I am a pretty big Franklin fan, I think he has underrated power in his hands and I felt he beat Dan Henderson. Ace is very well rounded hes good on the ground whether on top or off his back, very good striker, and a good wrestler I think he definetly can be the LHW champ especially now with Shogun having another knee surgery, Rashad not looking that impressive imo, etc.

In what world was the Henderson/Franklin decision "one of the worst of 2009". I thought it was 2 rounds to 1 for Henderson and in no way a horrible decision.

I don't think he could get it anytime soon, just based on how complicated the title outlook is. But he has my respect.

there is no way he gets the lhw belt anytime soon. i could see him fighting for it but not winning. hed either have to fight shogun or rashad from the looks of things. and i dont see him beating either of them. remember he just lost to vitor. i dont know why everyone all the sudden up his ass imo. not trying to bash but ive always respected him and thought everyone else always has. it seems everyone thinks hes the best now that he beat a liddell that should have never been fighting imo. but i still respect franklin just dont think hes gonna win the belt.

The way it looks right now, yes I think he could get the belt...however I don't think he could hold it for long. I'd like to see him fight several of the elite though so I think putting him into contention is the only way. Who wouldn't want to see him fight the likes of Forrest, Rashad, Rampage, Lil Nog, Machida, and Shogun!!

Considering it was REALLY sloppy and he almost got knocked out, not so much on the winning the belt.
