"I won’t rest well until we have a chance to get better acquainted inside the octagon. I want a rematch."

:unsure-1:

From his blog, He also says he's not pissed at losing because he says thats what you get if you leave it to the Judges Decision, you run that risk no matter your performance.

Good news though...although his eye looks...well like a fried egg thats been stampped on....

"Everyone has been asking about his eye- from the eye poke at the end of the fight- and we are happy to say he doesn’t need surgery. He does have a cut on the white part of his eye and a slight tear, but it doesn’t require surgery"

The way I look at it if they fought 10 times Franklin would win 5 times and Hendo would win 5 times. I think they are very very evenly matched.

The UFC should have a senior citizens league where big names of old can fight each other and not have to get embarrased by the youngins. There are a lot of great fighters who are still great, but are not going to be winning any belts anytime soon. These would include:

Liddell, Couture, Hendo, Franlin, Shogun, Wandi, Coleman, etc.

I need to repeat myself. These guys are great fighters and can beat 95% of the MMA world, but I just dont see Liddell (who once had a 10 fight win streak but now lost 3 of his last 4 fights... with his only win coming from Wandi who lost 4 of his last 5 fights) coming back and beating Lyoto, Rashad, Forest etc.

Franklin and Shogun aren't that old. You make it sound like we should lead them all out to pasture and put them down. Just because they may not ever see gold again means they should step aside and let the 'youngins' take over? Amazing how times have changed and people forget...two years ago Randy is a hero for being in his 40s and winning the HW title. This is MMA, anything can happen.

As for Hendo and Rich, I would love to see it again.

The only reason Rich and Hendo arent gonna see any belts anytime soon is b/c A. Silva is the champ and NO ONE can beat him right now. It doesnt mean that they are over the hill.

And he should get a rematch as soon as possible. That was a crap win for Hendo because if he hadnt kicked Rich in the nuts and damn near poke his eye out it would have ended differently I'm convinced.

:unsure: he didnt kick Rich in the nuts...he headbutted him, that was round one...eye poke was round three...Franklin won round two :laugh:
