    fight was a draw. i don't think franklin won it convincingly. wanderlei didn't exactly win it either. both tried hard and deserve much respect.

    That was a hell of a fight, they both gave it their all & that's all I ask for when I put up my 50.00 bucks. I don't believe Rich won all 3 rounds & felt it was an insult to Silva. The guy fights because he loves to & know there are fans out here that deserve to see them go at it, not dance around eachothere for 3 rounds. I thought it was a great night of fights all around, good card,everyone came to fight!!!!

    yea…that should have been a draw. i was really hoping the judges would give in to wand tho. hopefully he will get a few more fights in before he has to retire, because he is what mma is all about. he fights with all hes got, and he never backs off, or runs around trying to get out of danger. he is a true warrior, and a legend in the sport. and i would LOVE to see him fight A.Silva. im sure he wouldnt be scared to stand+bang with anderson, unlike most of his past opponents.

    It was basically a draw, but I bet the knockdown swayed it 2-1 in Rich's favor.

    I hope they don't drop Wandi right in at the deep end at 185 (Okami, Hendo, Bisping or Marquadt)… I'd rather see him fight lower guys for a while and get some solid wins under his belt… What about;

    Ed Herman

    Leban

    Belcher

    If they can start Bisping off with Charles McCarthy and Jason Day – why not ease the Axe Murderer into 185!

    After a few fights there's the likes ofthen maybe

    Cote

    Kendal Grove…

    Leties

    Should be interesting!

    I don't think Wandy would do well at 185. He was gassed at the 195 catch-weight. He had to cut like 20 for the fight. I think 185 is too much for him at this age.
