Couple of comments on this fight:
The UFC Hype Machine was in full effect for Forrest last night. Goldie, Rogan, and Bonnar wouldn't stfu the whole fight about Forrest this and that, even while Tito was laying an unmitigated beating on Forrest in Round 1.
Close decision??? People booing? You've got to be kidding me. Round 1 could easily have been scored 10/8 for Tito, who had his way with Forrest against the fence, dropping bomb after bomb on Forrest's head. Forrest basically won the second round by default. Tito easily won the third round even before the takedown, which just sealed it for him.
Please get rid of Eddie Bravo. He truly displayed any lack of mma knowledge and/or objectivity by scoring the last round for Forrest. It's a joke anyway having a submission grappler who retired after one significant win, who has never had a pro fight, scoring these fights. I'd rather see a real mma personality in the booth or scoring the fight. How about Renzo, or Miletich, or Coutoure, or anyone other than Goldie and Bravo???!!!
Fact is, Tito laid a beating on Forrest last night, especially considering his bum knee. Tito opened up cuts under both eyes of Forrest and walked away untouched. Forrest's offense consisted of about 3 punches that landed flush and never hurt Tito.
Forrest is a decent fighter, with a great heart, but no way in Tito's league yet. Merely absorbing a beating and mounting no discernable offense against a rusty, injured former champ does not mean that you "belong". It means you'd make a decent sparring partner. Forrest needs to work on his offense.
