Realize, for one second, that Anderson Silva is one of the greatest Muay Thai fighters in the world (certainly the best among UFC Middleweights) and a BJJ Blackbelt. Franklin's guard was pretty active, he only made two mistakes in the clinch and that cost him the fight. If he had screwed up any more than that, he would have looked something like marvin eastman after his fight with Vitor.
Just stop arguing with him and ban him, theres no point in even taking notice of this little boy. I've heard enough of his ridiculous rants, BAN HIM! MODS! PLEASE!

Mat, this is pointless and we will be disagreeing with you for the next year if you don't just shut up and drop this. This is the most moronic topic ever and to ever be thought of, I watched that fight and Rich looked a little worried "not sick" to me going in, and when he got into the clinch with Silva and found out how dangerous Silva is in the clinch, he knew he was in trouble and guess what? HE WAS!

Did you not see when he tried to break away during the clinch? Did you see him look into Silva's eyes? Rich had that look of crucial PAIN in him.

I wouldn't say it was 'fixed' but RF was not usual himself

WTF? I used to think he was incredibly toned (cardio) MOFO but his midsection was twitching weird. All my friends were watching and thinking 'WTF'?? What the heck is that? Did he break his rib? pull rib cage? Also the 'shiner' .. We were like WTH? Who roughed him up before the fight? Something is seriously wrong here.

I am Thai and grew up with Muay Thai and come on.. RF is too strong to be held like that and pushed around (and he was basically pushed around). Only a complete n00b with no knowledge of clinch would be pushed around and held for 30 seconds. Come on.. Something was really wrong..

I don't like this PRIDE vs UFC bandwagon but r u guys all saying that PRIDE fighters are that superior to UFC Fighters? Silva is an excellent fighter but he was by no means top 3 in PRIDE. All you guys keep saying.. 'no one can beat Silva'.. Come on... I truly believe RF can come back and reclaim his belt.

RF looked seriously 'weak' and 'out of it' even before he stepped into the ring. Something is seriously messed up here.

Whats funny is anyone who knows anything about MMA knew Rich was going to lose. He was out classed by his opponent. Why do people let there minds run away like this. There may have been something wrong with Rich. He may not have felt well. He may have been injured. He may have just felt like he did not have a chance and he was going to lose. Whatever the case, its over. I really like Rich, and I hope to see him fight again. I think Rich is good for the UFC and he is a great roll model for kids comeing up. What he does not need is people making excuses for him. The guy has way to much class to ever let anyone make excuses for him.

He looks sad cuz he got his ass handed to him by a better fighter, I will agree he didn't look like his normal confident self though.

and tasteestuff his shiner was from just his normal training, I read it on a news post at ufc.com. And please don't use the word "n00b" it belongs in some kinda of video game forum or something, but not here.

Organized crime is still around, but the Mafia is nothing. It all gang's now baby, I'd like to see the mafia last 5 minutes in Compton

If you really think a bunch of teenagers with 9mm would take on the mafia??? hahahahaha. The gangs can't even kill eachother, retard.......

You act like fighters cant get better. His last legitamte loss was 3 years ago. What exactly has Rich done to prove he's better than Silva.

"a fighter is only as good as his last fight"

dont care what his record is...

If you listen to the play-by-play, its all compliments for Franklin even though he is getting his arse served to him on a plate the entire time...
all you hear is "good level elbow delivered by Franklin"... i was like 'huh?' what fight are they watching???

This was a hand-picked match that Franklin *thought* was a no-brainer.
It was supposed to be a nice confidence builder for him...
There was no way the UFC money making machine was gonna OK a fight that Franklin was even remotely gonna lose...

The fight was fixed alright, but it got messed up when the fix didnt playout the way the UFC promoters thought it was supposed to
