    I actually invision this fight going eerily similar to Randy/Tito, in regards to Rich being a pretty solid wrestler, but nowhere near Randy and I see him getting grinded on and rushed. If Rich stays away, I think he can catch Randy, but I don't think his striking is great enough to outpoint Randy for all three rounds without succumbing to the takedown or clinchwar.

    Randy via UD.

    I went with Randy. The guy would just take Ace down at will, GnP or get a UD. Rich has a chance but i'd give the edge to Randy... Deadliest Warrior reference... nice.

    I think Randy can get Rich to his back and GnP to a win.

    Rich Franklin vs Randy Couture

    I think it's a stellar match up between a great game-planner and a guy who is so well rounded and comfortable wherever the fight goes in Ace...Who do you think takes it and why?
