Has anyone heard the rumors that the reason Rich Franklin looked different coming into the ring was because he had a serious case of the flu along with vomiting and diarrhie in the days going into the fight?

Didnt he just come out of a staph infection?..or was that a while back.....That could play a factor as to why he was lookin a lil gloomy but i dont think a staph infection lasts that long =S correct me if im wrong im just guessing.

I hear what your saying but trust me dana would not of let rich pull out unless he had a something like a broken arm or something. dana is not going to let rich pull out for the flue. he did look prety bad walking to the ring and in the pre fight interview

it was really sad for me to see franklin go down like that. he was a great champion and is one of my favorite fighters. i was in disbielief when silva dominated him like that.

looking at Franklin on his way in and on the preflight interview he did look kind of sick or something. Watch the pre fight interviews you’ll see that he is always breathing out of his mouth and his eyelids are sagging and he has a big spot under

Thats the lamest excuse ever. He was outclassed and thats the bottom line. I know it's werid to see such a talented guy be put away so easily but S**** happens. All the greats experience loss. He'll be back.
