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.
If this fight were happening even two years ago I'd agree with you, but Forrest is done. He just got smacked around by a totally shot fighter. If you listen to his recent interviews, it's pretty clear that the guy is only hanging around in the sport to collect a few more paychecks.
