I think Forrest's ring wear has caught up with him, he hasn't really looked the same ever since losing the belt, he's taken a lot of abuse in a short span of time and sure he's got stamina but he doesn't look explosive anymore. I think Forrest is at least as good as Lil Nog on the ground but I think Lil Nog's boxing is going to force Forrest to take him down, and that is where I really think Forrest has lost his explosion. Rogerio by decision I'm thinking.
I disagree. I think forrest is basically the same fighter he has been for a few years. People just severely overrated him when he got a bad decision to win the belt. He's good, but he's still ultimately a pretty sloppy brawler who over-commits to his strikes.
"since he lost the belt" is also only 2 fights, with one of them being against Anderson Silva, who destroys everyone, so I don't see how anyone could make an accurate assessment based pretty much solely on his Ortiz rematch.
