    I dont know about a TKO or KO, Forrest is one of the toughest dudes in MMA and has an iron jaw, whatever the outcome it should be a exciting fight.

    That's exactly why I think that it will be a tko/ko, because Forrest is a tough dude and will be willing to take a huge ammount of punishment before he asks to be saved. I don't see him pulling a GSP and tapping to punches but I do see the ref pulling Rampage off of him.

    Word is he's looking good? I hope so, because he hasn't appeared to be taking the fight as seriously as he should, but I'm glad my impression is wrong.

    I know it is a few days away, but what are the picks and thoughts on this card?

    My picks
    Rampage
    Ricardo Almeida
    Joe Stevenson
    Kos
    Tyson Griffin
    Gonzaga
    Cole Miller

    I am going out on a limb with some of the fighters-don't really respect Gurgel's ability as a fighter-more of the coach type.
    The Griffin-Aurelio fight looks to be the most entertaining in my opinion.

    The under card:
    Hill taps out to rear naked choke in the second round to Buchholz
    Guillard wins TKO in 1st round (almost gets arm-barred)
    Miller beats Gurgel by tap out in third round
    Gonzaga wins in the first (dominate)

    Not a bad night of fights...

    - Griffin fought more of the tactical fight that Guida did against Aurelio instead of the wild style that would have won him a bonus. Picking that first style seemed to be a good idea as it won him the fight. Marcus threw subs up all day, but just didn't have anything there really.

    - Another fight, and Chris Lytle still has never been legitimately finished. Damned if Koscheck didn't try though. That was an absolutely brutal display of ground and pound through out the fight. His posture from half guard was so good in was almost like he had the mount. I'll give Kos credit for trying to stand for a little while, but he went back to what he knows and did a great job with it.

    - Gleison got the first round here, and was on the way to getting the second. Joe Daddy's guillotine is absolutely sick though. He slipped the one early and didn't get it, then he came back again at it for the finish. I'd like to see Griffin and Stevenson fight each other next.

    - Cote v. Almeida sucked. Cote didn't let his hands go, and after the first round Almeida couldn't get the takedown.

    - I thought the Rampage v. Forrest fight was absolutely phenomenal, but was absolutely horribly judged. I really thought Rampage won every round save for the second. The fight stayed on the feet for the majority of the time, and I really think Rampage was more effective with his flurries than Forrest was with his leg kicks. Forrest had a nice triangle in the 4th, and I immediately thought to the Arona finish when Rampage went to slam out of it.

    I don't know, maybe I missed something. I have no idea how one judge gave Forrest four of those rounds.

    i had Rampage winning 3 of the 5-Forrest winning Round 2 and 5.
    Great fight but not the right decision IMO. I can't see Forrest holding this belt very long-Chuck wants it back, W. Silva would like it and Machida should be getting a shot soon?
