I don't want Forrest to get KO'd!

I agree that Forrest will bring it! He isn't going to be "deliberately" falling on his back every two seconds. Anderson will be able to "counter strike" to his heart's content, well, until Forrest takes him out.

this is exactly what AS needs, a guy who will bring it to him, he needs to be challenged again...I'm not saying Maia couldn't do that(don't think Nate can), but lets get anderson's fire back, and then let him face Maia...I'm actually looking forward to this fight, Forrest is a gamer, and I wouldn't be shocked if he shocked the world

The other thing about Forrest that other fighters lack as much of is his pure enthusiasm...this is a guy who likes fighting more than anyone. This is a guy who is nuts and loves every minute of it.

Unlike Thales et al, I don't forsee a fearful Forrest Griffin against AS. And that bodes unwell for AS.

War FG!!

anyone counting forrest out is nuts ... sure silva may win, but forrest can avoid big shots (he avoided most of rampages) and can take down and control silva ...

I don't see any reason for this fight either. He needs to defend his title, maybe Wanderlai Silva. Forrest has nothing to gain in this and Silva doesn't either.

I like Wandy, but how in anyway shape or form does he deserve a title shot at this point in time
