It never seems to amaze me how many ppl on these forums cant wait to write fighters off. if some of u truly understand the game you wouldnt be saying such silly comments. Anyone that has been involved in the fight game knows losses are part of the game. Rich lost so what, Arlovski lost also and he got written off also - watch him come back next year. Bj penn lost, matt hughes lost, Cro-cop and Silva lost - get over it.

One loss doesnt make rich franklin a bad fighter, he had a bad day at the office, he simply goes back heals up then trains hard fights in January/Feb and makes a comeback. Plain and simple.

Anderson deserves credit he outplanned rich today and was the better man on the day.

Very goodpoint . And your only unbeatable if your fighting the wrong people. Losses make fighters stronger in more ways then most would think.

Personally, I think it was a stupid fight for Franklin to take right after his 9 month layoff. He should have had a tune up with an easier fight, just to get his rhytm back. I hope he trains up, heals his nose and gets a rematch. Maybe he'll lose again, but at least he might have abetter showing.

Rich is to fight the winner of TUF 4, right? I could be wrong.
I think Patrick Cote will take 185 in TUF4, so I predict Franklin vs. Cote coming up.

Naw, TUF4 was to get a title shot, so it'll be winner Vs Silva. A short comeback.

TUF4 winner is going to get demolished. As for Anderson Silva...

Silva vs Chuck Lidell anyone? Silva could easily go tot he 205 weight class by adding a lil more lean mass.

Although I guess that would be really doubtful. The UFC surely doesn't want someone abandoning the belt instantly...Only BJ penn would have the will to do something like that. Still that would be a striking dream come true...almost as much so as the other silva vs lidell

i agree also Cote is prob the most well rounded on the show at 85...Cote is very good, but not that good.

Post Something don't smell right

Is it just me or did Rich look like he was beat from the time he started his walk to the ring? He sure didn't look confident;almost like he knew what was going to happen. I still can't believe that , this was his first fight after being out for 6 months. How long could he really of had to train,and get back into fighting shape. The whole thing was strange!!! That was not the Rich Franklin that I know. No doubt Silva is bad ass and has crazy skills. Anyway...... something isn't quite right about the whole thing.: Rich will be back and I believe when he does eventually fight Silva again it will be a different outcome.

How is it fair to give any fighter a "warm up" fight? How biased can you be man you're saying he should have faught a can first? Yea that'll gain the UFC some rep for sure! He (was) the undefeated UFC champion and you are saying he should have faught someone who didn't deserve a title shot so he could win....how is that fair and how is that entertaining?
