As well as a definite evolution of skill, forrest definately profited from his concrete head in this fight- there were at least 3 shots that rocked him significantly, but his ability to recover and clear his head is bordering on unnatural.
Keeping Rampage at range is easier said than done, and he deserves major props for managing it, and from there, those leg kicks were just awesome- another point- how many body and head kicks did he try?! The fact that rampage never read any of them shows how much Griffin was enforcing his gameplan on the fight.

Joe 'Daddy' Stevenson continues to impress.
Kotchek continues to emulate Ortiz in more than just hair colour (when its not stained with blood!
