Default UFC 77- 10/20 Franklin/Silva in Cincinatti

Looks like Franklin gets his rematch against Silva in his hometown. Rich Franklin is one of my favorite fighters, but even in front of his hometown, I don't think he (or any middleweight) will be able to dethrone Silva. I'll cross my fingers though.

You've obviously never seen Paulo Filho fight then have you, not that they would fight each other(as their friends).

I think you're right. I do believe Franklin can win, but I'm not betting on it.

Silva wasn't even the best in Pride mate

So you didn't answer my question, have you seen a full Filho fight, not just highlights on youtube?

I wasn't talking about fighters in Pride, but UFC. I'm sure there is someone in MMA that could defeat Silva, however, they're not fighting in the UFC at the moment.

I didn't ask who he was, I simply stated I didn't know. I am familiar with Pride but have not followed it as nearly as closely as the UFC. I apologize for my overall lack of knowledge in the world of MMA, Mr. Almighty MMA lord. Please forgive me!

Your a ****ing asshole. One of those elitist faggot fans who get angry when someone tries to take interest in their sport. Go **** yourself seriously. who gives a shit if he is JUST knowledgable on the UFC? The UFC has reached a hell of alot of people and generated a shit-load of interest that Pride or other organizations never had. What is a new fan of the UFC supposed to do? Research the history and landscape of MMA, watch 1,000 hours of tape from different organizations before they can speak their opinion about anything pertaining to the sport?????? What the **** do you care anyway? Franklin was widely recognized as a top 3-5 middleweight in the world before Silva beat him, maybe even #2.....and now that Hendo has said he won't come back down it isn't too far from the realm of possibility that the man that ****ing destroyed him and everyone else since may be close to the best fighter at the weight at this given time. What there was no room for improvement in Silva's game? Recently the guy has looked incredible and I'd agree, it is going to be real hard to comfortably favor anyone currently in 185lbs over him.
