I don't know how many of you are mixed martial arts fan, but UFC 64 was brutal. It blew me a away that Rich Franklin got beat in 3 minutes! His nose was definately broke! He didn't look healthy either, but he is a champion.

I bet you dollars to donuts that he gets his title back.

Yeah I was shocked he got beat that handily.However I knew Anderson Silva was the real deal when he flogged Chris Leben as bad as he did.Don't know how long it'll be before Rich gets another crack.That nose looked terrible...Also the upcoming Pride card looks to be the best MMA event this year,on paper at least.

Franklin didn't look healthy. He had a black eye and just didn't look right to me.He said that he underestimated Silva and his muai ty neck grip. He actually thought that when Silva did that he would be in his sweet spot. A good Muay Ty fighter can keep a fighter off balance with that hold why setting him up for knee strikes. That is exactly what he did! I bet Franklin has some broken ribs too!

Every fight I've seen Chris Leben in, he has got his a-- beat!

If Franklin gets another chance, which I'm sure he will I would be willing to bet it will be a different fight. I don't know who could take Silva now?? Swick, the Crow, I don't see it!

Yeah I agree, Rich is still the biggest, and only real threat to Silva.Swick has been looking good, but I think he's still a ways away from fighting the divisions elite.UFC's stable of fighters is just overall very weak compared to Pride's stable.Only dominant champs UFC has are Liddell and Hughes in their respective weight classes.Rich seems like a decent guy, and he looked great up until this fight.Hope he comes back strong.

I can't remember the fighter's name, but he fought Kenny Florian for the lightweight class ( great fight). I think his name is Shreik or something like that. He looks like a mini-Hughes and I think he will dominate that class.

I think Franklin had to diet pretty hard to get to 185lbs. I believe that may have been his problem. He may have gone down to quickly.

Luddell is going to send Tito and his girlfriend Jenna Jameson packing. Luddell beat him like a bad puppy in the last go around.

Yep I agree with marcus.Chuck Liddell will crush Tito Ortiz yet again,this december when they rematch.Tito ducked him for so long last time because they were at one point training partners, and chuck bludgeoned him on a regular basis.I just don't think Tito can get Chuck on the ground, and on their feet it's not even close.Chuck by whatever he wants.

ur opinion sux weevil, ill beat u up over it. not really lol... tito isn't as bad as he use to be, he's grown up some I believe..

I think the chuck and tito fight will be pretty crazy, I like both fighters... tough


marcus: shawn the muscle shark sheirk is the guy that fought kenny.. kenny was a tough little guy, and shawn is pretty quick to be bulky... great fight it was

Yeah he has grown up a bit, but that's due to getting his arse handed to him a couple times,which humbled him a little.I don't really despise him or anything, just don't like him or his attitude, so I generally pull against him versus anyone else.It will be a fight regardless when they rematch.And yeah Sherk is a pretty tough guy, Florian gave him all he wanted in that fight though.Pride's next card is the one to watch, it's loaded top to bottom.
