    UFC 64: Franklin vs. Silva






    Who's everyone got? Probably Franklin's toughest fight yet. May be a mistake to stand with Silva, but I have a feeling Franklin is going to do it anyway. Here's the undercard:

    Sean Sherk Vs. Kenny Florian
    Jon Fitch Vs. Kuniyoshi Hironaka
    Cheick Kongo Vs. Carmelo Marrero
    Spencer Fisher Vs. Dan Lauzon
    Keith Jardine Vs. Mike Nickels
    Yushin Okami Vs. Kalib Starnes
    Justin James Vs. Clay Guida
    Kurt Pellegrino Vs. Junior Assuncao

    I got Franklin. I just think he's too well rounded. I'm pretty sure I heard Silva has a nice JJ game, but Franklin is decent too and is kinda tough to take down. I think this one may go at least 3 or 4 rounds.

    Silva and Franklin are evenly matched hypothetically.

    Franklin looked completely outclassed. You could see it in Franklin's eyes after the first set of knees to the body he recieved that he knew he couldn't win. That clinch was WAAAY too much for him. From what he said afterwards it seemed like that (the clinch) was going to be his gameplan to neutralize Silva's striking power. Guess that backfired....

    His fucking nose was mangled from that knee.

    I was hoping Guida's trainer was going to shave his head between rounds, goddamnit that was annoying.

    Wow Franklin got fucked up! His nose was a wreck. No contest, he didn't even put a scratch on Anderson. Finally a fucking upset!!!

    Lol. Me and my friends were saying the same thing. You'd think it would benefit him to at least tie it up or something.

    As for Franklin/Silva, major props to Silva as he completely dominated Franklin easily. I was surprised it was that simple for him. Why Franklin didn't rip out of the clinch I don't know, but Silva capitalized and mauled him ala Chris Leben. It looked like Rich was a little afraid in there standing. He didn't look like his normal confident self. What's in store for the both of them now? Marquadt/Silva, Swick/Franklin or Silva/Swick? All I know is that someone better take Anderson Silva down quick to stand a chance.

    Great night of fighting. What I thought was a weaker card turned out to be the best all year

    Agreed, I thought it turned out to be a great card. Fitch looked impressive, and Florian showed enough heart to make a lopsided fight interesting at least.

    I just watched a fight of Silva vs. Jeremy Horn. It seems to me that a fighter like Ortiz would be able to pick Silva apart. Horn had no trouble taking him down and with Ortiz's ground and pound it might be a mismatch. Apparently Silva's original intent was to fight at 205 and take on Liddell. Hopefully he goes up because there is NOBODY at 185 right now that stands a chance IMO. I don't think Liddell would even fare well as dominant as Silva looked tonight, but a ground and pounder like Ortiz just might do the trick.

    Sherk was spouting blood that entire fight. Florian shorts were soaked with it along with the rest of him. Bloodiest fight I have seen.

    The bloodiest I have ever seen was @ UFC 61. It was Yves Edwards, when Joe Stevenson split him open. This was definitely a close second though.

    Alright I was at a bar watching the fight so didn't really here any of the commentary. But what was the deal with Frankling not getting out of the Mauy Thai Clench? You would think he would learn pretty quick that shit this ain't working lets take it to the ground.

    From what it sounded like, the Muay Thai clinch was going to be Rich's strategy to win the fight. I think it was more of a pride thing him not getting out of it. Silva's strikes are so sharp, he didn't get a second round to re-think that gameplan......

    There was some amazing camera angles and shots during the fight. It was unreal seeing the knees in slowmo and seeing franklins nose on theside of his face.

    I have said Franklin's overrated. But Silva isn't exactly a middleweight fedor.

    Yup the Yves Edwards cut @ 61 and the Edwin Dewees cut from this season of the UF Show both come to mind as the bloodiest.
