has anyone read anything about rich franklin since getting he beat down?? I was wondering what his reaction to the fight was and what his plans are looking like when his nose dosetn look like he got hit with a sledgehammer. the ufc website hasent had anything on him since the fight almost like they are trying to not make a big deal out of it on purpose.

I assume he doesn't wanna be seen all busted up, he'll figure out a little clinch defense, and then be back after it

He will have to take some time off to recover. Think i read somewhere that he wont be able to fight again until around April.

i hate to make excuses for fighters loses but i've watched the video know many many of times and i notice alot of things in Silva's game that affected franklin.

Headbutts.

Silva headbutt him like 4 times in the clinch while going for knees, i know this is against the rules and when a headbutt accures they reset the fight.

I like how everyone is so quick to put rich down now that he lost but when there heros like BJ Penn and other fighters loose they are so quick to make excuses and call it a fluke.

I'm not saying its any single person just think its funny.

Silva still deserved his win.

wheres rich? lol come on guys the fight just happend, its not a case of the QUARRY who still has yet to be heard from or scene in public.....Rich will be back when hes damn good and ready, and he'll be back for blood.....but by the time it comes, it will be Swick-Fu holding the belt, then those guys will have to get it on

Silva vs Swick

Hey Guys,

I think the next fight will be Silva vs Swick, but I do not see it going much longer than the leben or franklin fight. Mike is a decent fighter, but I would have put Rich over him by a lot, and Silva over him by even more. So the only chance Swick has is to try and take it to Silva in the first minute or so and go for a quick TKO...besides that...swick is done for.

No doubt Swick is a good fighter, however I truly beleive Silva is out of his league. He did get the win over Loiseau but i think the crow just took too long to warm up. If there was another round im sure Loiseau would have won with a TKO. Im not saying Swick hasn't earned the fight against Silva just saying i know he is not ready for him.

One thing I notice is with Franklin and Loiseau... they both were beat up after thier fight.

Loiseau didn't have that spark in his eyes when he and swick fought. as mentioned... he did perk up in the last round but was way behind in points to win.. I think in a 5 rounder he would have won if the last round was any indication.

Franklin on the other hand did not look ready to go against silva. He actually looked scared. I think he wasn't 100% and knew it.

Silva on the other hand took full advantage of franklin's mental state and whooped his arse.

the question now... is franklin done? or can he recoop phisically and mentally to get back on top.

only time will tell.
