I really like Franklin, but well past his prime. Should really retire before he does permanent brain damage.
I have to hate on thees'e 2 comments and use my 2000th post to do so.
Quote one I disagree with because a prime Franklin was the kingpin of a very shallow MW division with no one in it as well rounded as him, I do not recall rich ever winning a fight with his grappling ability and I believe a prime Cung would have humiliated Rich worse then the over the hill version did. For the record I didn't give Cung a chance in hell in his recent outing with Franklin.
Quote 2. How do you figure?? when is the last time he has fought a sub par opponent? and I don't see him going to sleep while being sneezed on like Chuck and similar fighters who have been hit one to many times..Rich has a good couple few vanity fights left in him and a job with the UFC when he does decide to hang em up. When Uncle Dana think's it time then it's time, I have heard nothing from Dana suggesting Rich is done and I have yet to see anything in Rich's fighting ability or chin that would make me think he's done.
I guess Bisbing and Reem should retire too? They have both been KTFO more than once and have to be close to Franklins age.
