Anyone think the outcome will be different thiss time?

If so how will Franklin do it?

I think Rich will fare better but get taken out again on stand up.

Silva smashed him the last time around and I expect a similar result this time around. Like Liddell with Rampage, I believe Franklin fears Silva and thus cannot beat him.

Silva will beat him, but I think it will not be as one sided as their first bout.
Silva by way of knockout in the second round.

:nonono: i don't know why everyone is counting rich franklin out....sure he got beat bad last time but don't u think a professional fighter can learn from that fight.Also gotta mention Anderson Silva's weak takedown defense, i think Franklin will b strong enough 2 control him and probably pound Silva out,
or do enough on the ground 2 pull off a decision.
my prediction is a Rich Franklin win.
peace.

Lol, no need to take offense brah.. You want to go out on a limb and pick a major upset?? Fine be me. However, a Silva KO is the far more likely senario.

lol no offense taken, jus surprised franklin is gettin written off so easy, yup i'll pick rich franklin 2 win this weekend ground and pound victory, like i mentioned earlier silva was taken down so easy by his last 2 opponents, sure he won but i still think franklin is strong enough2 control silva on the ground.
peace.

this fight should be good, regardless of the outcome. as much as i want to see rich win it, i dont see that happening in the standup. if he can get to the ground press silva against the cage and get punches in, i think he's got a shot. if the fight stays standing, silva by ko, round 3.

Yeah, basically Rich's only chance is to take it to the ground I think... hopefully for his sake he's been working on the takedown/ground game and will have a proper strategy this time (e.g., aside from sluging it out). However, Silva sorta outclassed him the last time out, and I think he KOs him again. And Silva'll probly be expecting Rich to try and take it to the ground, so that'll only make it tougher.. Silva may punish him as he comes in.
