Plus Rich's record as I stated in later posts isn't very impressive while Anderson has many more impressive victories.
I posted that, Nate BEFORE he got clobbered by Franklin was considered a top 10 p4p fighter. Maybe you weren't a die-hard fan at that time but he was the #1 contender in the UFC MW division coming off of some impressive victories. I don't know what you are watching but the real MMA fans know that Rivera is a world class striker.

Nate Quarry would murder your boy McDonald, That fight wouldn't make it out of the 1st round. Franklin was toying with JMack in that fight, he could have finished him alot earlier IMO.

Silva is the champ, so he is officialy the best MW in the world. I think Franklin will take him out, regain his belt and his #1 spot on the p4p list.

Rich is going to put Silva in a World of Hurt.

I'm starting to think you aren't a troll just horribly mis informed. Nate Quarry was never on anyone who knows MMA's Top 10 p4p fighter list. Yes he was the #1 contender in the ufc MW divison when there were no real contenders. He beat Shonie Carter, and Pete Sell who both are pretty good but nothing special. Stop talking about Macdonald since He isn't even my favorite fighter. and Also No one thinks Jorge Rivera is a top striker so please stop talking about these real mma fans the people on sherdog forum aren't real mma fans. IF you aren't a troll I'm sorry but Jorge Rivera isn't a top striker and Nate Qurray wasn't a top 10 P4P fighter.

Could you please explain to me what a diehard fan is? I mean you keep throwing that around like it means something and I am just wondering what it is?

Sorry dude but when you get ko'ed by the likes of A. Silva, Chris "Catsmasher" Leben, and Terry "I KO fools" Martin you aren't a worldclass striker, punching bag maybe, but not striker. Not to mention most of your KO wins are against ground guys then I know your not world class striker.

I am not sure who would win, it could be a good fight. But why knock JMac when your talking about Franklin?

The only thing I agree with is that YES, people do forget how good Franklin is sometimes, but that can be said for all fighters after they lose a fight or two. Yeah, he beat Tanner twice, but when you bring up the fact that Franklin was sick and what not against Silva you have to also bring up the fact that Tanner had a drinking problem back then and he even said he came into fights sometimes after a drink or two, so we might as well take Tanner off your list of good fighters he has beaten then if we're going with that logic. DeWees.....do I really need to even say anything about him, he isn't bad, but he isn't good either, he is just ok. I've NEVER seen Rivera considered one of the best strikers in the world. Quarry is/was a good fighter and that was a good win for Franklin. As far as Shamrock goes, both Rich and Tito faught him when he was way past his prime and should've retired. Loiseau was a good fighter and that was a good win for Rich. Okami for some reason didn't even show up for their fight until the end of the third round. MacDonald is a good ground fighter, but he was nowhere near ready to fight someone at the top of the ladder. The list pretty much does NOT go on, because the only other fighters worth mentioning beat him. Don't get me wrong, Rich is great, but he is nowere near the best P4P MW in the world. You have guys like Frank Shamrock, Anderson Silva, Filho, Lindland, Henderson, etc... that I think are much better than Franklin.

Who are these hardcore fans that you speak of and where do you come off telling anyone on here who is and who isn't a real fan just because they don't agree with you. Does thinking Franklin isn't the best MW make me less of a fan??? Give me a break

That doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Off the heels of a huge loss to Silva, if anything, you'd see a more conservative Franklin, yet at the same time, a fighter out to make a statement, and get back much needed credibility. His mindset was that of controlling MacDonald, not toying with him.
