    I believe there was something wrong with Rich Franklin before the fight.

    I believe there were reports of his wife crying in the audience before and/or during his entry.

    I believe Rich Franklin got his but kicked in a VERY DECISIVE MANNER.

    I believe Rich Franklin lost his title.

    I believe Rich Franklin will make NO excuses for this fight, and will take responsible for his actions, with or without the Evil Empire.

    Franklin made it clear he hadn't prepared properly when, unbelievably, he said he thought the clinch would be his 'sweet spot.' That was an insane belief, and made it obvious he hadn't considered Silva's Muay Thai skills properly.

    at 1 point in the ring when he tried to intelligently retaliate you can literally see him mentally give up and just throw 2 wild punches

    question: Do you fight?
    Yeah, he had the same look in his eyes that alot of Mike Tyson's competition did. Fear!

    I don't think he can afford to go train in Thailand with how little the UFC is paying him.

    Rich was vomiting and shitting water cause he was scared shitless (get it? )
    All I saw on his face was lack of preparation
    I do agree he was not confident, dude's prolly in Thailand as we speak learning MT fundamentals
    He needs to come out and speak for himself on what happened he doesn't have that much to be ashamed of...
    Until then "save the rumours for the losers"

    There was footage shown of Rich in his dressing room.

    Geez I didnt think the post on the rumor would cause such an uproar. I mean yeah Rich had a very odd look on his face coming to the octagon and yes his chick was crying. Regardless of all that I dont see that causing him to get manhandled as bad as he did. Maybe if the rumor is true that would be some of the reason but he was outclassed big time and Rich will have to train harder and differently if he ends up in the octagon with Silva again.

    Damn!!! No shit! Although i haven't heard Rich make an excuse yet.
    Exactly. Everyone else is making the excuses. He hasn't come out and said anything yet. Here is my take on it. I can believe that he was sick before the fight. That is not hard to believe. But who can say for sure that he didn't want to fight? Maybe he was sick and puking and dehydrated,etc...and maybe he still wanted to fight. Even though a guy wants to fight, if he is that sick he is not going to be able to put up a 100% healthy fight. I have been sick like that before and you don't feel like doing anything much less fighting. So maybe he wanted to fight as to not look like he was scared by backing out. And maybe he was sick which would explain his performance. But, he will come back and hopefully be 100% healthy the next time they fight. And to everyone that has jumped on Silva's bandwagon now...Franklin will win the fight next time!!
