Absolutely ... sorta hard to believe that such a prestigious MMA fighter like him looked like an amateur and had no idea how to handle the clinch. Maybe easier said than done, but, I think Rich underestimated Silva's clinch, panicked, and really things fell apart very quickly

Yeah, it sucks that he's going to have to wait .. AGAIN ... I don't know if it's better or worse that he has time to reflect ... maybe those demons will get him, maybe he'll sit around and really think about what he should have done differently (for sure). I don't think the lay off contributed too much to the loss. I think the biggest reason is that Franklin came in underconfident and with a bad game plan, froze like a deer in the headlights when he realized he couldn't break the clinch

Rather than searching for reasons or excuses as to why Franklin lost people should be asking how a guy can go for 3 years in the UFC without losing and be so easily beaten by a guy who lost 4 times in another organization?

Perhaps Dana White needs to up the $ so that he can attract some better talent.

I still don't understand why it is that people always want to bash the UFC. Why not call out ALL of those MMA experts that ranked Rich as one of the tops in the world???

That's BS man, first off no one wins all their fights...everyone has a chance to lose every single fight no matter who they are fighting.

Second, it's not like Silva got his ass beat in his 4 losses...not like he was too weak for the other fighting places and came to UFC and owned...

In the "world"...are you making a joke?

Rich Franklin's career was anything but impressive before he came to the UFC.

I bash the UFC because it has the potential to be great but instead greed has corrupted it and it's becoming mediocre...it may make the most money but it's big title holders are nowhere near the best. F**k there are guys at my gym who would destroy Hughes, Franklin and Liddell...Puh-leeze, calling these guys "world champions" is laughable at best.

OK it's s**t like this that KILLS me. I doubt that you or your little friends at your gym are able to lick the sweat off the ba**s of those fighters. Stop with the me me me crap and get real.

Mr Bungles has lost credibility in my eyes.

Tell me with a straight face that you believe that the guys I named are the best in the world? or even the Country?

C'mon...you know that I'm right.



And frankly I couldn't give a steamy frothy shit about whether you feel I have "credibility" or not. Who the f**k are you?
