I remember seeing Forrest back in the day @ a NAGA tournament. He was already a superstar back then. The final was between him and Roberto Traven. Forrest won on points but it was not really fair. Roberto tried to jump guard and Forrest shrugged him off and points were awarded for a takedown. The crowd started booing. I don't remember what Forrest said but he looked up at the crowd and responded with something like "hey, I ain't the ref. Don't be mad at me".

Soon after he became a super duper star. He is known for his work ethic and I am happy it paid off for him. He seems like a legitimately cool person. I hear his book is good too.
