Loses by a horrible (t)ko and then gets a weird stoppage by corner win over an up and comer then goes to decision with Okami. Meanwhile Anderson is killing everybody in his path.
He's only had two fights go to decision and one was a 5 round beating of The Crow.

What more does he need to do? The guy loses one fight in four years and two all together, and people say he can deliver.

He has FINISHED 20 FIGHTS out of 22 wins.

11 BY (T)KO
9 BY SUBMISSION.

Just get a grip.

Alright, I don't base my opinion on somebodies last fight, I base it on there last 3 or 4 fights because fighters do change. Here is what I see in 4 fights.
a decision win over DL.
A horrible unimpressive loss (when he was REALLY hyped)
An odd, corner stoppage that wasn't even impressive but he was coming out of a KO loss so it wasn't a huge deal. Even though it was a lower tier guy.
A decision win over another top 10 guy.

I don't see how you see that shows he has a chance against Anderson Silva.
Look at his last 3 or 4

pretty ironic how many crybaby morons there are on this board. Why with the crying about him being spoiled or crybaby? He's just a fighter, goes fights whoever there is in his weight, beast who's ever in the UFC. Obviously that makes him the UFC 185 champ. Arguably a better fighter in Silva comes now, he loses to Silva. Whats the big deal? Does he go hyping himself saying he's better then Silva or everyone else, cry about losing? He's hyped to be what he is(was) UFC185 champ. What's he suppose to do, quit UFC go to brazil like some retards say to prove internet gimps he's uber enough? so many bitter losers here in this thread.

Franklin has faced everyone the UFC has put in front of him. Shamrock wasn't a complete wash and Franklin was fighting at 205. He beat down Terrell at 2 dif weights. Destroyed the crow through 5 rounds even with a severely broken hand starting in the 2nd round. Took the Silva fight and made a few mistakes. Made no excuses and worked to earn his shot again. Nah he ain't no baby, that distinction belongs to a few others that will remain unsaid.

I would personally much rather be Anderson Silva in this sort of situation. Imagine the pressure that is behind Franklin, fighting infront of friends and family. Knowing how fickle UFC fans are if he loses he will probably be booed out of the arena...lol

I think Silva is pretty good, but Franklin could catch him, we all thought GSP would take care of Serra no problem, but you never know, Franklin isn't a slug. I think it will be a longer fight then their first match. Franklin will probably have a different strategy

Why wouldn't you want the best fighter to be the champ? Oh i think i know why is it because rich speaks english and silva doesn't, so how could the ufc promote silva to americans when he can't speak english. IMO i don't care if you can speak english or not, it is whether your a better fighter and right now silva is the better fighter hands down.
Why do you think Tito, Nog's debut and another title fight were on the same card he was main eventing? There's nobody else at 185 with Rich's drawing power. Yeah he's been marketing through the reality show and whatnot, but he's part of getting Anderson more over with a new audience.

But really, wtf are you talking about speaking english and the ufc promoting guys? Look at the previews for their fight on the website even. "If your at 185 and have to fight Anderson Silva....well that sucks".
