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.

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.

That's how every sport is, more money and publicity attracts better talent. I know it's hard to emotionally accept the fact that your "heroes" aren't the best, but get over it.
What an ignorant statement. Competition evolves and gets better in every sport. The old guard losing to the new doesn't take anything away from what they accomplished in their time. If it worked that way everybody would suck but the current champions.
