Will this loss make Forrest a better fighter?

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

Forrest has already shown that he has improved since the Bonnar(First one) fight. He was doing good, until he got caught. Jardine didn't let up either, and took advantage of his opening by basically putting Forrest's head through the Octagon floor. 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.

It may. Most fighters after losing a fight like to train harder so they dont loose again. But you should always train your hardest and never underestimate your aponet. A clean record is a good record. But sure I think hes gunna try to step up his game so he dosnt loose again.

According to what everyone says about Forrest he couldn't train any harder, he may learn to not just bang but, I thought he was fighting a pretty smart fight till he got beat. It's a fight that stuff happens. I also think Forrest is destined to be one of those guys who is at the top of the food chain, just not at the very top.

I don't think Forrest can recover from this loss. I think Forrest and all his fans thought he was better than what he is. He was able to get over the loss from tito because it was a close fight and it was a decision. Jardine beat Forrest at his own game.

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

i think a point to note from forrest's exit is just how much it REALLY means to him. He plays cool guy, but underneath he is desperate to be at the top ....it shows he is human. He will be back, losses happen to the best. He has areas of improvement to look at and should note that every fight wont be a standup affair either.

Forrest was KO'd by of all people Jeremy Horn.

You're acting like Keith Jardine is this unknown bum, who doesn't have any skill. That couldn't be any further from the truth. Jardine's a gamer, and is tough as all hell. Throw in the fact that he trains with a great camp, and is skilled, and you have a dangerous opponent.

Jardine lost a screwy decision to Bonnar.

Forrest showed some improved skill, but got caught, it happens. Jardine took full advantage of it, and hammered Forrest's head into oblivion. Forrest has skill, it's just that sometimes he wants to give the fans another Bonnar vs Griffin 1, and you really can't do that all the time.

I hope this experience makes him a better fighter. When Jardine caught him Forrest just started swinging wildly when he probably should have tried for a clinch so he had time to recover. also Forrest should have held onto Jardine in the Guard, but he let Jardine go free and smash him. so there are a few things Forrest could work on to make him even better.

This is probably making him question himself now so hopefully he steps it up because with how good he did against Tito he definetly has a chance at becoming Champ someday. Not until Chuck Retires and Tito's Champ though, as long as Chucks Champ Forrest won't ever be but when Liddel Retires I think Tito will be champ. But that all depends on how Rampage does in the UFC.

It will for sure. Forrest won't want to go out like that again. I'm pretty damn sure he trained harder for Tito than he did for Jardine. Losses make fighters better and work harder
