    i think that will be a tough fight for forrest, on the feet thiago has good hands and power and on the ground forrest is good but thiago is a belt black, i am going with thiago in this one.

    Yeah, I'm not sure this looks good for Forrest. It will be a good test for him. I really hope Guillard gets stomped.

    i am saying unless forest came up with some serious power improvments in his time off this is not going to end well for him. I want forest to win but I am going to take Silva.
