[QUOTE=MMA1990]I really like Rich Franklin but theres a big changes he's gonna loose his title to Silva.

I agree!!.....To be out of the game for as long as Franklin has and to come back and fight a killer like Silva does not put the odds in Franklins corner. Plus he broke his hand last time on Louseau's knoggin. Champion or not, I guarantee there's going to be some head games going on there. You have to wonder if he might pull back on some of his punches. I might hear about it for this but you do have to wonder.......

Your boy Cheick Kongo looks impressive from what I've seen. If he works his way up the UFC heavyweight ranks (which may not take long) he could be a decent challenger. I just wish UFC would fill out the heavyweight division like Pride.

Franklin/Silva. Can't wait to see this fight. Killer matchup: 2 guys who love to throw. Hope Franklin has a good chin though... Anderson Silva Highlight - Google Video

I dissagree I think he will still come out of the fight as the champ. he is at a whole differint levele than leban is. leban just rushed in and has no skill what so ever just a good chin and hevvy hands. but rich is a good fighter he has good foot work good strikes ect. hues is getting a little aragant he will lose to GSP. I have met rich before he is dedicated and he never underestimates anyone. he will be holding the belt for a long time.

I think Sylvias the worst champ by far but due to lack of competiotion other than Arlovski whome he wont fight again Tim wont lose the belt anytime soon IMO. i think Matt will lose the belt to GSP and Rich will defend his against Anderson.

I agree that Franklin will beat Silva even though the ring-rust issue is a real one. Franklin can definitely throw some heavy leather but he is a well rounded fighter and very tough (ask the Crow, how tough). I could see Franklin taking Silva to the mat and submitting him. Franklin has about a 3" reach on Silva and does not lead with his chin so Silva will have none of the advantages that he had against Leben.

I give up thinking Hughes is going to lose the belt! I just don't have the strength anymore because I've been let down to many times! The man is resilant, he'll always find a way to get out of a tough situation and beat the other guy to death! I like GSP, but I don't see him winning!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
