I think Davis will be a clear favorite but I wouldn't count out Forrest.

Forrest has better striking (but no power) and better jiu jitsu. Davis will have a hard time taking him down and Forrest could win this fight either by picking him apart or even by sub off his back.

I will be rooting for the underdog in this one. I'm still a fan Forrest.

Forrest has amazing heart and skills, in my opinion. It's his mental attitude that seems to vary or be called in to question. I think he can win if everything between the ears is right.

Ahhhh Poor Forrest.....went from getting smashed into oblivion by ChaCha to getting buried six feet under by Mr. Wonderful.

Happy retirement!



Chael I was hoping you'd come up with something about Davis not being able to take down Forrest because he's not Brazilian!

I like the fight
Giving Mr.Wonderful a challenge is a great idea after the pointless showcase fight in Brazil. Lets see what this kids made of

what happened to Bonnar/Griffin III?



They'll schedule that after Griffin gets dominated by Davis.

I don't like the match up, but understand building Davis back up.



Sucks that the UFC even has to. I like Davis though.

I've got him by UD. Forrest is gonna get taken down and punched . Not to say he won't land a few though just don't think he is as relevant as Davis COULD be




Agree...but I think Davis subs Griffin quite possibly but decision is more than likely

Balls, I've always been interested in Bader vs Davis



I like it too, but Bader is coming of the loss to Machida. Hopefully Bader gets a fight soon and wins, and if Davis wins the fight with Forrest, it would make total sense at that point.




Id like to see Bader and Glover...I honestly think Bader takes it if and a big "if" if Bader uses his wrestling...

I think Glover might have a suspect chin...That punch from Maldonado was not powerful at all...Pretty much all arm but connected well...Maldonado wasnt using his hips at all...
