Rich Franklin Gets Destroyed
Here's the video for the Rich Franklin-Anderson Silva middleweight title bout from UFC 64. Silva won the belt, pummelling Franklin with vicious knees to the face from the clinch. This video doesn't show it, but after the fight Franklin's broken nose was literally hanging off the side of his face.
Something about Franklin just looked weird in this fight. He looked pale, not as jacked as usual and had this spacey look in his eye. He definitely did not want to be there; almost as if he knew Silva was going to obliterate him. Maybe it was just his injuries or his long layoff or maybe there is more to the story. I guess we'll have to wait for the rematch to find out.
