It will take someone with fantastic ground work, like Dean Lister, but with more explosiveness to his standing game. I am not sure who it would be, but it would be someone unexpected. I would like to see Rich now go up to 205 and fight Chuck, just to see who would win... would certainly be interesting. Maybe he would want a win under his belt before doing such a move though, just to help confidence.

So a stand up guy with as much pride as Rich decided to agree to a fixed fight, have his ribs bashed in and knees to the face breaking his nose??? Not likely bro lol.

Exactly. Think of how much trouble he's gonna have to go through to get that nose fixed. Not only that but Rich was the fan favorite by FAR, so how would working him to get beat satisfy the fans?

im gonna either go with rory singer or my mom. these would be great match ups i think..lmao..i dont think anyone in the mw div right now can see him. i hope after he destroys whoever tuf spits out they line a fight up with franklin..because from now til then we arent going to stop hearing about why franklin lost. i'll probably disembowel myself by then, since it probably wont be until super bowl weekend.

If his injuries were that severe, he should have pulled a Frank Mir and relinquished the title.

Im not Pride or UFC bias. But Ill say I honestly dont think Silvas losses in Pride meaning anything right now. Right now I think he would beat anyone in Pride.

Franklin will probably beat a can, then Chris Leben(Hmmm, another can?), then challenge Silva again.

All this, while Marquardt watches as his title train passes him by again. Cursed for having a soul sucking match with Salaverry.
