Who is the Number 2 Middleweight in the World of MMA?
I was thinking Sivla for the moment is untouchable. So who is #2 in the MMA world?

Paulo Fihlo
Robbie Lawler
Yushin Okami
Patrick Cote
Rich Franklin
Dan Henderson
Other, Who?

Don't know how to post a poll. I tried to, but it didn't work.

I'd say Franklin but he's moving up to Light Heavyweight.

It's a toss up between Fihlo and Cote, but I'd also toss Akiyama into the mix.

I would say Henderson. I was never impressed with Fihlo, but I've only watched 2 or 3 of his fights. I'd like to see Lawler fight Anderson, he seems to have an extremely good chin.

Hendo for sure, he just had some bad luck.

Either Hendo, Franklin or Filho. Neither have faught so I cant say one or the other. Franklin vs Hendo would RULE!!!!!

Hendo just hasn't impressed me at MW. He looks much more dominant at LHW.

I would say without a doubt Rich is number 2. Filho and Okami would be my next two. Just look at Rich's record though on wikipedia, soooooo much green except for those anderson silvas.

Henderson at MW doesn't do it for me. The dude is way more bad ass when he fights at LHW. Look at the Henderson vs. Rampage fight, that was a Henderson that went 5 rounds and looked solid each round. Henderson vs. Silva, looked like he gassed early and couldn't keep up with the pace. While he was MW/WW in PRIDE, he wasn't consistent and didn't look like the beast that he was a weight class up.

Fihlo or Franklin. Hendo hasn't done much in a while at MW.

Probably Filho or Franklin but I haven't seen enough of Filho to decide either way,

ThaFranchise 07-31-2008 08:28 AM

Franklin or write in candidate Jacare!
