Forrest was unable to make the right adjustments in the fourth and fifth, as Takam continued to fight his fight. Forrest was not busy enough and wasn't landing many flush punches. Takam was letting his hands go in the sixth and there wasn't much coming from Forrest in return.

Takam's right side of his face was swollen, possibly a fracture from the head clash. Forrest was going for the knockout, landing some decent shots, but unable to do enough hurt to put the veteran down.
