I think Forrest will be smart, take him down, and go for the sub.

I hope this match happens!

I think one reason Alexander got the KO is because Jardine looked like he was using a weird stance. His hands were real high, it didn't look right. That could be why he was knocked out so quickly. He looked like a monkey!

Forrest looks like he is fighting more intelligently instead of just slugging it out and taking a beating. If he can avoid Alexander's aggression he may be able to kick/punch him down to exhaustion. Forrest by UD!

I Think this fight is a contender for Fight of The Year. 2 ppl that like to bang. Houston is alot more powerful both standing and in the clinch. but Forrest's striking is CRISP. i mean look wat happend to shogun, he picked him apart. This is a fight that can go either way. and to those ppl that think that forrest is nothing, over rated. i laugh at u. He is the MOST EXCITING fighter to watch. every fight he is in is a war. Tito, Bonnar, Shogun, Horn just to name a few. But Forrest's ground skills are underated due to the fact they arent used much. he controled jeremy horn on his back, horn never got past the butterfly guard for more than 10 seconds.

IMO, Forrest is the future of the UFC. although he is not in his prime yet, he is, as Dana says "Top of the food chain", and his fight against Houston if it happends, will be one i GOTTA see.

I'd rather see Houston vs Wanderlei Silva. That would be some fireworks right there.
