I don't think anyone can argue that Franklin looked like himself in that fight, but it doesn't mean he would've fared any better.

Ever notice how guys always seem to get the flu, though? Sylvia, Franklin... I get the flu maybe once every two or three years and I'm out of shape. What are these guys getting exposed to?

Still should have been able to defend himself better then he was. I dont think it would have been that much differnt if he faced him at "100 %" He thought the clinch was going to be his sweet spot. Clearly Silva was too much for him to handle in that position.

Yeah, I like how the article call's Matt Hughes an indentured servant. You know, like slaves that were brought over to this country and had to work until they were free men. Yeah that's alot like Matt Hughes situation. Poor bastard, any of you guys wanna help set up a fundraiser to see if we can pay Matt's contract off so he can go out in the world and achieve his dreams? Everytime I see him in the Octagon I begin to cry because I know he is in there fighting when he would rather be working at Best Buy or serving pancakes at IHOP. We shall overcome, indeed.

Fighting, training hardcore every day, injuries, dieting, ect. all put a serious strain on your immune system and makes much more succeptable to illness than most people.

Good point. In fact the training these guys do actually makes them somewhat more susceptible to disease as they run their bodies ragged at peak training. I would not be surprised if Franklin had the flu, it makes sense seeing as how this was the biggest fight of his UFC career and all, things always seem to come against you at your steepest hill...

Probably waiting for his nose to heal...
It was a vicious loss, especially for a guy who is undefeated at his level...

I'll admit I was pretty hard on Rich he got his ass handed to him. But after watching it again and thinking about it I do think he was sick. This just makes me think it even more. i wont put too much stock into it until this proves to be valuable source. I just cant get over his twitching abdomen and he just didnt look right.
