Now that Rich Franklin is no longer mw champ. Who should he fight next? My opinions are Mike Swick or David Loiseau. Mike Swick wants Anderson Silva next but he probably has a better chance facing Rich Franklin.

Mike Swick will face Rich Franklin
if that fight actually happens swick is in for a long wait. i really can't see him abiding by that for a title bout. i bet swick fights silva before he fights franklin.

I would actually think that Swick would get a title shot before the TUF 4 winner, thought maybe Franklin might face someone like Jason MacDonald, the dude who beat Shortfuse Ed Herman

in rumor section of mmaweekly.com, chris leben is in next UFN but his opponent is unknown, maybe they put swick against leben and then a title shot. it is soon for swick to get a title shot, he did not do any good thing in The crow fight.

too soon? the guy has had 5 UFC fights, won them all, and not to mention beat former number 1 contender David Loiseau. I think hes lined up perfect for a title shot, after all, Anderson got his after simply beating Chris Leben lol

Franklin wont be fighting in 2006

i wouldn be suprised to see franklin untill april or so.

Id like to see Evan Tanner come back and fight Swick or matt lindland.

Then after Silva kills the TUF 4 finalest he'd fight winner of Swick vs whoever.

agreed...Franklin wont fight again at least until March next year. TUF 4 winner will get shot soon enough and Swick deserves a shot, both will prob loose then Rich can fight one tune up fight then go back for another crack later next year.

For some reason Marquardt keeps being overlooked. He has won every fight he's had in the UFC. He has been in line for the title for some time now. I think with the way Rich pushes the action this could be a good fight.

Marquardt's UFC record :
Win Crafton Wallace Undercard at the last Ultimate Fight Night
Win Joe Doerksen UFC 58
Win Ivan Salaverry Ultimate Fight Night 1
