It's because they're both di#$ks. And finally one of the Dana boys got what's coming to them.... real world competition. I heard much slack about Bj not being prepared but now the situation is reversed where the champ came in unprepared. That's as far as I'll go in comparing the two because rich Franklin is nothing like Matt. He's one slippery champion. Matt has the will to return and reclaim his title but I don't think Franklin is made of the same stuff. I also think Dana is finally coming around by bringing internationally talented fighters to fight his champs, not just reality show winners.

I know this thread is about Franklin but check this JJ tournament between Matt vs Tito...

Franklin's always been touted as a really nice guy, and class act. I fail to see where "He's a jerk!" comes from, unless you're basing him off a reality show with dodgy editing. I think a lot of people are Franklin fans, because he's such a nice guy.

Yeah Franklin's never been known to be a jerk. He's the only UFC champ i respect (and The Muscle Shark). But it was good to finally see one of the champs go down and it was awesome to watch Franklin get dismantled.

Dana knew EXACTLY what would happen - when he signed up Silva, he said "i've just signed the new UFC fans hero".

Not sure why someone would like or a fighter because he's nice. Maybe that would work for his teaching job but it's takes more than being nice to be a UFC champ.

I don't get it either, but people are Franklin fans because he's a class act. People also hate Matt Hughes because he's a prick. It's really a weird case of ignoring their skills, and focusing on their attitude's. I don't care if Matt Hughes clubs baby seals in his offtime, the guy is a good fighter.
