This is a good match-up for Griffin, especially if this a 5 round fight. I hope Sonnen is the betting favorite. I think Griffin takes this.
What you're saying makes sense, and I think a prime Griffin beats a prime Sonnen. But Forrest has looked so **** of late, you'd have to expect him to lose.
I'm wary of picking against you though Rek, as I remember you were right about Nog beating Schaub when everyone was laughing at the chances of that happening (am I remembering this rightly?), so I will reserve my judgement on this one.
