  1. GO CHEAL says:

    after being held down for one round i see forrest getting tired. cheal wins by taking a log down aka forrest.

    • Bob says:

      Forrest needs to rehearse his post fight win/lose reaction.. Regardless if he wins or lose he always runs and crys like a little girl win/lose/draw.. smdh..

    • JAEDR says:

      FORREST IS TOO LONG AND WILL USE A TRIP TO GET ON TOP OF CHAEL. OTHERWISE THE FIGHT STAYS ON THE FEET WITH CHAEL GETTING POUNDED ON BY A BIGGER STRONGER LONGER FIGHTER WHO MAYBE HAS TO SPRING BACK UP FROM A TAKEDOWN OR TWO.

  2. danielrchargers says:

    Forrest, most likely, is pretty pissed…
    but it is his own fault.

  3. danielrchargers says:

    That being said
    I got Forrest by Submission, if he does not box him up on the feet. Cuz Forrest is fucking huge compared to Chael.

  4. Payday! says:

    Forest FTW… looks like I’m going to make a shit pile of money!

  5. Phantom weight says:

    My prediction – chael first round arm triangle.then shortly after forrest cries like a bitch and runs off to the locker room.

  6. Xaninho says:

    Me being Xan I fuckkng already know what the fuck is up ( not down – syndrome )
    As I am Xaninho, I fight will end a no contest as Forrest get his mickey caught on a nail and bleeds till the ref calls it. I have ficking said it. I’m fucking smart like jeff skilling.
    Now
    Down to Xan mother fuckers

  7. ZC says:

    Forrest’s only chance in this fight is that he catches Sonnen in a submission. Otherwise, Sonnen will outbox him (considering Forrest is already gassed by the time the cage door closes) and lay him on his back.

    I see this going to decision, because Forest is a tough guy to finish when the fight isn’t being thrown. But if it does get finished, I see either a TKO for Sonnen, or Submission for Griffin.

    I’ve got Chael by decision.

    Personally I love titio

  11. bunkylomax says:

    reading these comments makes me laugh..what’s up with all you losers using stupid names or logging on as this xaniho guy..anyways I like Chael..Forrest lost to Tito enough said

    • Xaninhoslittlegay says:

      If I was gay, which indeed I am, I’d tell you to shut your pie hole, I
      Am gay

    • KissMyAssCoppers says:

      How does one win by simply getting outstruck 3:1? tell me that..Griffin won that fight.

    • Mike b says:

      Forrest won that first fight with Tito,everybody knows that.so he’s 3 and 0 against Tito if u ask me.people sleep on Forrest I don’t know why,he’s beat some of the best fighters in the world and he comes to bang every time.chael is no joke either,I have nothing bad to say about either fighter.but I do think chael will take this fight by decision.forrest is a really big light heavy,but I think chael will still be able to handle him.chael does have to be careful tho Forrest is very active off of his back,he always try’s to throw something up,he never submitted anybody off of his back but he’s active,he’s always moving constantly.dont be surprised if Forrest submits chael.Interesting match up.

  12. thetude says:

    cant wait for this payday, Chael isnt used to fighting guys at 205, he isnt going to be able to lay on top of these stronger dudes for 5 rounds, he has to finish griffin and that shit aint gonna happen

  13. DMAC says:

    After he beats a washed up FG he better not think of talking title shots! BUT, I respect Chael P cuz he isn’t a ***** and will talk shit unlike 90% of MMa fighter.. So if he does end up getting the shot I won’t be mad, closed mouths don’t get fed..

    • Xaninho's cocksman says:

      You are fucking correct

    • Mike b says:

      How is Forrest griffin washed up fag,why just cause he isn’t a ranked light heavy,he just lost one fight in his last 4 so what the fuck are u saying…he can kick ur ass all day bitch.i like both guys but stop sucking on chaels nut sac.and I don’t give a fuck how long ago it was….Forrest already beat chael so that even makes u look more stupid.i don’t think either guy will get crushed it will be a competitive fight.ur the type of bitch that kicks a fighter when their down,show some respect for the sport and it’s fighters,u make us fans look ingnorant and unappreciative……it’s not cool.sorry for the essay fellas I just hate when retarded people make stupid comments about fighters that actually get in that cage and fight when morons like this are looking in from the outside……

  14. ging says:

    u knw wat no wonder sonnen so happy all u lil cocksuckers on his dick again u all chat da same shit every time lets have it right shall we….1 sonnen didnt deserve a w against bisping 2 he always talks bout this and that he gna do yet all he does is cuddle his opponent till they get so bored they quit ,3 forrest is a tough mofo so dont count him out

    • Xaninhoslittlegay says:

      Gay much? I thinks so, before I sleep I imagine me spooned around chaels slider leg-esque ball sack and cuddle that baby as if I was bidding behind a bunker wall as a grenade went BANG,
      I love hugging nuts – especially Sonnems,
      But , however, I ask the interlude, does that make me a nutthuger?

