an improvement. He'll never be an elite fighter, but he'll always be someone the people can rally behind.

Every fight I have seen him in,he has been rather sloppy with his hands. He drops his hands allot leaving openings and someone other than Jeremy Horn finally caught him doing it. He just needs to balance his offense and defense out some,so he isn't all flailing punches when he does get rocked.

In a perfect world a loss helps everyone become a better fighter. He obviously has some work to do on his game but I don't think this was that big of a deal. He will be back stronger and better than ever.

Griffin is actually more technical than he was before so I don't know why people are calling him sloppy.

Of course he needs to improve, but he has made a huge transition from his first bout with Bonnar to his most recent fight.

The reason why he lost was because he decided to swing for the fences instead of backing down when he got rocked, that is a no-no.

Forrest will learn from this, and I think he'll fight a lot smarter, and stop trying to make every fight a fun standup war. I like that Forrest is trying to entertain the fans, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with fighting a smart fight. If that means boring a few fans, then so be it.
Smart post. Forrest learned how to entertain, he learned how to win, and now he's learned how to lose. What he needs to do now is learn how to kick some ass.
