    OMG! HHAAAHAA! Look at Forrest’s face! That can’t be a real pic! That has been photo shopped, right? I used to have a formula that I would use and it went like this: HFDF = Head and Facial Deformity Factor and it would be on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the most deformity produced by a strike. The way you would determine this is by a picture, like the one above, or in a video where you had the capability of using slow motion to get to a particular video frame and freeze the video and then determine how much deformity was caused by the strike by looking at the receiver of the strike and studying his face and/or head to see how odd it looked or misshapen from the punch or kick or whatever type of strike. I bring this up because the picture reminds me of the Forrest/Keith Jardine fight where the Dean first rocks Forrest. If you study that tape or video, when Forrest is punched by Keith, Griffin’s head and face actually morph into what looks like Alfred E. Neuman. It is friggin hilarious. Another great example is the Wanderlei/Fujita fight. Fujita’s face is transformed into a cartoon character.
