Silva Vs. Franklin. It's On Baby!!!!!!!

This is gonna be the best damn fight since Bonnar vs Forrest I !!!!!! Rich is my favorite fighter right now, but I honestly have NO clue who's gonna have their arm raised after THIS one. When you honestly have no idea who's gonna win, that's what makes for an exciting fight.

Let's Bang!

This is a damn exciting fight.


A) Silva KO's Rich within 2 rds....if he hasn't by the 3rd...Rich has him figured out and....

B) Rich wins by a decisive UD.

I'm backing Rich but Silva has long and dangerous strikes. Rich likes to bang abit, he may think he's backed out of danger and wham! a high kick or a hook to the head.

This fight can go 3 ways , 1 Franklin subs Silva. 2. Silva KO's Rich 3. JUDGES DECISION

its a tough call < Rich Franklin dished out alll that he could against David Louiseau and wasnt able to finish him , even on the ground Loiseau gave up his back a couple times and Rich wasnt able to submit him

Silva is a killer on his feeet , Rich has proven in the past that he can be dropped/rocked by fighters who arent even primary strikers (evan tanner) Silva is world class striker , i thinnk it wil be a close fight through rds 1-3 but i think at soemtime in that 15 mins Silva will catch Franklin and finish up. new champion

Silvas a great fighter, but I wouldnt go as far as saying this is one of the best fights ever. Sure Silva has a good chance of winning but so does every other number one contender. To me this is no more intriguing than Chuck/Babalu

Did you forget that Rich messed up his hand in the second round against David Loiseau. It is hard to pull off submissions when you have a broken hand. I am pretty sure that he messed up his ankle in that fight as well. I say Rich will win this fight by a UD. Nothing against Silva, but anyone that can win a fight with a broken hand through three rounds will be hard to beat.
