Perty good

Yeah, I was rooting for Rich but I knew Silva was dangerous. And boy was he?!? In the slo mos, you could pretty much see his nose break, cool stuff. Kenny Florian was much more resilient than I thought but it went as I figured with Sherk dominating with the wrestling.

How could you be so definitive in your decision that Silva was going to win. Were you just going off the Leben fight? or have you seen Silva fight in the past.

If your going off the Leben fight than your just guessing. Leben is way overratted & he never tucks his chin & he always drops his hands.

Franklin leads with his head down & throws roundhouses which leave him suceptible to accurate punches which Silva has....

Just throwing out the 2 cents. If you can backup your prediction than I'm all about it....

No, the Muscle Shark/KenFlo was worth it. One of the bloodiest in UFC history! It looked like a chinchilla exploded in the middle of the ring or something out of one of the Saw movie sequels.

It seemed Rich should have put on a better show ... I said this in a previous forum, Franklin seemed scared walking to the Octagon, he wasn't himself. Looking at his competition in the past, he has not really beat "a" level competition but still the Vegas oddmakers had him a solid favourite ... this whole thing just proves that the UFC and Pride should try to come together a bit more because the pools of talent should really be intermingled more. Everyone thought Rich was the sh*t but he was exposed very easily .. we need more world class fighters in UFC to give it credibility

All I have to say is wow.. from looking at Silva's record and some of the video on youtube... He definately has great skill. I didn't think he'd walk over Franklin that easy. I agree that Franklin looked timid in the ring. I really wonder if he was 100% ready to go. from my observation, I would have to say no... it's going to be hard for Silva to win over the american crowd when he doesn't speak english.. I guess he'll just let his fighting talk for him. very impessive.


Over all.. some good and some bad bouts. the Sherk/Florian fight went longer than I thought.. I was looking for Sherk to dominated and finished it early.. but hats off the Florian.. the guy can defend well and must have a razor blades embeded in his elbows.
