Who wins? idk but it's a fantastic match up.
Quoted for truth.

We know that both of these guys work their asses off in the gym. As long as W. Silva doesn't flail in like he's been doing, which I think his last fight taught him not to do, and cuts the weight well, then this could be a great three round battle. Awesome.

I could see Franklin finishing him on the ground, Ace has a very underrated ground game. Franklin is pretty good at avoiding the power advantage and will hopefully be able to stick and move and not get dropped.

Rich has a good ground game but unknown to the world so does Wandy.

Wandy really doesn't get hurt on the ground he does a great job of protecting himself he just doesn't have an offensive ground game.

This fight sucks. Don't get me wrong, I can't wait to watch it. But I am a huge fan of both fighters and they are both coming off a loss.

Plus, I'm pretty confident that Rich will take it due to his methodical striking, and that will be another setback for an already struggling Silva.
