You see things completely different than me! And back in the Day Rich was a REAL champion, things have moved on a bit from them, but at the time he was a great Champion.
He's been the champ in the hardest weight class in the UFC for all these fights, what he has done is unbelievable IMO.
People tend to forget that in early 2006, the superfight of the ages was Rich Franklin Vs Chuck Liddell... now they're both "overrated"... please. Sports fans in general are so predictable and fickle. Just appreciate what these men are doing in their time.
Regardless of UFC 162, Anderson will go down as the greatest of all time. Today's children will be told tales of the days of watching Anderson Silva fight... same with Fedor, same with Jones, same with Shogun, and even that jack ass Rampage, among many others.
