Rashad and Jardine both stopped Forrest. Jacksons camp has a perfect gameplan for a guy like Forrest and I think they have his number.
Forrest is a diff fighter now then he was then. In the first fight he was begging to be KO putting his head down and running in on Jardine. This should be a great fight I see a decishion coming out of this but still a good fight.
First fight he actually got caught coming out of a flurry with a hook from Jardine... The thing about Jardine is that he's easy to look past, just like the first time... I don't think Forrest will make that same mistake again, but you never know what he's thinking when everyone around him is telling him that he's "on another level"... Jardine's faced some of the stiffest competition out there at LHW... I mean in his last 6 fights... Rampage, Vera, Wandy, Liddell, HA, and Forrest...
When you see a guy like Forrest get a fight with hector Ramirez and Jardine get fights with the likes of Vera and Wand it just seems like some guys get the easier road... IMO the only reason people say Forrest is on another level is because he outpointed Rampage in a fight I thought could have gone either way... Otherwise he's the same fighter with a big win over Shogun... Much like Jardine with his big win over LIddell...
They're both intelligent fighters that like to stand and trade, but have really tightened up their striking games... All I'm saying is that with the level of comp Jardine has faced (which is up to par with if not past who Forrest has fought) should keep him on the same level as Griffen anyways
