Will Dana White and the Zuffas get their way in the Anderson Silva Rich Franklin fight?

Will Rich Franklin get a bisping-esque decision?

Boxing was a multi-billion dollar industry before it became so obvious to the fans that it was often fixed.

The UFC, still banned in a lot of parts of America and the world, is acting as if they've already secured their legitimacy in the world.

Dana managed to make the UFC a lucrative side-show, but a sideshow nontheless. He is a bit immarture at this point as a mainstream businessman - too petty to ever make the UFC any more legitimate than it currently is.

For as long as Dana continues to behave like a fifth grader they'll make money for a limited while then the UFC will soon become as laughable as pro-wrestling, only without the fan-base.

This fight will not go to the judges. If Silva doesnt knee his face in again, then Rich will TKO or submit him. Thats just how these two fighters are. Rich doesn't look as talented as he once did, I really wasn't impressed in his last win.

And if you think I am just a Rich Franklin hater, check my profile he is my favorite fighter. Beings a cincinnati resident myself, I have always been a fan of his. But now that matt Hammil is actually looking more and more like an mma fighter, I might have to add a second favorite.

The biggest problem is that it happened for free on Spike tv. I think it would have had a little less impact if it was on pay per view. But the reason they do free shows is to gain new fans. There not gonna accomplish by showing this crap. To my knowledge I haven't seen a fight this badly scored since the Clay Guida fight.

Hopefully, Silva won't give them the chance. :-)
