Forrest will have to get over 3 things this time. It wasn't a close fight at all. And he was ko'd for the first time probably. And he was beat at his own game, by striking. He will also realize the truth, he doesn't have much mma skill. Funny thing is how many Jardine post we will have now of how good he is and what a contender he is. Truth is he lost to Bonnar and allthough he is a much better fighter than Forrest I doubt he is championship material. He just fought a low skilled fighter in my opinion

Wait.. wait... WHAT!!!

He was winning the fight until the end. He was landing clean acurate punches and breaking Jardine down with leg kicks, where Jardine was supposed to have the advantage. The reason he was so frustrated is because he should've won that fight. He was the better fighter and he knows it. I don't like the guy that much, I think he's cocky sometimes and a little over the top. But he was clearly the superior fighter. He was PICKING JARDINE APART! If there was ever a rematch Forest would dominate Jardine. Jardine din't impress me at all.

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.
actually his skill has been getting progressively worse since that fight. I have watched all of his fights and he peaked right before the secound bonar fight. Since then hes been getting progressively worse. I think he did alright with the tito fight but I dont think tito is as good as people make him out to be either.

I mean his conditioning and physical performance is worlds better then what it used to be but he has lost alot of technical skill

Bing bam boom bang on the button man. I think he was looking to do the whole "I don't fight until I get hurt" thing and it bit him in the ass, you saw him smile just before he got knocked out and it gutted me to see him lose but he'll be back more determined. His bubble burst a little bit and there's nothing wrong with that, he will learn

Forrest is a good fighter, he just needs to get in touch with his inner badass. He needs to come back and destroy somebody and make people scared of him. IHe has to realize he can still entertain the fans while taking somebody's head off.

Just watched the fight again last night. Forrest was winning till the end so it kinda sucks, he just had too much confidence probably. Like it has been stated in this thread already, he will be back very hungry

Settle down, Randy says Forrest puts his work rate to shame. It wasn't lack of training he got caught, simple

Yeah he also said it seems that sometimes they'd have to kick him outta the gym, then afterwards Randy said he's probably heading to the gym right now Work ethic isn't an issue with Forrest, like TheGracieHunter said "He got caught, simple"
