WHO THE FACK wants to stand there with this guy??

Well hopefully Franklins learned his lesson and will take him down ASAP in this fight.

As for his attitude, that stupid guitar twang thing he does after a win makes me with I had the parts to try and knock his ass out lol
See Newton Vs Silva. Shoot = cross eyes.

I can't wait to see Anderson Silva tear Rich Franklin's face up again. Once Franklin loses he's going to be totally demoralized and will consider leaving the MW division. Anderson Silva will knock Franklin out senseless via knees in first round.

You know who would be the strongest opponent to fight Silva? David Loiseau! I'm not sure if he is still training, don;t see him around much, but his fight style matches up best against Silva. Loiseau also brings two more things to the table - fierce elbows in the clinch and he's stronger than Silva.

I like to think that Rich will be prepared enough to avoid a replay of their last fight. It's funny to see so many people so sure that the same thing is going to happen. Wait and see.

i think people keep forgetting that even though rich nearly got murdered in their first fight, he still a great fighter. He is smart not to just let the same thing happen that happened in the first fight.

Go RICH!

I dont think that the same thing will happen but im still fairly certian that Silva will win, most likely by knockout. Also im pretty sure that if Rich is going to get dominated we will know the minute he walks into the octagon (before the fight even). If he has the same look on his face that he did last time around we know that its over already.

If Rich is able to frustrate Silva and take this to the later rounds, I can definitely see him winning. I'm just very skeptic on Rich's mental condition going into this fight. He got thoroughly destroyed in the first fight and he did not look very comfortable watching Silva dismantle Nate.

I just watched the first fight again and I saw how silva dominated him and imposed his style at will. I predict the same thing will happen because Silva is just that damn good.
