    Tough to say. I would say it depends on who he fights next

    does he fight Rampage until he loses the belt to him? 4+

    (I voted 1, I think he can beat Liddell but lose to Machida, I think Machida might come first)

    who the first opponent??? :dunno:

    fuck it.
    0.

    he loses to liddell because liddell will touch his chin

    rashad will take him down repeatedly for LnP,
    machida will submit him with elusuvity,
    wanderlei will get inside and lay his hands on him,
    rampage will win via godliness,
    thiago silva would maul him,
    anderson would add more footage to his HL reel.

    None, I don't think he has a chance against any of the top contenders.

    But I also didn't think he had a chance against Shogun or Rampage :o

    Evans, and Lidell for sure. i think Forrest will have a good gameplan for both.

    Wanderlei i give him a 50/50 shot if he can stick to a get in get out game plan.

    Machida is the only guy at 205 that I don't think Forrest can beat. He has a good shot against Wandy and I don't think he'd have a problem with Rashad or Chuck.

    lol at the forest bandwagon. Any of the contenders can take him out. He wont be able to beat lidell in a stand up trade off and he wont be able to keep him down if he takes him down. Every one has already forgotten that chuck has one of the best sprawls in the game.

    Id like to see him go up against machida next. I think it would be a hilarious fight.

    I would love to watch Machida pick him apart for 5 rounds. Chuck as past his prime as I think he is, still beats Forrest.

    so is this all Forrest hate or is this commentary on how stacked the LHW division is? For me it's a little of both :dunno: not much of a Forrest fan, bit I don't think anybody will hold on to the belt too long in the division.
