OK, ok, now I need to think about not choosing against Silva this time....but I have a feeling whoever I choose the other will win...

Tough fight, gotta go with Rich. I just hope he lasts a little longer this time.

did any of you see silvas last few fights? and the look on rich franklin's face after silva won. hes scared.

dont get me wrong, i think he has potential to win, but so did the people who fight tyson early in his career, they where just scared. just like rich franklin is.

if it goes past the first round, franklin has a guardian angel on his side.

I think this will be a lot closer and longer fight than the first, but with the same outcome.

dont get me wrong i really like both fighters and think either of them could win this fight at any time but like it has already been stated rich hasnt been very impressive in his last fight and silva has, but if rich dosent come out scared to get hit i see the fight ending in the 3 round tko silva still your champ

Look, I love Rich Franklin, but let's try and use our heads instead of our hearts. Silva CRUSHED Frankilin; it wasn't even close. Even after the fight Rich said that he trained specifically for the clinch, thinking he would be dominant there. I don't think anything has changed dramatically enough for Rich to win, unfortunatley. He stand-up is equal, at best, with Silvas', and his ground game is purely defensive while Silva is well-versed in submissions. I hate to say it guys, but I think it's going to be a bad night for Rich.

I hope not, but i think when Rich gets in that cage he gets scared and starts worrin bout that hollywood nose! That was perhaps the dealiest knees ive ever seen in a fight.

Pulln for Rich but thinkin Silva's Precision wins.

The spider is the best mw in the world you would have to be stupid to pick against him especially what he did to rich last time but i think rich might come in a little bit more prepared it should be good i say a 75% chance silva wins though.
