I think people in this thread are really dumb for thinking that Forrest will get submitted. Also, I have Forrest winning this fight.

I can see Bonnar vs Forrest in the spring of 2013. Bonnar does not want another fight this soon as his wife and him are expecting his first kid this month. Hopefully they make it happen regardless of what happens in the Davis vs Griffin fight.

Forrest does alright against wrestlers and trouble with hard strikers which Phil certainly is not.

I haven't really been that impressed by what I've seen out of Phil thus far. Great wrestler and physical specimen/still very green in mma. Forrest has a massive experience advantage in this fight. I expect Phil to hug'n'slug his way to victory, maybe even by tko, but I don't count Forrest totally out of this fight.

Forrest needs to keep it standing and work like he did against Tito last fight, except without being knocked down.

Forrest's kryptonite has always been strikers with speed. But he's very strong and hard to hold down. He's also good at dictating pace and rhythm when he doesn't have to worry about getting clipped.Maybe I'm underestimating Phil, but I think he's gonna have a long night.
