This is a guy that lost to Mark Coleman and looked dreadful doing it.

That argument falls into the mma math equation that we all know doesn't work. This is also the guy who gave Bones one of his toughest fights to date, see what I did there....

While Forrest is a better fighter than Bonnar, he's a totally different fighter. The biggest difference is that Bonnar has a better beard which is a big aspect of this matchup & he actually uses his ground game in an offensive manner.

Forrest has this excellent ground game that he never uses, he did put away Shogun when he was gassed...

And Forrest fought a stupid fight, the same Forrest who hasn't looked good since. He was beat befor he stepped in the octagon that night.
