Get off Rich Franklin!

Im not going to write an essay. About 6-7 months ago, everyone was on this guys nuts. He was consider to be one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world. People considered him unbeatable. Basically NOBODY thought he was going to lose to Anderson, myself included. He was one of the most loved fighters on this forum. Then Anderson does the unthinkable and Rich is now termed "Talentless" and "Overrated". People, STFU! Watch UFC 68. Learn something. If you can't afford to watch it live, go on youtube or some shit and watch his previous fights. Idiots need to stfu. Enough said.

Sorry to burst your bubble pal but I knew he was going to lose to Anderson Silva and I've always been "on Rich Franklin"...the fact he was able to go 3 years undefeated says more about the UFCs creativity and ability to prop up popular fighters than it does about his alleged "skills".


On the world stage of MMA Rich Franklin is nothing.

Overrated isn't the right word to describe Rich Franklin. He really is as good as people think he is but Anderson Silva is just the better fighter. Don't worry, if Rich regains his title, his nutts will not remain lonely anymore.

WTF is your problem retard? You start flaming for no ****ing reason? Sorry to break it to you but your a ****ing retard. Rich Franklin is world class. He went three years undefeated because he is world class. He beat Evan Tanner(twice), David Loiseau, Ken Shamrock(when it was actually worth a lil bit), Edwin DeWees, Jorge Rivera and many more over the course of his succesful run. Rich is generally one the smartest fighters out there. Aside from his loss to Anderson, he has never been dominated in fight, yet he continues to crush his opponents. He underestimated Anderson, and was outstruck. He didn't play the smart game and try going to the ground. I am not going to try and put up excuses for the fight, because Anderson is clearly the better fighter then Rich. But then it bugs me when retards like, who probably only started watching MMA a few months ago are going around saying "OMG, MUAY THIA POWER! RICH IS OVERRATED!" and stupid shit like that. Mr. Bungle you are clearly a retard, and after going back and looking at your posts I don't even know why I responded. OMG its past six o'clock! You don't want to miss out on the nightly Anderson **** sucking.

I think Rich is at the same Level Anderson is. He wasnt 100% the night he fought anderson and he probably just had an Off day. Hes a Quality fighter and i can easily see him being champ again, anyone can have a bad night... Prime Example when Randleman domed Cro Cop.
