Will a win over Henderson put Ace back on the Map?

The one thing that really hurts to see is my boy Rich fading into obscurity. After two losses to Anderson it seems nobody is really excited about him anymore. But if he is able to get a win over Dan Henderson will it give his career that much needed spark. Or will it still be the same as yesterday (considering Hendo is somewhat down on his luck after two losses and a lackluster win)?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

It will be neither since Hendo will put Rich to sleep.

I have my left hand on Franklin's nuts and my right on Hendo's, but no I do not think a win for either is a game changer. I think it puts them back on the path to being in the game, but there are too many younger and more high profile guys. To me it almost seems like this fight is which older fighter stays and which one becomes a gate keeper. What is even worse is that they are both still fairly young. I want this fight to end with them both jumping A.Silva and being declared tag team 185 champs.

I can dream, can't I?

I think a win over Henderson will put Franklin on the map at 205. Now he would need a win over a legit 205 guy so that he could be in title contention but this would be a great step for him.

I'm not sure about Franklin at 205. beating Hammil who IMO is pretty overrated doesn't mean much but a win over Hendo would.

If it wasn't for a fighter named Anderson Silva, Franklin and Henderson probably would have already fought for the middle weight championship. Besides Anderson I dont see any one beating those two.

it'll do wonders for him at LHW...legitimizing his spot among the jardine's, silva's, and rampage's...

rich franklin vs. keith jardine ...interesting fight, as rich was keith's coach on tuf2

I would like to see Rich vs Jardine.

I think Jardine is a bigger but less talented version of Franklin.

However because of his strange striking style Jardine could take it.

Although I'll be honest since the Vera vs Jardine fight I'm even less convinced that Jardine will be a top LHW for much longer.

I think Rich would beat Jardine. They both had unorthodox striking and Rich is a smarter fighter than any that Keith has fought and I feel that would play a huge role in it.

Franklin is a top fighter, anyone who disagrees is wrong.

He just can't beat Anderson Silva.
