Ninja Rua Vs Rich Franklin

I Was Thinking About Great Matchups Between Pride Fighters And Ufc Guys, And This One Just Sounds Great To Me..slugfest From Start To Finish..everyone Always Talks About Ace Vs Hendo, But I Think This Fight Would Be More Exciting..i Think Ninja Is The Better Striker And I Think He Beats Ace..thats Saying Alot Cuz Ace Is My Man!!

That would be a very good fight but I think Rua would still win. I would love to see that fight.

Rua

Ace is an incredible fighter and a perfect poster boy for Dana white, so white would know to protect him from the beating Rua would give him. Isn't Rua in a heavier weight class though? Machida beat the crap out of Franklin, so would Rua. Sorry Ace, but your heart and grit ain't enough to beat Rua. Not to mention, who was the toughest guy Franklin ever beat? Evan Tanner, Loiseau, Quarry? Great fighters, but nothing compared to Rua. A better question would be Liddell vs. Nogueira? Although Nogueira probably has 30 lbs on Liddell...not too fair.

Rua is heavier then ace. But ace has fought at that weight. He beat shamrock at that weight. Rua would beat ace.

Ninja Rua has faught in all kinds of weight classes but Anderson Silva is way better than him. I think Franklin will beat Silva therefore I think Franklin could beat Rua.

Wait a second!!!!

For some reason I was thinking you meant Mauricio the "Shogun" Rua. Not Murilo. I take back what I said...Franklin would beat that bytch's ass. And I agree with Rush, even anderson silva is better than the Ninja. I thought you meant the Shogun. He would kick the crap out of Franklin. The little ninja girl scout has lost like 4 out of his last 5 fights. The shogun is the real deal though, if only he didn't have that freak accident in the Coleman fight where he broke his arm on an awkward fall.

NO I MEANT NINJA..SHOGUN WOULD KILL ACE..BUT I STILL THINK NINJA IS A GREAT STRIKER MOST OF HIS LOSSES ARE AGAINST HUGE GUYS..HE HUNG IN THERE AND BLOODIED UP KHARITONIV, AND HES 6'4 230..NINJA USUALLY FIGHTS AT AROUND 200, BUT ITS A SLOPPY 200..IF HE GOT DOWN TO 185 I THINK HE WOULD BE AWESOME..I ALSO THINK HES BETTER THAN ANDERSON SILVA..GO TO YOUTUBE AND WATCH A NINJA HIGHLIGHT VIDEO, HES PRETTY GOOD DUDE

Shogun Rua is one of the best light heavyweights ever and Franklin moved down because he couldn't dominate as a light heavyweight. Therefore Rua would own Franklin. Murilo Rua on the other hand would be owned by Franklin. Hes pretty terrible. Did anyone see Kharitonov almost kill him? Franklin would do the same thing except not punch him over the head. The only reason people would vote for Ninja Rua is if you hate UFC fighters and love PRIDE fighters just like Kameleon, Moldy errrhmmmm.
