Are we all forgetting about Evan Tanner i think if he stuck to his ground game he would have a good shot at Franklin Tanners the greatest i think he deserves a spot in the hall of fame

Although i think tanner vs franklin 3 would b a good fight, I wouldn't want to see either of these guys lose cuz i like them both. I'd rather see Franklin fight Leben and hopefully dismantle him........ I can't stand leben, and would love to see Franklin man handle him.

thats all im saying. people may not like him, that doesnt make him a can though. he has beat legitimate guys. thats why they put leben and anderson together. silva was just the better fighter.

I think Nathan Marquardt is the most qualified for a fight with Franklin. He is an underated fighter who get barely any TV time. Him or Swick deserve the shot the most but I think he definetly has the best chance.

P.S. Leben Sucks.

i thought about evan when i made the list, but we saw that fight twice already. i want evan to come back..i posted a thread about him http://www.mmaforum.com/ufc-discussi...ht=evan+tanner he should fight some of these guys too. i'd like to see evan fight silva. but i think rich still has evans card right now. i see another fight between them going the same way the other two went right now.

If Evan came back and wins another fight or two he should get a shot at Silva. I think it will be a great fight.

i agree, especially since he spent some time at chute boxe. i mentioned in the thread i posted that i thought he should just go down to curtiba for like six months and train straight muay thai. his ground game is where it needs to be, so why not sharpen up the stand up, and maybe get a few pointers from andersons old stable.

I only think that Swick should fight him cause he beat some pretty good opponents to deserve it. I dont think he is that good or anything. And I cant see him beating Franklin. I just think Leben is a sloppy fighter that throws hard punches. His footwork is terrible and He leaves his face open to punches lots. He can beet a lot of fighters in the UFC but he doesnt stand a chance with any world class middleweights.
