Ok so Franklin lost in a big way last night. All I can say is WTF?
It appeared Belfort grazed Rich behind his right ear wich threw off his equalibrium. Franklin ended up on all fours where his was struck with what looked like 2 illegal blows to head. I do think the stoppage was just before those shots landed tho.
It was just a lame performance by Rich in my opinion.
I also would like to state that I don't think Belfort should get a title shot based on that win.
Lets not forget Henderson also beat Franklin and then Bisbing too. With Henderson being a free agent at the moment I wonder if this is a smart move by the UFC to pass him over in favor of the more marketable Belfort/Silva fight.
As for Rich I think the next fight will be Forrest Griffin. Both lost in the same fashion and now need a win. I also think its a fight people would pay to see.

Ok ok here are my UFC 103 predictions short and sweet. Franklin is my boy I have NO DOUBT he will win this fight. And I am so fucking sick of hearing the old Belfort is back.
His 2 fights in the past 2 years were against easy opponents. I'm not saying Lindland is a chump but compared to the 2 opponents Franklin has fought THIS year he is a nobody.
Belfort is by no means an easy opponent for Franklin but Rich wouldn't have it any other way.
I also think Cro cop may still not be use to the cage. I am interested in how he will perform come Saturday night.
So its like this
Koscheck looked in good shape at the weigh-in today. Enjoy the fights guys
Update: Well I fucked that on up lol. Sad day at the Spot

You would think with Rich's fight this weekend I'd be posting all kinds of things. But thats why I have not posted actually.
His fight is the only one on my mind this week to be honest. Rich is like family to me and his family is my second family.
I have no doubt in his ability to win but, in this business you never know. Our prayers are that god keeps Rich and Vitor both safe. I'm sure it will be a great fight and I'll be posting more later this week.
PS I am hearing rumors that Belfort has ringworm.Whats up with that?

Rich just shot a movie between training sessions for this upcoming fight. The movie called "Genesis Code" shot in
Grand Rapids, Michigan last month. It features Academy Award winners Louise Fletcher and Ernest Borgnine, as well as actor and former presidential candidate, Fred Thompson.
Rich plays the part of a hockey coach.
He is currently reviewing 4 different movie scripts for 2010.

MIKE SWICK is OUT of UFC 103 following a training accident suffered while sparring against Josh Koscheck.
Kos swept the American — nicknamed 'Quick' — causing him to land on his head.
His injuries are not serious but we can reveal he will be unable to face Martin Kampmann on September 19.
Instead, rising British star Paul 'Semtex' Daley will step in to face the Dutchman on the televised card of the showpiece event, which airs live on ESPN.
Daley was initially scheduled to make his UFC debut against fellow newcomer Brian Foster on the event's preliminary card, but the Brit will now step into the spotlight in a co-headlining bout against a very tough Martin Kampmann. The Kampmann-Swick fight was intended to determine a number one contender for Georges St. Pierre's welterweight title, but it's likely that those same stakes are no longer on the line. Nonetheless, with an impressive showing against Kampmann, Daley can certainly make much more of an impact on the UFC's 170-lb ladder than he would have with a win over Foster.
All I can say is WTF? I was really looking forward to that fight.

I'm not making this shit up.
The guy who used to play the Green and White Ranger on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is trying to fight with creatures from this planet -- dude is an MMA fighter now.
35-year-old Jason David Frank -- who used to fight inside a friggin' Dragonzord -- just told MMAweekly.com he's hoping to fight inside the UFC octagon.
The 6th degree Black Belt just signed a deal with a new management team and hopes to get in the ring pretty soon. We'll let you know when he actually schedules a fight.

Henderson said if the UFC came to him with a bout against Marquardt, he would turn it down and seek challenges at light heavyweight.
"I think Marquart's right in line for a title shot as well, but I feel I've earned that already," Henderson said. "That's a fight that more than likely will happen in the future, but I think right now, from the UFC's standpoint, they shouldn't be having me and Nate fight each other. They're going to get stuck without any new opponents for Anderson Silva. Silva is the only fight that interests me at 185."
I agree he has earned the shot but,So has Nate. Since a fight with Hendo and Silva has not yet been signed I think Henderson vs Marquardt is logical.
I also think Hendo going to 205 would suck. It's stacked already and I think there are great match ups for him at 185.
But what do I know.
