Please, No More Excuses!

I have heard a lot of excuses why Franklin lost that fight in the past 48 hrs! His hand wasn't completely healed, he had ring rust, he had very low confidence, he was getting over the flu or staph infection, he was demorilized because 16 professional fighters plus former world champion Randy Couture made fun of him because of his advice to drop to one knee at the start of a fight! Please, enough is enough! I don't want to look like a serious ass here but the fact is Rich lost because he fought a man who was superior that night. It happens!

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

what sucks is we arent going to stop hearing about it until next year. this will replace the wand vs chuck discussion. i was just saying on another thread, that since a re-match wont happen til atleast after silva fights the winner of tuf which probably wont be until super bowl weekend, we will have to wait until after that goes down. so we will be bludgeoned to death with why franklin lost until then and its going to make me jump out of building into a busy street flooded with pirahnas that are fighting with sharks to eat humans

Well, with the growth of MMA in the "mainstream" you are gonna get that. The novices, and I would include myself in that category, can learn alot from those of you who are more experienced and much more knowlegable. Bear with our dumb questions and comments. This is how we learn. MMA will be viewed as a sport in more people's minds and not a passing fad which has a shelf life like pro wrestling tends to have.

Yeah.
I mean honestly, if we only saw fights where everything in your life and body was 100 percent, we wouldn't see too many fights.

I just saw the fight, and just like Bonnar426 said....
Stop crying in the breast milk.

It is clear that Silva was just the superior fighter.
Anderson dominated in the clinch and Rich took some heavy knees to the point he'd turn his body to use his arms to protect himself.

Sick or unconfident, those factors had NOTHING to do with his loss.
Silva clinched him like a venus fly trap and took Rich to school.
Rich didn't know how to react because he probably didn't expect such a thing.
