The only reason people would vote for Ninja Rua is if you hate UFC fighters and love PRIDE fighters just like Kameleon, Moldy errrhmmmm.

Come on people, you say Rich Franklin can beat Dan Henderson but not Murilo Rua. This is terrible. Murilo Rua was KO'd in 15 seconds by Denis Kang and you still think he could beat Franklin? And he was dominated by Filho but no he can still beat Franklin since hes faught in higher weight classes. And did I mention how badly Dan Henderson killed Murilo Rua?

Judging this post, you have never seen Denis Kang at Bushido 11 knock out Ninja Rua in 15 seconds.

I only saw Rua fight once and I thought he sucked, he was soft and out of shape and got pounded with sick body shots before he took one on the chin and crumpled to the mat. There is absolutley no way that guy could beat Franklin. That clown would need a machine gun, brassknuckles and a machete and I would still pick Rich Franklin to kick his ass and finish him inside three minutes.

Agreed, why do people think he can beat Franklin? Just because he has faught in hire weight classes then Franklin has? Thats not how it works people. And no jdun11, he did not make Kharitonov bleed, Kharitonov annihilated him and nearly killed him with that KO. My brother hates PRIDE and saw that and thought it was sick and awesome. Has anyone seen Bushido 11? If you have you would have voted Franklin for sure. Murilo Rua lost to Denis Kang in 15 SECONDS. Franklin I think can have his way with Denis Kang. Get a grip people.

I think Franklin is the most complete fighter in the UFC. He is by far the best middle weight in the world. Obviously, my opinion and I am sure some do not agree. I can't wait for him to get tired of beating these nobodies and step up to LHW and get that belt too. I think there are only two more complete fighters than Ace and they are Pride HW (Nog and Fedor). Has anyone held two belts at the same time.

BTW, who has beat ace??

Yeah, well I don't agree with your opinion either. Ryoto Machida has beaten Ace in 3 minutes at a Japanese house show. But he is an undefeated and the next big thing. Franklin can't take the light heavyweight belt when it has a division of guys Franklin would lose to such as Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz. But I do agree he can woop Ninja Rua in under a minute. Come on Denis Kang beat Ninja in 15 seconds.
