Franklin Silva 2

First off, I seriously do not see that fight going any different even if Rich was 150% ready for the fight. Silva is just a better fighter on a higher level. Rich was outclassed regardless of his personal situation. He looked scared, not sick. He knew this was the end of his reign, and that he will never be able to take out silva to regain his title. I do believe that Dana White set this fight up to dethrone Franklin because his contract is up soon...and whos Cheaper? Rich "Ace" Franklin or Rich "Deuce" Franklin?

Rich needs to man up and get back into training after his face reconstructs and fight some other fighters to get his confidence back before facing Anderson for a 2nd time. Plus I really want to see Anderson shut up Mike Swick next! Then prove to the Franklin nuthuggers that the first fight was not a fluke or that Rich was sick or it was rigged or whatever the other bullshit that is circulating around the internet.

If he's as sick as they made him out to be i doubt he wouldn have thrown up or gotten sick after the 1st knee to the chest.

Trust me he wouldn't be able to have that post fight interview as well if he was that sick. Another thing, he doesn't train in Iowa and he doesn't LIVE in Iowa he's from Cincinnati, Ohio.

Thats not Iowa so i think this "dependable source" is a militech excuse artist.

He might have been sick, im not saying he wasn't because i don't know, but i also think that he would of been in worst shape if he was as sick as they make him sound.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

Perhaps I was sick, I his fighting defanitly seemed off. But excuses are like as*holes.

I would like to see a rematch after a couple of fights by both guys.

Watch right b4 the fight again. I am not making an excuse for Ace I am just stating what I saw. I am a Rich fan but I think Silva will win #2 also.
i've seen that weird crease in his abdominal area in a few other fights. so i don't think that attributed to his possible bad health or anything.
