Dont think Frankiln match up will interest machida's new wage demands
Chris Leben has always seemed to be Dana's saving grace. He has saved more cards than any fighter I can think of.
why wud chris leben fight him at 205 :s that makes no sense
Remember Rich has fought at 185 and 195
Machida is coming off a win, isnt Franklin coming off a loss? that match up doesnt make sense if that is the case
Damn Franklin, when's that black eye gonna go away?
The Bader match-up makes the most sense to me, too bad Tito wan't still available.
I'm guessing the Hamill/Gustafsson match will get scraped n Gustafsson will face Franklin
Stephan Bonnar was one of the ideas to face Franklin in the first place, he should get the fight, or else it should be Ryan Bader
I would just like to see Franklin win
i could see machida step in in an attempt to get back into Dana's good graces
Chris Leben is a MW and Franklin is fighting at LHW now, so why is he even on the list?
@ Raze - Apparently, Leben offered to step in to fight Rashad on short notice, thus offering the possibilty that he is prepared to take a fight against a LHW on short notice.
The same with Sonnen as well. Who has actually stated in the past that he had called out Franklin on many occasions. But Sonnen has not made this list probably because of his scheduled fight with Stann, I assume.
Sonnen is not going to call out Franklin..Unless he changes his name to Rich Silva
bonner vs fraNKLin would be a very fun match up but i think hes injured at the moment which is a shame
Mousassi just fought and has no injuries. I would love to see him fight someone of Franklin's level , just to see if he really is top 5 in the world.
considering rich franklin isnt even top 10, i dont see how you would get your answer off this fight
none of the fighters mentioned above make sense,new poll please,thanks!!!!!
and the winner issssss MATTF
Why isn't Tito Ortiz on that list?
Nobody is replacing Little Nog.
UFC pulled Rich Franklin out of the event.
Co main event is now Belfort vs Aikiyama
Ebersole vs Hallman have been promoted to the PPV
Machida or Shogun would be great fights! They would both be great stand up matches!
