The American Psycho
Rich is down for now but he will get back on his feet and fight another day! Who should he fight next to build himself up to a title shot?
Gurgel :laugh:ZZtigerZZ81 said:He should fight some nobody. Get his confidence back up there. The guy clearly wasn't mentally prepared, and if he was then he might as well retire. Where did he get the idea he could out clinch Silva. Who the hell told you that, Gurgel? Little advice Rich, stop taking advice from a guy who blames his knee for everything.
Very goodpoint:thumbsup: . And your only unbeatable if your fighting the wrong people. Losses make fighters stronger in more ways then most would think.Wombatsu said:It never seems to amaze me how many ppl on these forums cant wait to write fighters off. if some of u truly understand the game you wouldnt be saying such silly comments. Anyone that has been involved in the fight game knows losses are part of the game. Rich lost so what, Arlovski lost also and he got written off also - watch him come back next year. Bj penn lost, matt hughes lost, Cro-cop and Silva lost - get over it.
One loss doesnt make rich franklin a bad fighter, he had a bad day at the office, he simply goes back heals up then trains hard fights in January/Feb and makes a comeback. Plain and simple.
Anderson deserves credit he outplanned rich today and was the better man on the day.

I think Patrick Cote will take 185 in TUF4, so I predict Franklin vs. Cote coming up.
bimmu said:Naw, TUF4 was to get a title shot, so it'll be winner Vs Silva. A short comeback.
bimmu said:Personally, I think it was a stupid fight for Franklin to take right after his 9 month layoff. He should have had a tune up with an easier fight, just to get his rhytm back. I hope he trains up, heals his nose and gets a rematch. Maybe he'll lose again, but at least he might have abetter showing.
