I hope this is true, I think that's the best possible matchup for Swick right now. He called out Silva and who better than Rich Franklin, the last guy Anderson spanked, to prove if your worth Silva's time. Assuming Lutter gets spanked too

it'll suck to see either of these guys lose

good post

Swick's winning streak will end with Franklin! Well, unless Swick lands a knee to Franklin's head. I think we all know by now that is Ace's weakness!

That might be a pretty good fight. I think Franklin needs to fight two times again to get a rematch with Silva?

Franklin has amazing gabs. His accuracey is one of the best in the division. Also Rich has good takedown defense.


Swick is wild...I'd put him in a higher class but with the same style as Leben. He's head strong..but he tends to telegraph his movement/strikes less than Leben.

In this fight Franklin will win, if he applies earnly/steady pressure agianst Swick to post him more on a defensive fight where Swick doesn't sit as comfortably. Using a steady steam of jabs and crosses, Rich will be able to apply just enough pressure to get Swick to rethink a stratagy that he is not ready to use.


I expect to see atleast one flying knee from Swick..and Rich will make him pay for it byt keeping him out of distance and making him throw it at the wrong time. One must not forget that Rich stikes in a good stance and with good footwork....I see trouble for Swick in landing a lot of shots if Rich brings his A(ce) game.

This could be a fun bout. I'll give the win to Franklin because he's pretty well-rounded. But Swick is prett good in both respects, too. I just have to hand it to Franklin though I think hes the better fighter but only if he comes on his game. Anything else and Quick Swick will make easy work of taking him out...
