    That is a very pathetic excuse.
    Even if he thought that his performance was bad and he lost the fight, he should have had 2 fucking cojones and stay and wait for the decision, and if indeed it is a loss then accept the loss like a man.

    Also it was the last fight of Tito Ortiz, that as unlikeable as he is, he is a "legend" of the UFC.
    Forrest acted in a very disrespectful way.

    Someone said that since the Anderson fight, Forrest has not been the same.
    It is maybe true, but it is understandable. It is hard to remain the same person after you have suffered the biggest humiliation in UFC history.

    I don't think Forrest had any bad intentions whatsoever in his actions. I'm quite sure when he left the cage he was not hoping for the camera to follow him around with Rogan talking about him as well.

    I liked the interview part it was something different and unique for a change. It saved me having to listen to Rogan for a few minutes which was nice as I'm liking the job he does less every ppv I watch.

    Tito can complain all he wants but in this karma paid him back.

Joe still could have done an interview with Tito after he finished with Forrest who had nothing but good things to say about Tito. It's too bad Tito and the rest of you didn't take it the same way
    I believe he intended for it to be a nice thing to do, but it didn't come off that way, that's what people are saying.

    There's an article on MMAFighting about how this was karma for Tito, and it makes a decent point. Tito has been a douchebag to a lot of fighters, the Coleman thing especially comes to mind because he was retiring as well. I've never liked Tito, I know he's good to his fans, but he's always seemed like a prick at heart, always making excuses, too big of an ego - I still don't like what happened to him, but you can argue he deserved it.

    I've heard a shitload of "Forrest's a dickhead" stories, but this one really writes him off for me.

    Yeah I don't think Forrest's intentions were bad at all. I think he was kind of trying to rejoice with Tito, if you will, with it being the end of their trilogy and being another close fight. I'm not sure why he decided to do it, though. lol I mean every thing would have went more smoothly if Forrest would have just let things go on the normal way, but I don't really care either way.

    the whole after fight happenings were just very odd to me...this running out of the cage business is pretty juvenile imo. and the whole interviewing tito thing, just seemed really more like a gimmick than a sincere one. who the fuck wants to be interviewed by the guy you just lost to??

    It was just soooo bizarre, we did make a ton of jokes about it though, I'm not really a fan of either fighter, and Tito made his name as a badboy... So I appreciate the irony. Haha. But it really uncalled for.
