I'll give you a hint.

It wouldnt be Nate Marquardt (who couldnt beat Rich Franklin), and it wouldnt be Mike Swick (who also couldnt beat Rich Franklin)...

We saw what Silva did to Franklin, I think the only thing that can beat Silva at this point is age.

Even if when I'm sure Franklin gets his rematch, and he'll be more hungry and focused, I still dont think there's any way of him defeating Silva.

I know rich Ive talked to him before he always talks about what he could have done better in his last fight and dose it better in the next fight. he will work on his clinch defence and attacks and he will be back.

That is also what people were saying about Franklin before this fight. Franklin did not look like himself in that fight, before or duriing. Same class Franklin afterwards, however. Silva is not unstoppable. Just need someone smart enought to take him to the ground. Not get pounded by his clearly superior strikes.

I dont know if you want Silva on the ground, he's no chump, take a look at his past fights.

Franklin didnt look like himself blah blah. Franklin looked like he did in every fight. He always likes to start off mixing strikes, this time he fought a guy that is clearly the better striker, Franklin had a long time (basically since Silva beat Leben) to train for this fight and know what Silva was all about.

And he wouldnt only have to practice muai-thai clinch defense, he'd have to practice every other aspect in MMA...because Silva is more well rounded than him..period.

Silva will definitly have an easy fight ahead of him. I pity the poor soul (Lutter, Dewees, Cote or Sell) that wins TUF 4. That $100,000 will be paying for thier own funeral!

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

If I were one of those 4 I'd probably want to move up a class...
