      I second that.

      Forrest is very underrated but he's as hard as granite and never gives up.

      Should be a good one.

      My first introduction to UFC was the first series of the Ultimate Fighter. Forrest was great in that. He wanted to fight every week, when the others wanted to play safe and go as long as they could without a fight. That final between Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar was voted the greatest fight in UFC history and I agree. What a war!

      I'll certainly be staying up for UFC101, Exited to see what Silva can do stepping up a weight I think Forest will put up a huge fight but I can't look past Silva continuing his dominance.

      Forest vs Silva.... Would have loved to see Shogun fight Silva more tbh. But I really like Forest as a light heavyweight more so than a middleweight

      So did you guys see UFC 101? Not a great one in my opinion, though Silva against Griffin was quite entertaining.

      Yeah I stayed up to watch it, wasn't as good as UFC 100, the undercard fights wern't the best, and BJ never looked like he was going to lose against Florian. Silva v Griffin was the most entertaining you're right there! Silva looked untouchable but I was surprised Forest of all people gave up that easily.

      I would love to see Silva go up against Machida for the title.

      Haha yer, what was all that about! He must have been embarrassed to run out like that. Machida v Silva would be amazing! Two of the best fighters in the UFC(Along with GSP)I don't know how it would turn out though, Both of them are too difficult to hit!

      Would be a really tactical fight I think, they both often wait to counter. Won't happen anytime soon though. Machida is going up against Shogun for UFC 104 in October. Anderson Silva is going up against Dan Henderson in middleweight at a yet unknown date apparently, probably sometime at the end of this year. UFC 105 is going to be held in England, Manchester. Also, the next Ultimate Fighter series starts in september, heavyweight edition. With Rampage and Rashad Evans being the coaches, and they'll go up against eachother at the finale in december. Apparently Kimbo Slice is one of the competitors.

      Yeah that's what I think, they're both very elusive and want the opponent to make the first move. If Bisping beat Hendo he would've been the one fighting Silva in Manchester! That would've been great, Silva will beat him yet again I think, then I'd like to see Machida take him on.

      Aparantley Dana White made that heavyweight edition especialy for Kimbo to prove himself! Heavyweight UF is gonna be great!

      I can't really see Kimbo getting anywhere though, he's a good boxer, but that's about it really. He also seems to be one of the smaller ones.



      Should be a good fun watch though.

      Kimbo Slice is awful, truly awful. Got knocked out cold in sparring and also lost in something like 30 seconds by knockout in his last Elite XC outing.

      He's just nowhere near UFC standard.

      I read that Dana White is going to try and tempt Fedor Emelianenko into a fight with Brock Lesnar, now that will be a fight to remember.

      The heavyweights division certainly needs an influx of new fighters. Right now I really don't see another contender for the title inhouse. That's why I think the light heavyweight division is alot more interesting at the moment, some strong contenders there.

      Bobby Lashley would have to fight some other UFC fighters first though? He hasn't really done anything yet worthy of a title shot I'd say.

      Yer that's true, But he was quoted in the news saying he wants to fight him.His record is like 4-0 in the MFA, I think that's where he's fighting. I'd like to see that fight in the future! Brock is taking the heavyweight division by storm at the moment though.

      Bobby Lashley is 4-0 but he's reportedly signing a contract with TNA Wrestling so i doubt he'll be carrying his MMA career on.

      Brock Lesnar will utterly smash Fedor Emelianenko to pieces. Then eat him.

      Lashley already signed with TNA in july, but he seems to be continueing his MMA career either way, he's fighting Ron Waterman in october.

      I think Fedor can beat Brock, but Fedor signed with Strikeforce now? He really needs to just join UFC.

      Brock has just got too much for anybody right now and i think that includes Fedor.

      If he grounds Fedor and just unloads then it's goodnight.

      Nice bit of revenge for Brock that. I reckon it'll be Andrei Arlovski or Tim Silva next for Brock if they can sort a deal out.
      I give Lesnar some credit he looked good.  90% of his fight is based on his size. I would like to see him fight Feodor. I think Feodor would destroy him. But I would still watch it.  Feodor better rethink his options and start coming to the UFC. Everyday he gets older. He needs to cash in right now and go to UFC.

      Would love to see Fedor vs Brock or even Lashley vs Brock.

      Incase you haven't seen this already:

      I've been a fan of UFC since UFC 1. Back when it was no weight class, no gloves, anything goes. I've seen a ton of fighters and Feodor is the best ever. So far.

      When he fights he is technically perfect. What ever hold, move or technique his opponent uses, Feodor will counter with a superior move. If his opponents is a striker, feodors takes it to the mat, If his opponent is a Jiu Jitsu master, Feodor counters with strikes and kicks. He is a perfect fighter.

      I've seen about every one of Feodors fights. His pro fights. I've never seen anyone get an edge on him or put him into a position he wasn't ready for.

      I wish he was around when they started UFC. I would of liked to see him fight Dan Severin, Randy Couture or Royce Gracie.  I would still like to see him fight Couture but I think old Randy is past his prime. Too bad would of been epic.

      Emelianenko vs Gracie would've been the greatest MMA fight in the Universe. Ever.

      The first UFC i saw was UFC 6 i think when Tank Abbott just smashed his way to the top.
