I like Hendo, but I'm tired of everyone discrediting Franklin.
If he beat him he would have been awarded the win he fought Hendo to a draw basically and you really can't bitch about losing a decision at that point. Look at the last couple years of Hendo's Career. He beat Vitor, KOed Wandy, took Rampage 5 tough back and forth rounds to lose a close fight, took a round from Andy, got a win over Franklin, and murdered Bisping. Hendo gets less respect than he deserves he is top 3 at MW and a top 10 to top 5 guy at LHW at any given time he should be 4 or 5 on P4P right now.

I can definetly name 5 guys easily better P4P than Henderson. He is good but hasnt been that dominant to be near the top of that list.

I'd root for Franklin to win it if he dropped back down.

ok this is how it is going to go down...
Maia vs Nate - Nate wins a shot at a title fight with hendo
Rich vs Vitor - Vitor wins
Hendo vs Nate (for MW Title)- Nate wins title
Vitor vs Nate - Vitor wins title

far fetched?...

I voted for Franklin. I think that he has the ability to beat Hendo, should they fight again. Here's an entertaining thought though.......Wandy is going down to 185, and I know it's not likely that he could win a major promotion belt any more, but who wouldn't like to see Wandy with the middleweight strap around his waist, even if only for a short while? Franklin did say after their fight that he could definately be a force at 185.

I think Marquardt is seriously under-rated. The only fight which really takes anything away from him is the Silva fight. Which I don't really feel should take much from him. I think Nate will surprise a lot of people in his next two to three fights, assuming none of them are against Anderson. He's easily #2 in my book.

I find Marquardt to be completely overrated. I think Franklin and Hendo would easily tool him.

Maia has a good chance, but I think he would struggle to get past Hendo or Franklin.

Okami doesn't have much of a chance.

If Franklin decides to move back down, the belt is his. If not, Hendo will get it.
