Franklin is one of the most underrated fighters in the UFC atm, literally only lost to legends and champions, he is GREAT at many things (high/low combos, clinch, footwork, head movement) and really good at almost everything, about as well rounded as any MW and still a top 5 MW imo (and i think he BEAT Dan Henderson) he may be the number 1 or 2 if he went back and i would welcome a rematch with Vitor.
Forrest isnt near the skill of Rich, in anything, jmo
Yep, I really like Franklin, He is very well rounded and he has a skill-set that works really well in the octagon. He may not look as flashy as some other guys, but he is efficient and always comes ready to fight.
As for Forrest, I think people are not giving him enough credit. I agree with you guys(and also himself) that he isn't the most talented fighter, but he has defeated some top class opponents just with a great work ethic and doing what works. I have no problem watching Forrest pushing a decision you can't really class him as a boring fighter.
I think Forrest is going to outwork Tito, Tito has been out a long time, It will take a few fights to get back into the swing of things.

haha, this is almost a given whenever Tito is involved!
