Forrest vs Franklin is gonna be sick! Forrest by submission round 3.
I don't see Franklin getting sub.
Rich has been training BJJ for a very long time and although Griffins ground game is very good i dont see him subing Franklin.
Forrest via Decision after 15 minutes of nonstop action
Forrest by Submission? when has Forrest ever submit anyone in the UFC? and dont dare to mention Shogun because that was one of the worst chokes i ever seen! that was not even half of Shogun the one who was in that fight.
Besides Franklin Ground game IS actually good! unlike Forrest's
i See Franklin taking a dominant win by Decision or a late TKO.
Forrest is the one with the blackbelt. And the chocke probably looked bad because of forrests shoulder injury.
OOOOOOOHHH im so Fcking scared yeah i he submitted shogun and got submission of the night for you guys who say forrest suck and he got lucky agians tito, rampage and shogun and shit are clearly mad cuz he beat all your idols! and yeah forrest is the one who holds a black belt under Robert Drysdale i believe who is one of the best bjj coaches in the world.
Rigo was correct get over it
Hey HC if Forrest wins send me a hahaha message on my wall and Ill do the same when Franklin wins.
he may got submission of the night because it was probably the only one and because it was Shogun , but the submission itself was horrible kinda like the one Cro Cop put on Pat Barry.
and i never say he got lucky on anyone he has beat guys fair and square but he is not better than Shogun or Rampage.
and i was happy to see him beating Tito.
But he wont Submit Franklin, that's just the truth.
and if this Robert Drysdale really gave Forrest a Black Belt in BJJ then he is not that good as they say. Period.
i wont spend my time to do such a childish thing i know you would cuz you are maby 10 years old or somthin.
Dont dare mention shogun getting submitted? that is just stupid man! give Forrest the respect he deserves.
I do respect Forrest i just hate the hype on someone unjustified.
hes a good fighter but he is not near the top level guys in the division.
he may beat Franklin but he wont by Submission thats 4 sure.
The thread pic shows Franklin with an arm sling ironic huh?
franky boy all day
franklin has better technique, quicker, and has better ko power. i see ACE taking this one
this is a fight that can easily go either way
Yea it's very hard to pick. Of course I'm going for Rich though! ....by decision. That's my lowkick pick haha.
Franklin will finish Forrest that I am sure
imagine being able to say that Rich Franklyn was your math teacher back in high school
yeah you just say, wait till i get my teacher, he'll f u up
This is a perfect matchup for both fighters, and makes for an exciting fight.
The "two dogs staring through the cage" comment said by Rogan in the begging of the vid was for the Liddel vs Silva fight. Way to recycle UFC, very "green" of you...
I want to see franklin regain his shine, but i also want to see forrest prove himself in the LHW division...just not that much against franklin
i think it will be interesting to see griffin after being out this long if he preforms im really looking forward to this fight as both fighters have an exciting style and although i beleve franklin is technicaly the better fighter forest has size and it wouldnt be the first time he pulled an upset (shogun rua) although if i had to pick franklin by UD
The fight is on Feb 5th, not the 6th as stated on the story above, dimwit.
Man Rich is looking SHREDDED in those promo shots. I think he can take this; his boxing has been looking better and better, Forrest has no chin and I think that Franklin can knock him out. Third round tko for Rich
I disagree. He's shown that he has a decent chin. Not to many people can take accurate punches to the chin in mma.
I'm starting to dislike Forrest a bit. Not as a fighter, but as a person. Same old dry humor, avoiding real questions. I still like him as a fighter, and believe he still go for the title shot, maybe not win but defiantly a contender. I do see Rich taking this fight. I think Rich is quicker and will be able to tag FG easier. Forrest would have to Couture Rich to win this fight.
wow...there are alot of forrest fans here...damn u white ppl
alot of people hate on forrest and thats ok, it jus makes it better if he wins. i think its goin to be an awesome fight. i got forrest by split decision. im a huge fan of forrest and franklin and i dont understand why people talk crap about interviews with forrest. he never talks crap about anyone but himself, hes always honest and thats hard to come by in this sport. i think the winner of this fight should fight the winner of rampage vs silva (if it happens), which i am hopin to see a rampage vs forrest 2
I like Forrest and Ace and honestly I don't want to see any of them lose. They are probably the most liked fighters in the UFC. Quick note Ace and Forrest have coach together in TUF when Tito Vs Liddle TUF season was on.
