...After Shogun and Rampage many people were convinced that Forrest was championship material. He was even a huge favorite over Rashad (65 to 35). If he impresses against Nog I think we'll be hearing some more praise.
MMA fans can have such short term memories.
I agree with what isnt quoted from your post entirely.
But being one of those who picked Forrest to beat Rashad, i would do it again if the fight happened tomorrow.
Nog is a striker who uses straight punches and accurate counters to pick apart people who strike with him. Thats a bad match-up against a fighter who wins his fights by outworking his opponents and doubling their volume of strikes. Just like Anderson Silva was a tough match-up stylistically for him.
