Log in to Reply master blaster July 24, 2012 r u kidding he doesnt deserve a shot and he is not good enough anymore give the shot to rashad that would be some match Log in to Reply Ozinator July 24, 2012 Especially since Cung may very well kick his ass Log in to Reply jvan July 24, 2012 a fight and win with Cung will get you closer to a re-match better than Catch weight fights. however that being said i don’t think you are a contender right now. Think your heyday is done. Log in to Reply jakelo July 24, 2012 Rematch? 2-0? dafuq? Log in to Reply Muay Thai #1 July 24, 2012 Good for Rich! I’m glad he actually still cares and isnt one of those guys that just fights for a paycheck every once in a while. Log in to Reply Rio_Warrior July 24, 2012 Yes mr ventura, it wont put you closer to a re-re rematch with AS and a loss will put you even farther than you already are. Log in to Reply coutura July 24, 2012 rich whtas the point of fighting anderson ….you want surgery again on the nose Log in to Reply marvelous mad madam mim July 24, 2012 this guy is delusional Log in to Reply Is He Serious July 24, 2012 Rich you couldnt beat the Rich Franklin that got destroyed by Silva the first 2 times why would you want that pain and embarrassment sir. Log in to Reply vaughnrich July 24, 2012 Rich wont be fighting for anymore titles as far as i can see. Log in to Reply dilleywilley July 24, 2012 He is a fighter. What is wrong with him still wanting to be a contender? Log in to Reply SEAN_VANCE July 24, 2012 Rich wants a 3rd nose implant/face reconstruction? Log in to Reply UnbanNickDiaz July 24, 2012 ANderson Silva fights once a year and I DO NOT want the next one to be with Rich. and world ends in December so it doesnt matter anyway Log in to Reply BiuTze July 24, 2012 The fire within him still burns, and he is a gentlemen to boot! Good for him. Log in to Reply Sidekickz July 24, 2012 So many haters, how dare this man want to be champion again! lol you keyboard warriors need a new hobby Log in to Reply Newfie Jitsu July 24, 2012 Why hate Rich for still being hungry. can’t hate him for doing what he loves. His fights are still exciting to watch so let him fight!! Log in to Reply tobes July 24, 2012 Wow! what an army of keyboard warriors. How dare Rich aspire to be one of the best in the world and want to avenge his career defeats to the Spider! What brashness he shows! Do I think Rich could beat Anderson? No. Do I go online and trash him for wanting to get closer to a title shot? No chance. You d***heads need to evaluate your own thoughts before you call someone ‘delusional’. Log in to Reply DavidJones July 24, 2012 franklin against leben would be a great fight.. everyone are starting to get brave cause they think silva is old, so they think maybe he is past his prime. Log in to Reply sins4given July 24, 2012 He’s the reason I wish Strikeforce would have survived. He has nowhere to go. Still a good fighter, but not going to a shot at the title. Fighters like him could have had a second career at StrikeForce..and please before anyone tells me, I am aware that strikeforce is still putting on fights but it’s a joke at this point Log in to Reply Thxer July 24, 2012 Wow, where is this coming from? Who is even talking about a rematch with Rich and Anderson? I think he knows better than to go up against the other top contenders and is hoping for his last shot at greatness by praying for a lucky punch on A.S. …good luck with that Ace. Log in to Reply stevenseagalsprodigy July 24, 2012 Uh, thought rich trained with silva after his last beating on the terms he leave the division or at least not look for a fight with AS again . No one would pay for that fight anyway . Log in to Reply anderson cheats July 24, 2012 Rashad would give anderson a beating,no way could he stop the take Downs,unless he cheats again. Log in to Reply Danby July 24, 2012 I think he’d have a better chance fighting brock lesnar and by that i mean no chance. Log in to Reply cutu2bad July 24, 2012 leave ace alone! you dogs at least his got balls, which is more than can most of the fags around here …. Log in to Reply Genghis Khan July 24, 2012 sorry mate you had your chance… maybe Sonnen would be a more realistic challenge Log in to Reply David July 24, 2012 Dude, just drop to 170. Nobody wants to see you get humiliated. Log in to Reply JoJo July 24, 2012 He’s been very clear about wanting to make another title run. Good luck man! As for all the Anderson Silva talk, you know Franklin is 2 or 3 fights away from a title shot right? Who’s to say Anderson is still the champ then. Also, were he to walk through Cung, Weidman and Bisping he’d have proven himself. Then no matter who the champ is you have to put Franklin in there. Log in to Reply ironfist July 24, 2012 Cung le won’t help and neither did wandy but fighting and beating Bisbing,Stann,boestch,wiedman,munoz,lombard, Sonnen,belcher or rematching belfort will. Plenty to choose from and I for one think ace deserves it if he can beat two to three of those guys in a row. Will he beat Silva prob not. Ace has always been a top middleweight is he still we’ll see Log in to Reply Fightfankevin July 25, 2012 Rich is beyond title contender, let it go, hit a few good paychecks and find a seat in the office beside Chuck. Log in to Reply ruddo293 July 25, 2012 Rich leave the anderson fight alone. You got destroyed twice… It’s not worth it, ask Dana to create a 195lb weight class (super middleweight) for BJ penn 160lb weight class (super lightweight) and a 140lb weight class for Faber (Super Bantamweight) These guys desperately need this weight class implemented in the UFC or might as well retire Log in to Reply skifri3 July 25, 2012 I respect Ace a lot more now… even though he’s older, more banged up, and not the fighter he used to be, he still aspires to be the best! Just compare that to, say, Forrest Griffin or Rampage. Log in to Reply Wilbur July 25, 2012 I think he was funnier in Ace Venture. Log in to Reply wcoastassassin July 25, 2012 Will be someone big on the first show in China, not Rich. Sorry Log in to Reply mmaboxingfan2 July 25, 2012 Rich wont be able too beat silva he almost lost too wanderlei who cant strike. I dont think silva will lose even though hes a cheating little bitch. Log in to Reply FailSonnen July 26, 2012 I dont understand how these guys wanna rush for the title shot with so little recent wins under them plus of course it would make sense that they have to defeat the other top guys first duh Log in to Reply FedorFailsAgain July 28, 2012 Still laughing @ the cry baby Sonnen fans…Oh calling Anderson a ‘cheater’ when Chael injects STEROIDS in his ass every fight? Too funny… Log in to Reply Taboo August 8, 2012 I think Rich Franklin as former champ was 1 of the top contenders against silva,I believe he beat Dan Henderson though robbed of it, Wanderlie both times, chuck liddel, Okami,etc…so the que is who’s the #1 contender? Chris Weidman deserves the shot, fact is Rich and GSP won’t be able to fight silva before silva gets matched up finally…Reshad maybe but he’d have to go for take downs for sure, and not be afriad and think he’d be to flat. So sure Weidman or evans but wideman’s already a ready middleweight. Had hector won he’d be up next but weidman’s prob better. hewctoprs good but should be at welterweight and cut some muscle mass… Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
