He'll be remembered as a great fighter who came as close as anyone has to dethroning one of the greatest of all time. Nothing more (for the time being), nothing less.

Frankly, it's more than most fighters could ever hope for.

Chael will be remembered as a fighter who backed up a lot of his talk. He still dominated the first round, but Anderson Silva is the greatest ever for a reason. Chael talks A LOT of shit, but he also beats a ton of ass. So hopefully he keeps fighting as I think he still makes a tough fight for anyone, AS included, at MW.

Maybe a Sonnen vs Franklin fight to see who gets a third shot?

I'll remember him as:

1.) A guy who went over the line promoting a fight and brought out the worst in people.

2.) A damn good mma wrestler who's great at forcing others to play his game.

3.) A guy whose jiu jitsu is somewhat underrated (I feel like he's gone through a murderers row of grapplers).


All in all he earned his paycheck last night and I wish him nothing but luck.

I don't think Franklin or Chael should fight Silva again. Not until a fair few others have had their moment. That said, Franklin vs. Sonnen is a given, if not only to see who the legitimate number two MW is.

I'll remember him as the most overrated fighter of all time in the UFC who couldn't beat an injured Silva while being roided up, who subsequently gets destroyed and embarassed in the rematch.

The fighter that got the closest to defeating the P4P King of our generation.

He'll be remembered as the only person to actually call out Silva, have the nerve to berate him as a fighter but also on a personal level but also come the closet to beating the greatest "Middleweight" of all the time at his peak

P4P King......No

Greatest Middleweight of all time.....More appropriate

There's no such thing as a P4P rankings in MMA hardly ever do the best of each weight classes fight each other

A really nice guy who knew how to sell a fight.
A guy who knew how to troll fans by saying ridiculously funny shit that got under many peoples skin who couldn't take a joke.
The only guy to come SO close to legitimately beating the greatest MMA fighter of all time.
A guy who brought in a lot of MMA media attention.
A wrestler who never stopped his pace.
