Anderson Silva is not a big Deal. Why ? I tell u.
You know it's been in my mind after Rich won the title from Evan Tanner,
you know after tanner became a champion, i Think UFC did not want him to remain champion you know why ? cause he is expensive fighter, and each fight cost a lot for ufc in compare with rich franklin at that time.
and i donno why rich drop down to middleweight and exactly after it he got a title shot ? his last fight was ken shamrock ? true ??? it was not at middle weight. so how the **** they give him title shot in his first middle weight ? why he dropdown to middleweight ?? the only reason my mind is tanner lost one fight to franklin and rich is a very tough fighter too, and they tought he can get that title from evan cause evan knows that he lost a fight to rich and it effects his mind too....and as i know rich has a eight fight contract with low price that he respected it till now,
but after rich became champion : please look at his fights ...
Nathan Quarry : the winner of TUF, not a class A fighter.
David Loiseau : he is very high class fighter but look at his fight with tanner in UFN 2 , if not for his nasty elbows , you can guess what happen to that fight...he had nothing in that fight..too many take downs by tanner...and also look at his current fight with swick...
in two first rounds he had nothing to show..if u take his elbows ability from him he will kiss goodbye fighting forever...
Anderson Silva : one fight in UFC , he is a good fighter but who he won in his last fighter : Chris Leben : i dont tell u about him cause you know him
i dont say Silva is not a good fighter but t they try to show that he is very very good fighter(very better than the fighter he is..)..and i know he has nothing to show against rich franklin..and ufc will enjoy other fight with rich as champion with low salary..
finally i wanted to tell this :
can we compare rich franklin fights after he became champion with tanner fight after he became champion ??
why they did not bring chuck liddle in middleweight and put him against rich ??
he can easily become middleweight too...(just an example...)
how the **** you fight in lightheavyweight and suddenly they give you title shot in middle weight ??
I am rich franklin FAN too as a fighter, but there is many things that i wanted to share...
sorry for my bad english...but plz drop some idea here...
