You used "ate his soul" a couple of times... other than that this was a cool read. Brings back memories, back then I was a Franklin fan, and now I just want a repeat, including the rearranged face. I bet Franklin's plastic surgeon has front row tix!

Of course I did, were you expecting an essay on how UFC 64 cured poverty with the help of Rich Franklin's broken nose?

There were a lot of souls eaten at this event. So it's justified. Shao Kahn will eat your soul next for nitpicking.

I was at the bar for this event...hahahaha...in south west Ohio...HAHA...boy that was crazy watchin homeboy get his nose rearranged and listening to everyone in the bar go nuts. I thought it was gonna be a MUCH closer fight than that. I knew Anderson was an alright fighter from what I saw in PRIDE and Cage Rage, but at the time NOBODY though he was gonna destroy Rich the way he did. I don't care what anyone wants to say now, but nobody at THAT time predicted Anderson to completely destroy Rich Franklin. People were calling him a PRIDE reject until that fight. I can still see all the sad Ohioan faces from that day. Such a travesty. Everyone walking out of the bar kickin empty pop cans, mumbling to themselves "man what the ****, what the **** Rich"


(Much like me after Liddell/Jardine)

i called Silva to win that fight.... in the 3rd or 4th round....

I completely agree though that nobody can say right now that they knew it was going to be a steam roll through for Silva ....what the **** Rich?

Oh yea, there were people who picked Silva to win, but nobody ever thought it would be a complete destruction like that. And the horrible memories of his destroyed nose plagued us for days after that.

One can hope that Okami pounds MacDonald. I really see it playing like the Rory Singer fight. The hilarious thing was that MacDonald was getting outstruck by Rory Singer. MacDonald is also really terrible about setting up his takedowns. If anybody is going for the takedown, it's Okami.

And thanks for digging the re-watches.

Wink

All this talk of soul taking is reminding me of a picture in the fight. Silva had Franklin in the Thai clinch along the cage, and Rich's mouth is wide open with his eyes in the back of his head. No photoshop on it either. Anderson was like Lo Pan or some shit. I've been failing at tracking it down.

edit: title was a mistake btw
