what does everyone think about this? seems kind of dumb, because both are coming off of losses. I dont get it. But the last fight was close. Tito round 2 TKO

i think forrest will be a little bit hungrier this time around.. he took the loss to jardine pretty hard and i think he'll want to prove himself so if it happens i say forrest via judges split decision

If it happens do you want to wager on it ? I dont think forrest is on Tito's level. ill bet 100 to your 30

I wouldn't mind seeing them fight again although it's definitley not on my top 25. I see Tito coming out a lot stronger this time, his hands looked really good against Chuck so I'm sure it wouldn't be the same fight as before.

i wouldn't mind seeing it, i mean Barnett and Big Nog fought 2 times in under 4 months and the second fight was still awesome. I could see this fight being more exciting because they are both coming off of a lose.

Tito didn't cry when Chuck beat him.

I don't think they would have these two fight again so soon. They've only had one match apiece since they fought each other? There's plenty of guys at 205, and I don't think this match was compelling enough to justify a rematch.

doesnt interst me forrest isnt close to a headliner and the first fight wasnt that good. barnett and nog are 2 of the top heavyweights in the world both would beat tim silvia in my opinion

I really want to see a rematch. I know that Tito had 3 injuries, and one was a slipped disc which hurts like hell... Anyway, I am looking forward to seeing Tito at 100% vs Forrest at 100%. I know Forrest lost to Jardine, but I think Forrest would beat Jardine 7/10 times. Sometimes guys get caught, and that's what happened. I think if he would have clenched with Jardine after getting rocked, that he could have recovered.

Forrest has improved his striking since their fight imo, and is less wild then he was before...still wild, but seemed less than before. I think that they obviously both want to get back on a winning streak, but I would like to see them fight someone else in the 205 inbetween their rematch.

It's a little too soon for me, maybe 2 months or so.

i agree that there are plenty of guys at 205 to put them against.......id love to see forrest against rashad, so maybe we can find out who the real contender is supposed to be.........tito/jardine would be more interesting, 2 guys who have both beat forest recently

I know I'm a tito fan and I know this will sound bias, but trust me I'm not trying to be. I think this is a bad match up for Forrest. I really don't seem him pulling out a win on this one. If he looses this one, it's two looses in a row. It's a good build up for tito because he can show at 100% he can destroy Forrest. Yeah Forrest stand up is better it's still wild and Tito stand up is more percise and Forrest takedown defense is not that good. I see Tito pulling a Unamious Decision, or a finish by the second round. I want to see a rematch! It's seems too soon, but if you really think it about it's a fight people really want and Forrest is going to be hungrier then over. Possible upset, but I really don't see it.

problem with having 2 fighters both coming off a loss fighting each other is what do you do with the guy who loses....if tito loses against forest where does that put him in the division? and how do you justify then having him fight somebody like rashad when hes got 2 losses in a row


just throwing it out there....not that i dont want to see this fight, just that i think there are other fights that make more sense all around


tito by not crying

This is very true, because one superstar might have to go. But if Tito looses he'll probably retire and live off his money he's made, so I don't think he'd care that much. Possibly one of them may end up fighting for showtime or something. Or Tito going to Pride. But who knows.
