    And only 8 of those were standing yet he knocked Forrest down three times. And this was when Anderson went up in weight against a man who was fresh off a title loss. Incredible performance.

    Not taking anything away from Anderson but Forrest Griffin was not a top caliber opponent.

    That ass whooping was inevitable!

    He was “tailor made” for him.

    Said every GSP fan trying to discredit anything Anderson accomplished against larger opponents across weight classes.

    Great performance an all but Forrest should not really have been allowed to fight that night.

    Guy was having mental problems at the time.

    I understand, I didn’t say Forrest sucks.

    I simply said the truth, he’s not on Anderson’s level.

    He was legit, but he was a disrespectful prick when he fought Forrest.
