Wtf? Thiago....silva? The guy who just got KO'd by machida? What has he done to warrant a top 5 spot? Thats right...nothing. Maybe he's top 10, maybe. No hate on him he's just not top 5. And he didnt beat " the real" Shogun?? Seriously? If you know MMA then you know almost every fighter fights under 100 %. Its just the way it is. Forrest dominated him for 3 whole rounds and then added insult to injury and made him tap in the dying seconds of the fight. And his fight with Rampage has been discussed forever. Guess what? It doesnt matter what you or I think. It matters what the judges thought. And they thought he won. So he beat the former #1 in quinton for the belt, and beat the number one contender in Shogun, who could end up being #1 if he beats Machida. Thats pretty damn impressive and there is no way he does not deserve a top 10 spot. He lost to one of the most dangerous strikers in the world. It happens. You can think hes overrated if you;d like, but dont make dumb*** comments like his wins are questionable or he fought the fake shogun. Cuz the real one was in hiding right? Whats questionable was his loss against Tito. Check that fight out again if youd like.
Now now now don't go saying check the Tito fight... That's what the judges decided and they know how to score a fight as you pointed out in your argument about the Rampage fight. I agree with whoever it was that posted that Griffin will just be the next Jardine. Both of whom are overrated and Thiago will do what Forrest couldn't and beat the hell out of Jardine. If you'd like I'll do a 3 month AV bet on that one.
Yeah Thiago got beat by Machida who happens to be the #1 LHW and undefeated... Your point. Forrest got beat by a MW, granted he's the best P4P but nonetheless he's a MW and if forrest is as great as the hype he shouldn't have gotten embarrassed so badly.
If Forrest is lucky enough to earn a rematch with Shogun or Rampage it doesn't make it past the 2nd round. Forrest got lucky and IMO the luck of the Irish has just run out!
