    I voted yes because I thought the poll was about Drag On loving pole

    I thought Shogun deserved an immediate title shot, so I guess I wouldnt be too upset if forrest got one. I think if wandy wins he gets a title shot, given him and jacksons history.

    He beat the number one guy, and not many people want to see jardine take a swing at it.

    I would have said no prior to him beating Shogun. While I think his win was a fluke, (Unless Shogun really needed the needle to have cardio), he did beat the guy I thought deserved a shot.

    In turn, Forrest deserves a shot at getting beaten.

    I said no, I just don't see him fighting for a title right now.

    Thing is he has beaten Shotgun and thats extremely worthy of a title shot.

    I dunno.....I just don't see it.

    three rounds of dominating someone and choking them out is a fluke? are you fucking stupid?



    He dominated and stopped the #1 LHW in the world. yes he has earned a title shot. Many less deserving people get title shots in MMA, if he gets one then he earned it, if he doesnt, no biggie cause there are a few other people in line as well.

    I thought the TUF winner always gets a title shot??

    If so, Forrest is way past due.

    He needs a few more serious wins under his belt before he deserves a title.

    How about the 3 guys that are all undefeated? Thiago Silva, Rashad Evans(even though I hate him), Lyoto Machida

    I kept wondering where Forrests personality went when he was interviewing the Foo Fighters.

    That was some bland TV right there.

    Machida for sure, but it is not a smart business decision. After Rampage beats Forrest hopefully Machida gets a shot. :wiggle:

    So because Forrest in his last 5 fights beat a top 3 guy and 2 nobodies while losing to an over the hill Ortiz and a nobody he gets a title shot?

    Lyotos beat BJ (yeah there was a weight difference) and Franklin, hes legit imo. If he can pull out a win vs soko I think he'll have definitely proved himself.

    no, because in his last fight he beat the #1 ranked.

    that alone puts him in the top 3 for title shots. Anyone can argue which should get it, but to argue that he shouldnt get one after beating shogun is stupid.
