Forrest only has two likely ways to pull out a victory in this fight grind out a decision or catch Quinton in a submission during a scramble. Forrest just doesn't knock people out, especially block heads like Rampage. He has excellent ground skills, but is self admittedly lacking in the area of takedowns. He will have the gas tank to go full speed with Jackson for five rounds and after seeing both of their last fights it's a very likely outcome.

i'd really like to see Forrest grind this one out, but i can't see Rampage really getting caught, maybe a sub... but i don't think thats how this one is going to play out.

Forrest has some decent wrestling skills.

Rampage can be knocked out, he just has really good strike defense. Notice his hands while taking strikes, his boxing is boxing is underrated.

I do think his chin is way better than Forrest's though. I don't see this ending in any way but these.

1. Rampage clips Forrest and knocks him out.
2. Forrest keeps a fast pace and gasses Rampage, winning a unanimous decision.
3. Rampage is able to out wrestle and control Forrest for the split decision win.

I want Forrest to win so bad but he has to finish the fight. He won't out work Quinton enough to get a decision. I thought Hendo did a good job but the decision goes to the Champ. I can see Forrest landing a few head kicks and good body shots. He will work good off his back and maybe pull off a sub. I love Forrest but didn't give him a chance against Shogun so he may shock the world once more.

I call Rampage 2nd Round (T)KO....
.......Boy I hope I am wrong!

I could see Rampage winning via T/KO, or dominating UD, or Forrest winning with a choke.
