    Dude, I was almost in tears for the guy as bad as that sounds. Nuthugger or not, you gotta cringe for the beating he took. His wife was balling, he was in the clouds and his nose was in left field!

    Never has a Champion AS GOOD AS Franklin taken a beating like that. AMAZING Clinch, WHO CAN BEAT SILVA?!?!?! Obviously a G-N-P guy but MAN, that was something to leave a fan SPEACHLESS!!!

    As a pride nuthugger, even i thought the fight was gonna be WAY closer than that. This is the outcome i wanted though. I like it better when shit gets shaken up.

    I like that too, but as a Champ I don't know many guys who ALL AROUND was a better Champ, maybe that's why I felt that way for him, but seeing anyone get hurt like that makes your heart go out to them if you have one. :)

    im watching it again and again. i mean, no matter wtf he does he cant escape the clinch. he's squriming around like a damn retard but he doesn't push off on silva's biceps/elbows or anything. maybe he got seriously fucked up by the first few knees

    Why does it always have to be that way? Why can't a+ show in Pride be an a+ in UFC? I sure as hell think it works that way. Don't be an organization nuthugger :rolleyes:

    its true though, he was not top level in pride by any means. there is no reason he would go from pride to ufc becasue the money for losers in pride is still 2 or 3 times what it is in the ufc. I was not trying to be a nuthugger only telling the truth

    This was the real life version of the first half of Rockey 3, now that I think about it. Pretty boy champ got beat by a real fighter....will franklin come back and win a rematch NO

    Don't feel bad at all. Loved seeing him get his a$$ whopped like that! I doubt Franklin would even want a rematch unless he wants another a$$ kicking.

    I think when Franklin comes back to try and reclaim his title, he'll do alot better since he'll train the shit out of clinch defence. He'll still get his ass rocked though.

    Then Phil Baroni ( D guy in the UFC, B- guy in Pride) must be on a different dimension. :eek3:

    God help us!!!! :rolleyes:

    We are turning into Sherdog!!! :ugh2:

    Oh, I LOVE Silva, I was rooting for him the whole time!!! He is the best, and who was that Franklin guy??? Franklin sucks and could never beat him. Same with that Couture guy after he lost two times in a row, man he sucks tooo cause he got beat bad!!!

    It is called "Flavor of the Month Bandwagon Jargon" Those of you in this thread comparing fighters to Pride, UFC, one fighter better then the other like this need to find a new fucking sport. Get the fuck out of Off Topic Cage, and definitely get the fuck out of MMA all together. God I hate posting with some of you.

    he is 3-2 in pride and 3-5 in UFC he was/is a C level guy in both

    but either way Chonan beat Silva by a Submission (Flying Scissor Heel Hook) like that happans all the time
