I don't know, I watched this with 5 of my friends, all of us had forrest winning before the announcement, we all had him winning 2nd with 10-8, then 3 and 5th with 10-9. I don't see how in anyway rampage won this fight, he caused minimal damage, sat on forrest after he did a self-takedown while forrest had a couple submission attempts...bah...rampage was to hurt to walk, forrest just hit him with kick after kick, most blocked, but alot more than what rampage did.
Oh well, but I thought Cote lost...
I love that forrest.
you weren't watching the same fight as me...
It should have been 3 rounds to 2 in favor of rampage. I wouldn't have been totally blown away by a draw. A split decision in Forrest's favor would have been a big stretch but.....4 out of 5 rounds? That's insane. I love Forrest, everybody does... but He didn't win that fight. He fought great, stuck to his gameplan and it was an effective game plan but he still shouldn't have got the Dub & Cote won 2 out of 3 rounds.
During the fight i remember rampage rocking forrest one of many times and Joe Rogan saying something like "great right hand by forrest..." I was like, 'dude, did you see what just happened? Forrest got rocked"
I don't think anybody in the room thought they were going to give it forrest. Forrest is a cool dude and he's a great "face" for the sport but he shouldn't really be the champ.
