  1. Trevor says:

    He still fights?

  2. CoCiO says:

    as much as i liked rich he got finished twice by silva lol.. shouldn’t get another shot.

  3. Dick Diaz says:

    he should think again lol

  4. mike r says:

    April fools

  5. I like Rich Franklin, he’s good. And a Real Modest fighter. he even says its just because is mentality

  6. the original steve says:

    other than taking a little longer for silva to kick his ass i doubt it

  7. Mav says:

    One of the true gentlemen of the sport. I’m looking forward to seeing him back in the cage.

    • Mike says:

      Seriously. One of the more articulate fighters out there and very respectful for the most part. Always love watching him fight. Can’t wait for this one!

  8. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Rich might be getting another broken arm like Cung’s former opponent Frank Shamrock. I wish both fighters luck.

  9. ya herd says:

    first of rich u couldnt get past vitor, sonnen, bisping, or munoz of how u getn to the spider lmfao

    • ToThaGreenBandit says:

      Fucking fool, Rich never fought Sonnen, Bisping, or Munoz.

    • James says:

      I think Rich could possibly beat Sonnen.

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        Cung is a good test for any striker but I think Rich can beat most of the current MWs. Munoz would probably give him the most problems. I think he can take Vitor in a 2nd fight. Vitor didn’t look that impressive against Rumble.

        • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

          You have admit he got some help from the ref. The outcome of the fight was what everyone wanted.

        • CoCiO says:

          for real..you can only look so dynamic against a guy who bumps up a weigh class ahead of you instead of making weight..and that fight wasn’t a big showcase of vitor..I believe he just didn’t want rumble’s fatass to lay on him the whole fight so he just finished with the sub. Had they stood more Vitor would have knocked him out..

        • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

          @Bla Debla

          Well, it was an entertaining fight I just think Rumble got the raw end of the deal from being stood up too soon. You are correct that Rumble was unprofessional and had a poor attitude. He told all the UFC fans fuck you on his twitter, which is why I said everyone wanted him defeated. Plus Rumble is fighting a veteran/legend. Rumble is little punk who doesn’t respect himself, his opponent or his job and that’s why he got cut.

          @coCIO
          idk man…Vitor looked stunned after Rumble slammed him on his head when rumble caught that sloppy kick. LOL But what you said is pretty much how I felt about that match it didn’t make Vitor look good or bad. It’s good that he won but it was a neutral performance especially when everyone is eyeballing a shot at the belt.

    • jc says:

      fuck your an idiot franklin would take bisping and munoz easily. cheal would be a good fight.

  10. Keith says:

    I thought the 2nd fight would be different, no way could Anderson beat someone up so bad like that twice. … … then he did. Stay away Rich. Stay away.

  11. Class Act says:

    Very difficult to watch Franklin and NOT expect him to break out in a comedic routine, ala Jim Carrey!!! But Franklin is all class. He has been great for the UFC as well as MMA.

  12. DP713 says:

    Great guy and great role model for this sport. I really miss seeing him in the ring. I hope he stays in this sport along time as a fighter or coach. Also, one of the handsomest men in the game! lol

  13. wes says:

    What a horrible way to title this video.

  14. MMACRAVER says:

    Anyone shit talking Rich Franklin is a ignorant fuck…

    He got finished by Anderson Silva twice… SO WHAT! It’s Anderson fucking silva.

    Rich Franklin is awesome to watch fight and has had a great career.

  15. rob says:

    rich must be delusional, silva already destroyed him twice

  16. jbeamazing says:

    hey bitch Franklin why don’t you try to rematch vitor oh wait you can’t beat him ether I would love to see hendo ko him this time they did go split Decision but that was before hendo hooked up with the trt Doc

  17. koolG says:

    Rich who? he’s still around? been quite a while since this dude has done anything worth mentioning..

  18. jonesy says:

    rich is crazy he got fucked up worse in the second fight then in the first…he would get killed again…an dog chapman get a real name loser..

  19. Conditz@fraud says:

    He isn’t in the top 5 middleweights in the world. Sonnen, munoz, bisping, Belfort, … These guys are all in line for the next few title shots. By the time this list finishes Franklin would be the Principal at his school. Hes a joke.

  20. MARV3L0US says:

    He’s getting a easy fight in cung le because cung le shuld definatley be fightin welter weight he’s carrying too much body fat franklin easily overpowers cung le

  21. The Diaz bros like it in the butt says:

    @ya herd first he loss to Vitor due to being hit in the back of the head,it wasn’t on purpose but none the less. 2nd he could hands down beat any of those guys you mentioned especially Bisping, who he is a better version of. Wrestlers are tough for anybody just because of how ignorantly lopsided the scoring is for takedowns

  22. fourtetshou says:

    haha, you can tell Rich is annoyed that people keep referring to him as a school teacher

  23. T.Daddy says:

    yeah they will take rich out on a strecher if they fight again
