I predict another UD for Franklin. Or maybe a 5th round stoppage if silva gases because I am sure rich wont run out of gas.
Franklin should still be decently ranked. He has an awesome record and his only losses were to Forrest Griffin, Vitor Belfort, Dan Henderson (many thought he won that fight), Lyoto Machida and Andersn Silva x2. He is still very competitive so I don't get why people talk as if his career is over.
I think the talk is because LHW class is just too big for him and with Silva and Sonnen ruling the MW class he dosent have a place there either. So his career isnt over and there are many people he can beat the remainder of his career is going to lack luster.
I consider him a high ranked fighter my favorite fighter and I will always cheer him on, but to be realistic the chances of him becoming champ again are slim.
