Thats because GSP doesn't finish people in brutal fashion. Anderson does. So that comment doesn't really hold water.

Both fights are incredibly hard to sell, not many people would buy BJ or Rich's chances, the last BJ/GSP fight was the definition of a beatdown, just because GSP doesn't finish doesn't mean he isn't dominant or a great fighter.

This should be an easy fight for Rich if it happens. Rich just needs to work TDD and he'll likely finish Tito on the feet.




And yes... the UFC needs to let him move back down to 185.

This fight would be good. Rich wins this until he gets taken down.

Basically this.

I'm not even that interested in this fight (or the Diet Nog one)

Let Franklin go back to MW and take on newer guys like Stann, Weidman, and Munoz. He has plenty left in the tank, and he has a big size disadvantage against bigger LHWs.

Am I the only one that was disappointed that we never got to see Marquardt/Franklin? Anyhow, there are a ton of great fights for Franklin at 185 now. Bisping, Sonnen, Stann, Leben, Munoz or even Belcher would all be good match ups. I guess the UFC is just afraid of him beating out possible contenders and creating a Jon Fitch situation where everyone knows he has zero chance of taking the belt in the near future and creating an extremely hard sell for another fight.

This would be a fun fight. I like when pioneers of the sport fight. I loved Franklin/Wandy and Franklin/Chuck. It's always good to see to for posterboys of the sport throw down. Tito has been around a while longer than Rich, but they were both title holders around the same time.

And...yes, Rich will always be a MW fighter in my book. He is a huge 185 pound fighter and is an interesting matchup for anyone currently in that division. I really hope this fight happens.

As long as it's not a "co-Main Event" at a shitty PPV I don't have a problem with it.
