franklin move up

do you think franklin should move from middle weight. he did pretty good against ken shamrock and I think he could do well against some other light heavy weight fighter. but I don't know. what do you think

Maybe if he moved down he would have better chance. Got smoked when he finally had to face some good talent in current class. He is good but the change of the belt proves he is not great. Chuck would kill him and GSP would break his nose for the 2nd time. Maybe he is better staying where he is...to always be the former champ.

You guys are hard on rich... Yes he got slammed... yes he doesnt have the belt, but he has been a great champ up until this.... He has never tried to duck anyone and this time he got caught... that is it.... he is fine in his current class and will come back out better for losing like he did. I watched his loss and said damn anderson is good... im sure Rich will be back after his nose heals and he gets back into the swing of things.

Franklin is not finished! He had one crappy fight! That happens to all fighters! Look at Matt Hughes when he first faced BJ Penn! He got demolished bad but he came back from that loss! I'm sure Rich will climb back up the ladder and be on top again! Also, he shouldn't move up! The middleweight division is just starting to get interesting since Franklin found compitition in Anderson Silva!

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

moving up would get him killed by chuck and shows hes a coward so its definatley not happening and he wouldnt move down becuase its his buddy matt hughes' territory
