Absolutely, 100% agree. I'm SO sad to see Forest retire!

Aside from what I'm quoting, UFC 59 was my very first live UFC show. I can still remember standing in my box seat, half drunk screaming my f'in HEAD OFF for Forest in this sea of Tito fans in Orange County.
I remember towards the end everyone was screaming for Forest to win and wow was that an exciting night I lost my voice for 3 whole days!

I also remember meeting Evan Tanner that night too after his win but that isn't what this thread is for and I never go off topic....but anyway, YES, Forest, the very first TUF and nothing but excitement after excitement and of course he needs to be in the HOF.

WAR FOREST!

He was the first Ultimate Fighter winner.

The fight against Bonnar was declared the #1 UFC fight of all time in the UFC Ultimate 100 Greatest Fights.

Three fights of the year.

Four fight of the nights. 1 Submission of the night

10 and 5

TUF Coach

I think that all of that coupled with what his fight with Bonnar did for the business means he should get it. Taken bit by bit it's not a whole lot but when added up I think it is.