  15. Troy boy says:

    Fuck this fight, i rather see machida vs sonnen for a tittle shot. Machida would destroy this lil chump

  16. BG says:

    I have FG winning sub or sonnen winning decision. First time these guys met sonnen took him down but was caught in triangle. I see Forrest looking for subs in guard. FG has to long of limps but it should be good

  17. John says:

    Forrest is a B-level fighter at best. But lucky for him, Chael is only a C-level at best.
    Forret by sub, or TKO, round 2.

  18. Joe says:

    I think Forrest will come out the underdog in this fight, anyone who thinks Tito beat him is blind Forrest out-struck him by a mile and totally won the fight, he already beat The American Big Mouth once and he can do it again, and he’s like a whole other person bigger that Sonnen.

    – Griffin by Sub (3rd Rnd)

  19. Koshchek Always Fights Fair says:

    GAY GAY GAY. YOU’RE ALL GAY!!!! EXCEPT THE ONE’S WHO KNOW FORREST WILL BEAT THIS ASS CLOWN. I KNOW I SAID ASS, BUT TRY NOT TO GET ALL GAY EXCITED YOUR GAYNESSES.

  20. You idiots DO realize... says:

    Forrest Griffin already beat Chael before he had any real TDD by (you guessed it) triangle choke. Griffin’s boxing is better, he’s massive in comparison, and he has great footwork for a light heavyweight (imagine Michael Bisping + 20lbs). Further, Forrest is awesome off his back and let’s face it; Chael isn’t exactly the best at submission defense.
    Tell me again why you guys believe Chael has a snowballs chance in hell let alone deserves to be the favorite? (barring Griffin sleeping on him or doing something incredibly stupid)
    I can answer that for you: Hype. And you dummies are the exact reason I make a ton of money betting on this stuff.

  21. MMACRAVER says:

    Some of you may not realize this but…. Forrest and Chael have ALREADY FOUGHT.

    Chael was submitted in the first round by.. triangle I think?

    Sound familiar?

  22. WrestlingRules says:

    Seriously, I said it once and I’ll say it again: Chael is the best wrestler in MMA. I have several posters with Chael wearing tiny leotards on my bedroom walls and he looks really impressive.

  23. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    I put my mouth around my cats anus and suck as hard as I can until I start to feel feces drip onto my tongue.

  24. WrestlingRules says:

    Is it weird if that turns me on?

  25. Me says:

    One word at these comments – lol
    Little message to ‘Xaninhoslittlegay’ – You seem like one annoying kid.

  26. race says:

    Forest by triangle

  27. slacker says:

    I’ll take Forrest in a decision. He’ll get taken down, but he will also stuff him. Leg kicks will help Forrest be superior in the stand – up.

  28. g00db0y says:

    bell rings…fight starts… chael takes down forrest…beats him up…forrest unable to defend…ref stops fight. CHAEL by 1st round stoppage.

  29. maurice says:

    this fight all depends on forrest chin. if forrest chin holds up i think forrest will gas the smaller sonnen and finish the fight via sub in rnd 3. this is the real main event. both guys are good at making it a very very ugly fight, both in technique and awkward style.

    chael vs forrest = trt vs trt criminal who ran to lhw after silva took his balls VS the only soul silva successfully taken in the octagon

  30. @GetEducatedMMA says:

    who the hell is betting for sonnen? sonnen is a natural 205, but griffin is a HUGE 205 who is said to cut down from roughly 220 pounds. besides being bigger, he has an underated ground game, he submitted shogun for fuck sakes, and everyone knows sonnens weak point is submission defense. to add to all this, griffin has better standup, at the moment is more used to fighting lightheavyweights, and has great cardio. so fuck these odds. WAR GRIFFIN!

  31. Mark Munoz is a joke says:

    Chael sonnen in horrible
    Forrest griffin is even worse !

  32. Seedy says:

    CHAEL COULDN’T FINISH HIS OWN FUCKEN MUM… HIS PUNCHERS ARE LIKE FAIRY KISSER… I COULD TAKE THEM…

  33. Bjj BB says:

    Id bet my money on chael!

  34. Gaylord Focker says:

    Fail Sonnen via **** bar.. FTW Fail Sonnen.. Bitch!

  35. Bjj BB says:

    Holly shit!! I cant believe i put chael’s name!! I ment forrest, i cant fucking stand dem dry humpers!! And chael can toss and hold the 185 pound guys but he wont do it to forrest, and forrest got chael on the stand up too!!

  36. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    I’ll take Chael by anal

  37. Dick Diaz says:

    damn, imagine if Forrest does actually lose… he would be done…

  38. maurice says:

    the winner of this fight is still a fucking loser in my eyes. 2 massive losers fighting for the number 30 spot in the lhw division. these 2 should just retire and save us from watching 15 mins of nothingness. joe silva wtf??
