    I dunno either but I think its possible if he improves as a fighter, cuz Franklin really did nothing to cause David to fight the way he did.. David fought that way from beginning to end.. I dunno what his deal was, maybe he was scared out of his pants, maybe that was his strategy, who knows but if David would of tried to take Franklin to the ground and exchange blows with him it would of been a better fight.. maybe David saw what he did to Nate Quarry and decided he didnt wanna get KO'd the same way? who knows, it was the weirdest thing ive ever seen though, and I feel bad for David cuz hes better then that and that fight really took a blow to his name.

    David knocked him down once throughout the whole fight, the only time he actually gave any offense.. I am throughouly disappointed with that fight, I think David could of a done a whooole lot better even in a losing effort.

    I say David Terrel will be the next champ after he gets his revenge on Tanner.

    ey im a big Loiseau fan, but Loiseau got dominated and it was painful to watch, even if he had capitalized on that knockdown and won the fight it wouldnt of been in convincing fashion.

    he dominated all those fights. Tanner didn't almost KO him, he chin checked him and Franklin got right back up and made Tanner look like the Elephant Manby the end of the fight. I think you are letting your hate for Franklin get in the way of your judgement.

    I say Anderson Silva will be the next MW champ, but I think Rich will beat him first and Silva will win the 2nd one.. AA-Silvia style except no luck will be involved, yea im getting a little bit ahead of myself but eh.. who cares.

He's the man right now until someone proves otherwise.
    dominating fashoin?by beating a tuf guy?By almost getting KOed by Tanner and the crow i wouldn't say that's domianting fashion it's only a matter of time untill we see a new MW champ.

    I don't get the overrated thing either. Franklin is 20-1 with his only loss to Machida who is undefeated with wins over other UFC favorites BJ Penn and Stephan Bonnar. Franklin has beaten every challeneger to his title so far. He beat the crap out of Loiseau, who many had as a very legitimate threat before the fight. He even had Loiseau running from him, which I have never seen Loiseau do against anybody. Franklin isn't unbeatable, but he is definitely worthy of the credit he gets.
