I'm very excited to see Rich fight at LHW. He's still relatively young and the only constant where he's concerned is the ability to amaze everybody, IMO.

Rich is a great representatvie of MMA, i dont think he he'll ever be off the map. If Silva beats Machida, i think we'll get to see Machida/Franklin 2 in the not too distant future. It worries me slightly that theres alot of heavy hitters in the LHW division. Will Rich be able to execute a similar gameplan that he employed at MW? or will he have to refine the way he fights?

Almost everyone would "do better" in another promotion, because the UFC generally has the better fighters. So you go to a different promotion, you fight lesser fighters. General rule, i know there are exceptions

Hendo is gonna pop a squat on Franklin's face. A real runny, steamy, stinky one.

And no, it's not gonna be good for Ace's career.

Yeah, I agree. The fact that he's only lost to 2 men in his career and destroyed the other 20 some odd guys makes him perfect for MMA's Triple-A leagues.

Or will it still be the same as yesterday (considering Hendo is somewhat down on his luck after two losses and a lackluster win)?
I would disagree he is "fading into obscurity", its only natural that after 2 hard defeats losing his belt etc he would be a little out of the limelight, he is however still a well respected fighter but now he has stepped back up to 205 he has to start over.
Hendo is a huge test at 205 but the question is does "Ace" have the tools to beat him?, i would say yes, wether he does is another matter.
