Bonnar did not beat Jardine and everyone who watched the fight knows it. It was a judges decision and the ufc protecting what they thought was a marketable prospect. As for the Tito and Forrest fight he lost and he admitted it to the whole world and for people to come on here every day and say how he won is just riduculous and shows peoples lack of knowledge of the fight game. Everyone knew if it came down to the judges and Tito won it wasn't going to be a popular decision based on Forrests popularity with the people. When a fighter says he lost a fight it should be final and it just shows complete homerism on the parts of the people who can't except it. So to answer the question, NO the ufc is not to hard on him and infact they are probally to good to him. His skills are not as good as most fighters but he is an exciting open style fighter with an ability to take a shit kicking and that sells so he keeps getting chances and pay days which in all likelyhood will end sooner then later once he keeps getting exposed for the 2nd rate fighter he is.

As long as a fighter fills the seats, and Forest certainly does, he will get fights, and decent money, regardless of how good he is or his record. Of course people tend to lose interest, even in their favorite fighter, if he starts to lose a lot. Unfortunatly Forest isn't as good as his popularity would suggest, which means he is in for a lot of tough fights.

It's not that they are too hard on him, it's that they are ****ing pussies with every good/known UFC fighter. Every fight a good UFC fighter has SHOULD be against someone of equal or close calibur




What a stud

My main problem with Forrest is that he wants to brawl in every damn fight. The guy has a good ground game, and yet he hardly ever uses it. When was the last time he tried to sub someone, the Mahood fight?

Besides the Mahood fight, Forrest hasn't gotten any easy fights.

Haha, yeah, I take that back. He hasn't received much from the UFC, I should clarify. He makes a good amount from sponsorship, though.

Forrest shouldn't be fighting cans. Because if he did, then people would still hype him as some great fighter. Forrest is just a brawler who would get picked apart by any techinal striker, or get subbed on the ground by any good grappler. Even though I like the guy, he is a B Level fighter. If he fights Tito and then loses, he will probably be given a can, then another hard fight, lose that and so on till his contract is up.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

Thank you. Forest looked very sloppy against Tito. `The only reason Tito didnt put him away was b/c of ring rust. Forest has averge (at best) hand speed and swings wide. Jardine dominated him and his scond fight with Bonnar was a snore fest. I dont EVER see him being LHW champ, ever. Jardine possibly but Forest.....not a chance.
