Source: Rich Franklin on Anderson Silva: "I believe with another shot I can win that fight"

 
Well he's dropping back to middleweight so I guess we'll see if he can work his way back up. I'd like to see him against Bisping actually.

I guess he wants the trifecta of rhinoplasty surgeries.

3rd time is not a charm in this case. Phone Post

Franklin is the ultimate badass for shit like this. This is a man who was beaten senseless by Anderson twice... Who had his appearance changed by him, his title taken away by him, and who had to change weight classes because of him? And he says LET'S GO AGAIN?!?!

Rich Franklin, you are a man among men, and I will always respect you. Phone Post

I'm not so sure about a third fight. Has Franklin improved that much from the last fight between the two? What would Franklin bring different to the table this time? Tough questions to answer. I would like to see fight Bisping tough.

Please no. Anderson likes Rich and has twice re-arranged his face. A 3rd fight and Rich may die.

Hawkeye02 - Would Rich take TRT for this fight?

Wouldn't be a bad idea.

hopefully AS spares him from this 3rd meeting by refusing the fight. The man has beaten him senseless no one will say much if AS refuses the fight.

Yes, he is a much better fighter. Footwork is far beyond what it used to be, power is much better, etc.

To date, he has had the most success against Anderson standing (even compared to Chael who rocked Anderson twice).

I'm not certain he'd win tho. Phone Post

I like Rich but he's already had two chances against Anderson.

Rich is one of my all time favorite fighters but there was nothing in the 2 fights that suggest he has a chance against Silva. Unfortunately both fights were severely one sided in favor of Silva

Franklin is the definition of a fighter though. Win, lose or draw he's gonna fight anyone they put in front of him

This reminds me of when some were talking about a jbj/Hammil rematch and someone said, "why do u guys want Matt dead". I feel that way about Rich in this one.... Phone Post

Seriously, I don't think even CRE or the biggest Silva haters would give Rich a chance here.

This is one trilogy that's just not meant to happen.
