agreed rich is now at worst the number 2 contender for the title. Why not ask for a rematch early next year ??? Thats BS having to win 3 matches for a title when your franklin.....damn whats up with the guy...something is so not right there.
Give swick a shot and see how he goes is what id say, then give rich one fight if he wins match silva and franklin back up again.
Having said that i feel for Nate Marquardt - what does this guy have to do to get some recognition from the UFC ???
