RICH FRANKLIN IS A CHUMP, A PUNK, A LAME SCRUB

Are you kidding? A man who has dedicated his life to his profession, who trains like a madman, a man who has stepped into the arena, faced his opponent, faced the truth of himself. I hear he is being talked down on the forums of the MMA websites. That makes me angry. He was on top of the world and worshipped, now he is the subject of laughter. I wish we could all be bigger than that. I wouldn't say I'm friends with him, or particularly like him, but he has my full respect, and will continue to have my respect, win or lose. He is a great fighter. I have respect for any man that has the courage to step into the ring, the octagon, and put his pride, and body on the line.

It's easy for so many on the sidelines, sitting in the seats, sitting on their couches at home to talk, to say how a thing should be done, but who is it, alone in the ring? Who is it that faces it all by himself? It is the warrior. Rich Franklin is a warrior. We should show some respect.

Yeah, I suppose he's right .. i kind of wrote Rich off yesterday too ... I feel he could put in a better performance but I still don't think he's going to beat Silva .. Franklin's a good fighter who fought really, really dumb on Saturday night ... I don't know why he didn't have a better way of getting out of that clinch, he had to have known it was coming

My mistake, I was reading your thread wrong. My apologies, it all makes sense now.


P.S. Tanner is right and that's how I feel.

he didnt fight dumb. he has never fought a real muay thai striker before. and he got caught with 3 hard knees to the liver. he just was outclassed. he should go train with bas rutton for awhile. he needs to revamp his stand up if he ever wants to be champ again. what a bad fight to bring his in-laws too though.

The only reason that this might end Rich as a fighter is that for the first time his Wife and her parents (or his not entirely sure which ones) were at the fight for the first time.

As a married man i will tell you with up most certainty that if she cares for him she most certainly will convince him to give it up. With her parents backing her up. There will be some family pressure to deal with. It will only compound the problem with him suffering the injuries he did in his win over David L. If he has broken ribs (id wouldnt be surprised at all, they are bruised at least and that makes it awful hard to move either).

His ability or heart will be questioned like never before. The single worse thing the UFC could do for him is throw him back into a rematch instantly. That would for sure end his career.

It looks like Quick Swick will fight Sliva next as indicated on the UFC website. They said he was there in attendence to see the beating that frank took and said he "stopped short" of calling out Sliva. It appears that Sliva is in the heads of everyone already which is not a good sign. Some body better teach that boy how to speak english he's gunna be around for awhile.
