Belfort's in the twilight of his career, and Franklin's juuuust good enough to decision him.

Belfort in the twilight of his career is a little harsh, the guy still has some good years left. He's got one-punch KO power and he's great on the ground. If he shows up in the right frame of mind Rich Franklin don't have a chance.

I acutally think dos Santos/Cro-Cop is the real toss-up.

There you go. Easy work for Belfort. Dos Santos pulled off the mild upset (to some) with his win over Cro-Cop. I figured that one would be a toss-up, and it was. Cro-Cop should hang 'em up, his heart is gone.

Im glad Vitor took it he was one of the fighters that got me into MMA back in 97'.

Latley he's been looking good i think he can some success in the UFC as long as he stays away from Anderson.

Anyone got a HL of the KO.

I always thought Franklin was overhyped by the UFC when he was champ. Looks like I was right.

Man, belfort has some fast hands and power. He caught franklin with barely a grazing shot and still dropped him like a bullet

This really was the best oucome for the ufc. Franklin can now move up and see what he has a light heavy, because he has no chance at beating silva. Belfort on the other hand is a legitimate threat to anderson silva. World champ brazilian black belt, super fast super powerful fists. Anderson is better at kicking and has better knees, but i reckon belfort has better hands and probably an equal if not superior JJ game.

I hope this fight comes soon. Belfort is a dangerous mother fucker. Anyone who saw matt the law lindland twitching violently on the ground after getting caught by belfort knows the phenom is for real. 31 years old, the dude is in his prime

Belfort found great success at a young age, fell off for years, and is now back makin' a run....so instead of being in an early twilight like I said earlier, I'll say Belfort's goin' through something more like a "2nd Prime".....like what I hope Shogun goes through...
