    I picked Silvia too even though its real hard to pick on this one. Just have a gut feeling about it.

    I'm predicting this fight is stopped by the ref in the 3rd round around 4:00 when Rich Franklin can't keep the blood from going into his eyes.

    it should prove that you have a ground game or the ability to have a ground game

    Gonna be a great one for sure. I'm picking Silva just due to the fact that I don't think Franklin has faced a striker of his caliber since Lyoto Machida and we all know what happened there.

    It is going to be an amazing fight- I really hope anderson wins- but Franklin is...good

    In Silvas past fights he has only had two real losses to crazy submissions(and one from illegal kick which if I remember correctly was unintentional but his opponent was unable to continue, and a split decision w/ L Azzerado). And as a Thai fighter ridiculous elbows* and inside clinch work. He truly is a threat to Franklin. Now I do feel 7 out of 10 times Franklin would win most likely a decision victory w/ Anderson simply because of his slow and steady aggressive clinch work.

    I'm not gonna flip flop, I picked Franklin by Submission in a thread a couple weeks ago and am sticking with it.... So in our predictions it's pretty much me and Clint vs the world
