Default Franklin to fight A. Silva in Cincinnati is........

Total ****ing bullshit....

After the Franklin-Mcdonald fight, Franklin calls out Anderson to the octagon and informs him that that he and Dana White had agreed to a fight for the title in Rich's hometown Cincinnati....

Excuse-****ing-me......but what? Silva is the champion and brutally kicked Richs ass!
Dana and Rich talked about this behind Andersons back and behind closed doors? they by-passed the champ.....

Does the champion have no say on the matter? Does he not even get to have a discussion on where the fight will be held? The challenger gets to dictate and discuss with the owner of the organization where the fight will be held but not the champion?

Complete ****ing bullshit. Anderson is getting screwed big time here, the UFC is clearly biased and is favoring Rich, the first title fight was in Ohio and now this one is too?

I can't believe they ignored Anderson and decided where the fight would be without consulting him.......he had to be told by Franklin after a match! WTF is with that?

Its unfair on the champion.

I'm not saying it should be in Brazil, it should be in Vegas, which is where Anderson says he would have preferred it.
This is the UFC clearly showing they don't want Anderson to be champion and are hoping for Rich to win the belt back.

I don't know whats worse, if its the bias nature of where the event is being held or the fact they didn't even consult the champion about it and let the challenger dictate where it would be and then force the champion do fight with the crowd totally against him.

Its grade-A bullshit.

I think it's bad for Franklin. Now all his friends and family get to see him get his shit pushed in live.

In my opinion, I think this puts even more pressure on Franklin and only adds a little excitement. Silva won't mind winning in front of Franklins friends and family. I wouldn't be surprised to see Matt Huges and Tim Sylvia thrown on the card as well, being that they're from the area.

Do you think that Silva cares? Of course he doesn't. That fight being in Cincinnati only insures the place will be packed to the rafters and everyone gets payed trunk loads of cash, including sponsership money. The octagon is the same no matter where it is sitting. However, it only makes sense to make the most profitable decisions as to where the fights should take place.

Oh man up, it's gonna sell out the show, Ohio has had the best fans of any UFC show yet, and I don't think Curitiba is on the list of possible host citites just yet.

Franklin is one of my favorite fighters, but he is going to get absolutely clobbered again. I wish he would wait a few more fights because I don't want to see poor Beth cry again when he's a bloody wreck. Rich, milk a few more fights, please!

You know, I really hope they go to Brazil soon. Same time zone, so a PPV would be fine here, and with Anderson, Shogun, Babalu, Wandy, etc they could fill a soccer stadium down there.
