I'm a huge Rich Franklin fan. I love to watch him knock people out. Since his last win over "The Crow", and after his rehab on his hand, who do you think will be ready to challenge him? And, how do you think it will go?:D

Craig, i think franklin will go down. :( That injury will haunt him mentally i believe. He can really mix it up, lets hope his head is ready to stay focused. :thumbsup:

Rampage Jackson

R.J is one of the most brutal pride fighters I have seen he destroyed the Gracie hunter in the last pride championship and also beat the living Poop out of the Iceman Liddell; I think that a showdown between Rich Franklin and Quinton Rampage Jackson would be a nice match up. Hit me up if you think this is a good match in the making. p.s.:D I do know that they are in two different organizations

I'd really like to see Rich take on Chuck. Maybe BJ Penn could move up. Tha'd be a good match.

yea if rich and chuck fought that would be good, and rich is just as big as chuck so i think it would be great, bj would be giving up way too much size

yea dude, that would definatley be a great match up, i think rampage might be a lil big for rich but maybe not, it would be a good fight, but try and think of sum 1 at 185 that can match rich, there isnt ne one, sakuraba , thats it

its a good idea bro, but 1st i wanna see rampage come to ufc to try and win chucks title, i think chuck would win this time around tho, no disrespect to rampage but chuck is on top of his game

Well the UFC have signed Anderson Silva from Pride, and he's a middleweight. So I'd expect the UFC would push for that. Also if Diego Sanchez wins his next fight I guess you'd have to assume he'd be next in line.

I would like to see that. I think they train together though--Franklin would win but it would be a great fight to watch.

rich will stay UFC champ for as long as he wants. i dont think he's the type that would keep fighting once he's past his prime. there is nobody to challenge him in this organization. maybe henderson from PRIDE.

Isn't anderson a pride middle weight? That means by pride's ranking he's 205. That's not the same as rich. Evan Tanner looked really good his last fight i'd love to see another tanner franklin match.

Sakuraba would be a good fight for franklin cause he's smaller then the rest of the pride middleweights. Plus he's one of the best grapplers of all time. He is the gracie killer after all.

I can't agree more. I think Tanner would be a good fight, but it wouldn't be the kind of challenge that Rich needs. He needs someone who could take him hard standing and on the ground. Plus, I love watching short-hand boxing v. long hand boxing, especially when they're both really good.
