i think that franklin will come out really strong in this next fight, i see him doing well but unfortunatley for him i think silva will catch him.

but i wouldnt say the guy would be out, he would just be out of title contention for a long time, it`s possible that he`ll never get it back if he does lose, but that doesnt mean he`ll drop down the ranks, he`ll be a force to reckon with for a while i think.

Do you ever make any posts that aren't just talking shit? Tanner and Crow weren't washed up at all and had good records and were great fighters. Same with Okami, he's a great fighter too. Are you just upset that Rich beat them all? McDonald was supposed to be the next up and comer in line for the title until he got smashed by Ace.

Don't be an idiot.

MacDonald was an upcoming guy in the UFC, with nice wins over Herman & Leben. Franklin was fighting him when he (Macdonald) was getting to be more known to the crowd. Rich, of course, stomped Maccy D, sending him back to the middle pack.

Tanner's a guy who actually got better with age. I ask, how, in the world, was Tanner washed up when he was MW champion, with solid wins over Baroni, Lawler, & Terrell? Rich slowly and brutally picked Evan Tanner apart, and that was a really nice win, probably Rich's best win currently.

Loiseau was becoming more popular with the UFC crowd and was coming off a nice win over Tanner. Being buds with GSP helped him a lot. Well, you know the deal, Rich battered him for 5 rounds, turning him into a space alien.

Okami has wins over Swick, Belcher, and Starnes. He was definitely becoming more known with those wins.

So, I'd say those were some nice big name wins. Not everybody has to be Fedor-status, you know.

That is right AA lost twice to Sylvia and III was a close decision not in his favour...

Oh shit not a good example.

Is Rich loses, I wouldn't mind seeing keep fighting in the UFC at 185.

If Rich wins...still an odd situation because Silva has proved he smashes on everyone.

Franklin lose against Silva and go away most likely not. Win or lose he's still my fav. do i see him winning ...nope. but I can hope. Franklin has a great talent but Silva has excellent talent man this is not a good fight for Rich @ all. It makes me laugh about all the Hate for the guy when he wins all the time, doesn't talk alot of s*** and gets bashed here on a regular basis.WTF I'm startin' to think there are more Franklin haters than Cheeto and Cheetos a f***stik.

Feelings ... What are those?
Neg. rep me all you want, not leavin' your name, thats a b***h move.

Fav. Fighters
Rich Franklin

i think rich will take this one.....nothing against anderson hes a great competitor....but i like going for the underdog....while the rest of you are counting him out

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.
