I think this would be a great match up, Forrest has faced much tougher opponents such as Tito and Jeremy Horn however they both share a common opponent, Elvis Sinosic; who Bisping was much more dominant over than forrest was.....

how did Bisping look more impressive??? first of all forrest finished the fight in the first which is something Bisping could not do...and Bisping got rocked hard in the 2nd round when elvis never rocked forrest so forrest looked way better than bisping did in their respective fights.......and also forrest is on a different level then bisping i dont know why anyone think he is even close to top 10 he's never beaten anyone worth shit in MMA forrest would maul bisping

I'd say Forrest by UD...he could use his crisper striking and stay on the outside

Lucky for us if Bisping wins this upcoming fight I'm sure we'll see this one in the future. Forrest aint going nowhere and eventually Dana will have to put Bisping in with the big dogs instead of keeping him chained to a car axle in the back yard

Forrest is a huge 205er and Bisping a pretty small one. With that said I think Bispings style is the style to beat Forrest with. He's hyperaggressive and even though he probably wouldn't knock Forrest out he'd rough him up and probably open up cuts.

I think it would be a close fight but Bisping with the bigger gastank and the "in your face" style would win a decision.

I think Bisping can pull it off...... Dont get me wrong Forrest is a great fighter but I see Bisping's style of fighting too much for Forrest.......



Bisping by UD!!!

I think this one is hard to call, it would be an absolute war thats for sure. They both have a similar, loose, aggressive style, and I think they would bring out the best in each other. I think Bisping might just take it though, he has a great amount of striking power, and he gets crisper every time.

Hard to call, but Id give it 55/45 to Griffin due to his experience, but since they are imo so similar, its more of a coin toss than a definitive answer as to who takes this one.

I have to go with Forest. Until Bisping beats someone relavant then he is no more than a Dana White pet project. Dana wants to keep him clear so the UK fans will have someone to cheer for. Soko said he wanted Bisping and Dana said he was crazy. I think that is just the type of figher they should give him its not like he asked for Chuck or Tito. But back to the fight Forest took Tito to the limit he would at least UD Bisping.

Bisping for sure he dominates people with his standup and Griffin would get ktfo by Bisping if he stood up with him and then if it went to the ground Bisping would tko him there via gnp or submitt him.I do agree with some of you though it seems like Dana is protecting Bisping while Forrest has fought Bonnar again,Ortiz,and Jardine.I would want to see Bisping-Evans more then this one though.
