Rich Franklin fans disapointed.
I think people were very upset seeing him lose like that and want to find some reason for it. The truth is Rich just fought someone with a style and strength that Rich was not ready for at this point. The great thing about sports & MMA is anyone can rise to the occasion on any given day. Nothing is ever a sure thing. It's true that some fighters take easy fight's to prolong there championship's, Rich was not one of those guys. Rich will take this loss and use it to make himself a better fighter, thats the kind of guy he is. Thats why you like him so much, cause he is real and not the type to make excuses. Im sure he does not want people or fan's making accusations.
1) Should Rich look for a rematch with Silva or take the time to strengthen his skills before fighting again.
