Damn, someone needs to post a pic or, even better, video of Rich walking to the octagon. At first i though "bullshit, he wasn't sick..." but you guys have me wondering

Excuse me for not reading the entire thread...but no matter what happened...I think Anderson Silva is the champion and that's that.

Rich Franklin also needs to come back stronger than ever and get a great rematch.

I don't think whether Franklin was sick or not matters much to either of them...but if Dana did not let Franklin out...then that is just wrong. Sooner or later he will regret those types of business practices and I hope all the up and coming stars know not to take that kind of $H!T.

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn

My understanding is that he was sick (not dying) - which could very possibly have been blown out of proportion by the internet public.

he def looked sick to me though and i heard this after the fight also.

No excuses why he lost that bad, thats life but he will be back.

That actually makes sense, I thought he looked like shit before the fight. I even heard his wife was crying before the fight even started, so that would make you think she knew he was not going to be able to properly defend himself(I didn’t see this so I don’t know if that is actually true or not). If that true about Dana White that is inexcusable and just ****ed up but I doubt he would make those kind of threats….that just sounds a little extreme. Not only does this suck for Rich Franklin but it also sucks for Anderson Silva, no one would want something like this taking away from there victory.

I can never figure out how to get the damn thing to play! I like the sites that the screen is right there waiting for you. This site asks you to do too much shit before you can watch it.

He didn't look too sick on the UFN interview the Tuesday before the fight. I wonder what kind of timeframe we're talking about here.

It's just so funny how everyone has jumped on silva's bandwagon... i agree SILVA he won fair AND SQAURE and the fight was not fixed thats for sure but if you just watch the fricking entrance and have a look at franklin, his face is pale and he looks sick........AND ITS NOT BECAUSE HE WAS SCARED OR THOUGHT HE WAS GONNA GET HIS ASS WHOOPED as some of you people say.

All im saying is he was not a 100% and going into a fight not being 100% is asking for a ass whooping no matter how good you are. I'm not a franklin nuthugger and i love silva because he is a very humble guy and will be a great champoin for some time until franklin comes BACK 100%...... then we will see a real fight.
