Yeah so I was thinking, I remember seeing this fight where Rich Franklin got rocked by 2 knees to the gut and he ran away from the situation and eventually won. Problem is I can't remember the other fighter. Anyways I'm thinking Silva saw this too and saw a chink in Rich's Armor. I think he trained specifically in the clinch to weaken Rich. And I think that Rich's confidence in the clinch was his own undoing. As soon as Silva landed his second knee you could tell Rich was hurt and I don't think he had enough to get away. And if what people are saying about Rich not being well is true then Iim sure that would definitely have weakened his core. Well anyways, there's some food for thought.
