I believe Rich Franklin will make NO excuses for this fight, and will take responsible for his actions, with or without the Evil Empire.
You actually had doubts that Rich lost that fight? And that he got his ass whooped in a "very decisve manner"? What is this "I believe..." business?
Its people like you who keeps bringing this dumb thread back. Franklin's wife was crying because Rich got his ass whooped. Rich had absolutely no problem going into the fight so stop making dumb excuses for the guy. Middleweight in UFC is just horrible and Rich was champion among bad fighters. He just got owned by a better fighter and he had no disadvantages going into the fight apart from his skills.
How did he all of sudden forget how to get out of the clinch? He didnt forget! Silva had him and Rich just couldnt get out of it.
