He's mad because Anderson Silva just created more work for him! Rich Franklin was the number 1 middleweight in the UFC and Anderson demolished him! Now Dana has to start looking for other middleweights that can handle Silva. That means dishing out more money to the fighters!

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

He was probably still in shock after watching one of his golden boys go down in flames.

I really think Dana underestimated Anderson Silva in the first place. He brought him in, and threw him in their vs Chris Leben, who was on a roll at the time and then Anderson crushed him in 49 seconds. Then, once again, Anderson was underestimated and decimated Rich Franklin at UFC 64: Unstoppable. Hopefully Dana now knows what he has and doesn't underestimate Anderson again.

I am going to have to agree with that theory 100%, he was thinking in his mind that, that fight would just be another notch on Franklins belt as he was undefeated and it looked as though no one could touch him, but to Dana's suprise Sliva chewed him up and spat him out, which comes to Dana spending money that he didn't expect to have to on new fighters.

I think Dana is much smarter then you guys give credit. He put togeter a good fight with an interesting outcome. And now Franklin vs Silva is the hot topic on EVERY forum. I would guess that Rich losing the belt gives people alot more to talk about.

I think he didnt like it at all silva was a Pride guy and he came in took out Leben with ease and then took out the champ like he was a can that cant have him feeling good about sending his fighters to Pride to fight especially his champions.

1. Ken Shamrock
2. Randy Couture
3. Don Frye
