UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva against the former champ Rich Franklin would get his shot at redemption and it’ll come in his hometown of Cincinnati where he was the last time they both fight and rich got knockout. Who do you think will win this fight.

I think it will be a repeat of the first bout, but hopefully Rich will put up a better fight this time. I'm pulling for Ace and give him about a 30% chance of regaining the gold. I will be there live to see it. I'm glad the UFC is coming back to the Midwest. There are lots of MMA fans here.

Franklin looked shook when they showed him in the crowd after Silva dismantled Nate. Silva by (T)KO again.

I think Franklin is in for a beating. Silva is a monster. Silva is on top of his game I don't see anyone stopping him for quite some time. He's like the BJ Penn of the middleweights

I thought Nate had a shot at it, but Silva made a believer outa me. Franklin will get his ass whipped.

I'm just glad nobody yet thinks that Franklin can win. I just think its to early for Franklin to get another shot at the title, same with Matt Hughes... I think Pat Miletich Bangs Dana White in the butt.

Rich Franklin is gonna get his ass handed to him. Again.

The only real question is whether or not he can avoid getting his face rearranged like last time.

I am just basically going to agree with everyone else here lol..Franklin has no shot he is all stand up and is not in Silva's league

Not sure that Franklin gets even a 30%....line'll open at btwn (silva -350)
and (silva -400) ?? Or does that seem too high?

Wayyyyyyyy too high, franklin is a former champ. But it will be a real interesting rematch.

It probably wont be that interesting. It will be 4 minutes of Silva picking Franklin apart and then finishing him with whatever body part he feels like hitting him with.

Franklin has A LOT to work for if he is going to suprise Silva. Silva is, in every sense of the word, a warrior. His game is spot on. Even though he's lost a couple in PRIDE, he always seemed to improve after each fight, win or lose. I like Franklin, he's a good guy, but just on the higher end of average fighters or on the lower end of the exceptional fighters. Silva is creating his own class and you KNOW he doesn't stop until he's out.

I was unsure about him before the Marquardt fight, but not anymore.

It was said before the Anderson/Nate fight that if Anderson wins he'll fight Rich in Cincy, and if Nate wins it'll be in Denver. I live in West Virginia so I'm just 4 hours away. I'm grabbing some tickets as soon as they book the arena lol

Have you watched any of Silva's last 3 fights??? Rich is a good fighter but Silva is on another planet right now. I just don't see rich lasting past the first again. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think I will be.

Last 4 UFC Fights (the only 4) of Anderson Silva

Victory of Chris "Crappler" Leben Knockout (whats new?)
Victory over Rich Franklin via Knockout (Not the same Rich)
Victory Over Travis "Cut Can't Wait" Lutter via Submission due to Strikes
Victory Over Nate "Not So Great" Marquardt via Knockout.

Look at that list, Lutter could not beat him because he gassed and could not make weight so he was tired I gaurentee you that if Lutter came in at the weight during the weigh ins he would have won that fight against Silva.

Franklin was not the same fighter, he looked tired and odd against Silva, but to give credit where credit is due, Silva knocked out Franklin with that Clinch.

Chris Leben is a joke in the UFC.

Nate Marquardt is not as good as everyone hypes him up to be, yes I was one of the one who voted for him to win, but Nate is not that great.

Franklin will win. I just don;t see Silva being that untouchable cloud everybody thinks he is.
