The Way Rich was Treated!

Well, the fighters pretty much dissed Ace! The middleweights and welterwieghts just seemed cold towards him! After Ace gave Serra some advice about dropping to one knee, all the fighters made fun of him like crazy! Personally, I think they should have worked with Rich a little more! This man had succeed where they have failed! Plus, one of them could be fighting him so they should try to get to know there enemy, even if he gives just a little information about his fighting skill! Your thoughts!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Matt Serra said it best, hes fought in 8 ufc fights himself, Rich Franklin may be the champ but hes nothing that Matt's going to get all excited about. Do you think Kos or Sanchez still think its a big deal to train with a Matt Hughes or Rich Franklin? Probably not.

Yes. Matt Serra is just like Jeremy Horn was the second fight with Liddell and look what happened. Matt has to win this season before he gets a chance to go toe to toe and then he can talk.

They were disrespectful no doubt about it....Rich is the Champ and they are not...I would not want to risk getting a staph infection either. If they did not like his advice or did not understand it....then ask questions, but dont disrespect someone that has succeeded where all of them have failed.

It was bogus advise, especially for Serra. I think that is why they got wound up about it. I thought they were just blowing off steam and being funny.

I heard pretty much every fighter acknowldege what a great fighter and great champion Rich is and they were right in doing so but Rich did not seem to come into the training sessions with any intention of helping anyone but himself. It was awkward to have him there when he is going to fight one of the fighters in the competition. Bad decision to have him there. I'm getting a little tired of the way each episode has played out this season, not enough training and too much talking and drama.

When someone gives out stupid advice like that, they deserved to be laughed at, especially guys who are trying to make an effort to return to the octagon to improve.

return to the octagon to improve....Rich is the Champ, he did what they could not...no one that has done that should be laughed at period, not at that caliber of their game.

Well you should expect better advice from a champion then start out a fight on your knee hopping, some guy would just kick you in the head and or punch you in the head till your TKOd.
