Announced on TAGG radio. Any other confirmation?
I thought Shogun vs Machida was confirmed by Dana. I'll look for the post
It's still listed on MMAWeekly as Machida as well, but this is new as of a few minutes ago. No source other than Trigg though, which is definitely not gospel.
Just a rumor thrown out there to chew on.
That would be better than Jardine. Here's hoping.
i think that would make for much better fights.
Give Shogun a title shot after he beats Griffen, then Machida gets teh shot after Shogun beats Rampage
wow i like those a lot more
If true... RIP Forrest... I think Machida would be a tougher fight for Shogun (although I heavily favor Shogun).... I don't see how Forrest wins this fight.
I like Forrest, but I don't see this ending well for him. It just looks like they're feeding him to Shogun to build Shogun's name.
he said he wanted shogun, let him dig his own grave.
Well that wasn't very smart of him.
is that real?? Damn, Forest looked like he was really improving after seeing his last fight. He was fighting kind of like Machida actually, goin in and gettin off some shots then quickly getting out. It looks like he's turning into a smarter, more technical fighter. But Damn...not improved enough for Shogun imo. That sucks for him.
Also Machida v. Chuck?? Thats kind of a weird matchup imo. Machida looks to have a good fighting style to beat chuck. I figured they let Chuck fight someone fairly easy but with a big name. I woudlve expected Chuck v. Ken Shamrock before seein Chuck v. Machida.
Forest looked good against Ramirez but he was also a LOT bigger than him. He was just using his reach the whole fight. He looked the same way when he was fighting Jardine until he got caught and got ktfo. Shogun would dominate him.
holy shit are you kidding me? every kick he through his arms swung wild and his chin was hanging out. His combos couldnt hit opennings for shit, he had nothing behind his stikes, and his footwork was good if he was drunk.
The guy learns to disengage after a combo and all a sudden people think he is a good striker.
Throwing sloppy punches/kicks and then evading counterattacks is still an improvement from throwing sloppy punches/kicks and then taking hits to the face. His mentality obviously changed from what it was during the Stephan Bonnar fight. Instead of thinking, "I'm gonna go in there swinging and who cares if I get hit, I'm tough" hes now thinking, "I'm gonna go in there get off a few shots and get out before he retaliates". I never said he was a good striker, i just said he improved; And that he's starting to try and take after Machida.
Tatame is now confirming with info from Rudimar
and Jardine has confirmed he is fighting Liddell
so they are killing forrest's career off already, damn
fuck i want soccer kicks and stomps
