If Silva vs. Franklin Goes To A Decision...

...will we see another Bisping win? seems very much the same type of setting... hometown hero VS. awkward foreign guy...

what do you think?

P.S.- I know that this fight has relatively LITTLE chance of going to a decision, I KNOW.

uh no. the bisbing hamill fight may have made this even less likely. the ufc will be hounding judges now and reevaluating how they're scoring fights.

Back to the topic, i think that the judges will make the right decision, Bisping got lucky. And this fight will not go to decision.

This fight is completely different, Franklin can actually beat people that are not handed to him. Plus Bisping they are still trying to build up his market where as Franklin has already had his built up. you are comparing an up and coming star with a star.

Franklin also does not need his hometown for him to draw in fans like alot of bispings were/are.

Also these are going to be judges supplied by the athletic commission and not ones the ufc hired.

i highly doubt it will go to a decision. Silva beats out Franklin in striking--by a million miles--and on the ground. I'm not saying Franklin isn't good, but Silva is just in another class of fighter.

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it
