Agreed. This fight sucks for Hendo. He doesn't gain anything.

Rich can avenge his loss and get another pay check. I don't think Rich sees himself getting a title anywhere until Silva Retires.

I thought Rich wanted to move up to 205? I guess he realizes that he cant beat Silva and he cant beat Machida so he will just fight where ever.

exactly. Take the fights you can that keep your profile high so when A.Silva steps down he can own his division again.

I believe Rich is #2 at MW and if Silva retires Rich can rule again.

I would rather see that aswell.

I think Henderson would win...and then Franklin could challenge


Henderson nearly won last time...he just made a mistake that was all.

Are we looking at this the wrong way...are they trying to avoid anyone fighting Silva because they dont trust him to fight properly now? surely they cant be trying to Save Silva...he evidently doesnt need help there...But He's not been fighting to the best of his ability recently
