    I haven't seen many people say Franklin is overrated. If there is a large group of people with that mindset, I guess keep watching. I don't know what he's got to do to prove how good he is, he's beating every top challenger in dominating fashion. He's exceptional in every area of fighting. He's the man right now until someone proves otherwise.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

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

    i dont know what fights you were watching if you say he almost go KOed by tanner and the crow. ninjashogun explained most of it, but did you see tanners face after that fight and the crow got fucking destroyed.

    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.
