Can someone give me a run down on what Forrest did after the Tito fight?
I saw him take the mic, and I think interview him or something? I didn't really get what was going on and forgot to ask at the time.
The fight went to a decision. I had Tito winning, Tito obviously thought he had won and I'm quite sure Forrest did too. Forrest left the octagon and started making his way towards the exit to get backstage. Rogan was saying "WTF is doing?" and he mentioned that Dana was running after him (Dana said afterward that he chased him down and told him something along the lines of "WTF are you thinking? Get the **** back in there").
Forrest returned to the octagon seemed like he was anticipating a loss when Buffer was about to announce the decision. Surprisingly, it turned out that the judges scored the bout in Forrest's favour. Forrest said some BS about he had thought he won the fight but he wanted to give the spotlight to Tito and that's why he left. It's obviously complete and utter lies because he proceeded to steal Tito's final minutes of spotlight when Rogan wanted to interview him afterward. His excuse for that is that he thought it would be "special" if a fighter interviewed a fighter in his last fight.
It was sentimental for Tito because he said that he was looking forward to Rogan's final interview as Rogan was there after his first fight in the UFC and had interviewed him way back then. Forrest later apologized at the press conference and said he wasn't thinking straight.
