I am sure Silva would probably be able to beat Chonin if they fought again. Just guessing. At first, I was a little mad because I thought that this unexperienced guy came in and knocked out the champ. Now that I searched the web and watched some videos, it looks to me like Silva is the one who has been fighting for a while and was much deserved the belt.

Yeah, I am still in shock about how Silva utterly destroyed Franklin. I admit Franklin looked like he was hurt or scared or something. Maybe he wasn't 100% and just needed the money so he fought anyway. But I don't think a 100% Franklin had any chance againt Silva. Silva is Cujo and Franklin the pink rabbit, so to speak.

Silva is my favorite fighter now. He has the whole package for real! I think Franklin is finished now (or has already been for awhile) and will soon be following Shamrock on that long walk into oblivion.

Right. That's all it takes is for people to open their mind's up and look at the fighters based on ability and not organization affiliation. People making the crazy, even pitiful argument such as Franklin being over confident, etc, etc really had no idea who Silva was before this fight. But Franklin did. He knew what he was in for because he conered Horn's fight with Silva and had seen Silva fight on a number of occasions.

There's no way in the world this man train's like he does, goes out and performs like he does night in and out, but suffers from overconfidence at the same time. Bull shit. Franklin is a professional who has admitted that he has no natural ability other than the skills he has developed over time and that it's his "mental" game that has afforded him the success he's thus far enjoyed.

Just out of curiosity, and I'm not being an asshole here...but what on earth lead you to believe Silva was "unexperienced"?

This goes back to my stupidity Shootboxer,
I thought he was unexperienced for the simple fact that I didn't know who he was which is just ridiculous. I didn't take the time to find out who Silva was and what his history is. In doing so, I was like "oh now I know why Franklin got owned." Lesson learned.

You could actually see it coming ... when you look at who Rich Franklin has beat in the past, it is not really "A" level competition ... still, everyone was going on and on about Franklin being so much stronger than Silva and the Las Vegas odd makers had Franklin a solid favourite ... one look at Rich Franklin's entrance into the Octagon and you knew he was done for ... the dude was scared!

ha ha - you are sooo right, dude, but it was because Rich Franklin was scared before the fight, there was a lot of hype, he didn't look like himself, he was tense, he looked like he had to take a sh*t and no place to go ... maybe he'd put on a better show if he was relaxed but still don't think he has the natural ability to stand with Anderson. Still, fighters usually grow in defeat, I just can't see Rich being champ as long as Anderson Silva is around

Maybe Rich should consider going up to 205 ... I hate to be jumping on the "Anderson Silva" wagon, but I think he'd have a great fight with Chuck and probably f@ck up old Chuck as well

LMAO. Don't feel alone. When I started watching boxing years ago I followed the same line of thought and I learned to use knowledge to gauge my picks in fights based on fighters abilities etc.

If you look at his mental approach and the way he trains it shows that Rich'll be back and better than he was. He knew what he was up against, and will go back to the drawing board to regroup, replan and then rematch. Just like a champion would.

yup, Chuck's only weakness imo is defending the clinch...in his fight against Quinton Jackson, he couldnt stop the barrage of knees and was stopped...Anderson is a better Muay Thai fighter, better standup fighter, probably a better grappler than QJ....i'd prefer to see Chuck fight QJ first to see if hes dealt with this problem and to see him rectify one of his biggest losses...

but, yea, Anderson's the man...Curitiba puts out some great fighters...
