Franklin was in awe and terror during fight

I just watched a replay of the fight and couldn't believe the look in Rich's eyes as he was getting pulverized. You really feel badly for the guy because it was like he was ready to say "Mercy". There were a couple of moments you see Rich looking right into Silva's eyes as he twisted sideways. Then he actually looked away for a moment as if to say "there's nothing more I can do ... I'm going down". I don't think anyone comes back psychologically from that ... mark my words, Rich will NEVER beat Silva again

Very true my friend.
There is a rumor that he had the flu dierria and was throwing up allot. and it’s everywhere looking at Franklin on his way in and on the preflight interview he did look kind of sick or something. Watch the pre fight interviews you’ll see that he is always breathing out of his mouth and his eyelids are sagging and he has a big spot under uis left eye

Poor guy though, I'm maybe being too hard on Rich, maybe he does have a chance but I think he needs to do some serious re-tooling on his training and really needs to build up his confidence again

he did appear *extremely* defeated. not just physically, but mentally. it looked like he was having a hard time talking to randy in the post-fight interview. maybe that was just his nose, though lol

I would have a hard time talking too with a flat nose and probably broken ribs. Anyway I wouldnt be surprised if I heard Rich was sick or something for this fight, I hope he was. If he was he could come back and at least make an interesting fight. Because no one else in the division can. Maybe if hes 100% he'll have confidence. Then again maybe he was 100% and got killed anyway. We'll just have to wait and see.
