Um, I gave Franklin a lot of respect. "Rich Franklin is really the only current champion in the UFC that I could see holding the belt for many years to come. He’s pretty young, he has knockout power and is as well rounded as any fighter in the UFC, let alone the middleweight division." is about as much respect as I can give any fighter.
