Poll: Should Rich Franklin of had a warm fight before last nights title defense?

I just watched the Franklin Silva fight, and to me Rich looked like he had some ring rust. Do you think he shouldve had a warm up fight before last nights title defense after the lengthy layoff he had? Im not taking anything away from Silva. I had my money on him in the first place, but I didnt think Franklin would be dominated like this though.

Warmup fights are not what the UFC should be about...that's my opinion. He's a fighter, not a baby. With being the champ comes the responsibility of needing to beat anyone they put in front of you. Warmup fights are for pussies, and Rich is not a *****.

Thats a good point but I voted yes. He wouldve lost either way though just not as bad.

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.
Superman owns a pair of Mac Danzig bird feeder pajamas.

the very notion of "warm up" fights would destroy the entire concept of this sport. if some fights meant less than others, then what would be the value of them in the first place???

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

Like I said before in another thread, Rich was the champion and he had to be prepared to fight anybody wheter he was coming off an injury or not! That's what makes them a champion!

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
