What's next for Rich Franklin?

Rich is down for now but he will get back on his feet and fight another day! Who should he fight next to build himself up to a title shot?

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

Well I wouldnt mind seeing Rich take on Mike Swick. I think it could be one heck of a fight since Swick has improved.

What's next? Facial surgery.

I'd really like to see Franklin move up and fight Chuck sometime within the future. That would be an interesting match up. But I see him seeking to avenge his lost, probably fighting Mike, if Silva doesn't destroy him first.

I think Nathan Marquet would be a good fight for him. Maybe even Chris Leben, Lousiou rematch?

Its tough to say, matters how long it takes for his nose to heal, and then it also matters whos lost/won to who in between that time.


I think its to early to say.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

He should fight some nobody. Get his confidence back up there. The guy clearly wasn't mentally prepared, and if he was then he might as well retire. Where did he get the idea he could out clinch Silva. Who the hell told you that, Gurgel? Little advice Rich, stop taking advice from a guy who blames his knee for everything.

Here's what I think should happen and most likely will...but only if the standings stay the same for a while...

First Fight: Chris Leben
Second Fight: Dean Lister
Third Fight: Mike Swick
Fourth fight: Nate Marquardt for #1 contender rights
If he wins that then he should be back for the title, and if he loses again then who knows

Not a bad plan, I wouldn't mind seeing that fight.

Perhaps Rich Franklin should fight Ken Shamrock - that would be a pretty even matchup at this point, or maybe the guy that fought after Franklin/Silva with the long curly hair. I also think Ralph Maccio (Karate Kid) might do well against Franklin. I heard he started training again.
