I didn't know Rich ever left his spot on the map.

I'm sure everyone, including me, know that Franklin is a great fighter, talented and poses some danger to most fighters at both 185 and 205. On the same note, I personally have never been "excited" to see him fight, he's just not one of my favorite fighters.

There is no doubt that he is a talented fighter and a win over Hendo will only boost his resume.

One thing I'm wondering about since this fight is at 205- is where is Hendo wanting to go after this? He's stated he wants a rematch with Silva but is coming off a MW win over Palhares. He beats Rich(possibly) at 205- is he trying to contend at 205 or at 185? Rich wins- it moves him up at 205 but where does Hendo go win or lose?

Also I never thought Rich was off the map.

Maybe he plans on fighting Anderson at 205????

Regardless of his losses to The Spider, I cannot get enough of Ace Franklin. I love the guy.

Pretty much sums it up. A win over Hendo would definitely legitimize his stature at LHW but as far as MW's he's still in the top 3, with 4 on down being a HUGE dropoff. Aside from Hendo has Anderson fought anyone in the UFC Rich couldn't destroy? I'm not real convinced moving to LHW was a good move for Ace but there are some real exciting matches up there for him. Chuck? Shogun? Rashad? Forrest? A rematch with Machida? All fights I would LOVE to see whether he wins or loses against Hendo.

I just keep praying that somebody takes out Silva so Rich can get a chance to fight someone new and get his belt back.

I guess I gotta keep praying....

The problem with Rich was that most people agreed that he 1) was the #2 UFC MW, and 2) would never be able to beat Silva. So that made it pretty uninteresting to watch his fights for people who was rooting for him, because he could only either lose or stay where he was.

Now that he's moved to LHW he's getting more interesting again with all the interesting matchups that are possible.

Rich is awesome and i never thought he was to down and out, but maybe he should take a run at the LHW belt....him v Chuck Liddell could make an interesting fights and they both have big fanbases

Franklin is the MAN!! Dude stepped to the spider twice both times he fought like a warrior. He didnt come with some B.S. game plan he went in there just as hard the second time around.

He has also continued his winning ways after those defeats and I believe he will beat Hendo.

I didn't think Rich was ever off the map, still nice and cozy as the 2nd best MW. UFC just needs to make him a silver belt, maybe with a gate instead of a cage on it, in the MW division. Because I don't think there is anyone that can beat him at MW, but Silva.

WAR ACE & HENDO
