    Via RNC. Forrest went on to become the LHW champion by beating Rampage Jackson in his next fight

    Shogun rushed his knee injuries both times. Made easy work of Forrest in the rematch

    Anderson Silva had already taken Forrest’s soul by the rematch

    He stood on his head? Just joking, good memory you have. Forest Griffin was born too early, I think he would have benefited from fighting in the social media era.

    Not just soul, Forrest described his body as broken those last years. Couldn't even brush his teeth using his right hand.

    And the number one unidsputed GOAT, Anderson "The Spider" Silva, put Forrest into the Matrix.

    Forrest was an animal back then

    He was never quite the same after this era It seems like

    Xtreme couture shit on a lot of careers with their ridiculous full on spars in the gym

    If you get knocked out in training, there's something wrong

    One of the few times I've looked like a complete idiot when introducing noobs to MMA

    I was at a friend's house watching the event with casuals and noobs who didn't even know who Shogun was. I remember telling them how it was a squash match and to watch how easy Shogun demolishes him, not even a competition, etc

    Didn't come out looking too good in that one lol

    Only won the rematch because Forrest had a legitimate injury.
