i disagree, franklin cant hang with silva standing up. It will come down to wheather silva can get him to the ground and keep him there.

Silva had double knee surgery 11 weeks before the Lutter fight and hadn't fully recover yet. So he would still destroy Rich in the first round. Go to mma news.com (Don't use a space though the thing is being stupid) and go to more UFC headlines and you will find it there because it won't let me paste the site.

Won't be a first round win for either of them. If Rich comes in with a good game plan and counter punches instead of attacking I can see him winning, that or GnP.

I'm sorry but your post is ridiculous. Anderson Silva's striking is better "by a little bit"? Silva's striking is far better than Silva's and Silva also has a black belt in BJJ. Franklins ground game and striking are both worse than Silvas (i.e. result from 1st fight)

I'm sorry to tell you all, but Nate Marquardt is going to be your MW Champ in July. So, we should all be talking about how great the Marquardt vs. Franklin fight is going to be. That will be a war. If Franklin wins then you can talk about Silva vs. Franklin 2, but I think Marquardt vs. Franklin will be the best fight of the year. It will happen, you heard it from me first.

Marquardt will lose to Anderson Silva.

Well even if Anderson does lose the title, that doesnt mean that Anderson and Rich ain't going to have a rematch.

I think Rich will take the second match for sure, he can learn from what happened in October and build a plan around it.

If Franklin can take him down like lutter did, and you give Franklin an opportunity to mount you..........he wont throw it away in some shitty half-ass arm-bar attempt. He is going to rearrange your teeth.

I cant see Rich ever having problems with the clinch like he did in that first match. I can see him getting caught with the knee, but only that "one" big knee not repetitive strikes like you saw.

Rich is very good at GnP. If your really good at that you know how to avoid the typical BBJ submissions.

I still say Rich will win, but I dont think it will be easy just because of the mental factor.
