Im not sure if you remember but Rich was the man!! He was on quite a run...

 

Evan tanner twice

Nate Quarry

Ken Shamrock

Matt Hammill

W. Silva

 

 

HOF!

He was the man. But I do not know about him making it to the HOF. If he can make a great comeback and challenge for the title one more time, he has a chance.

HOF!

Ehh but he's not that important right?

 

Look at the current HOF:

Dan Severn - How can you not?

Charles Lewis - TAPOUT nuff said

Mark Coleman - Godfather of GnP, Pride and UFC HW champ

Ken Shamrock - Cultural Icon, known as "World's most dangerous man"

Randy Couture - 6 time (LHW and HW combined) champion

Royce Gracie - Pioneer, showed skill CAN beat size until size learns skill

Chuck Liddell - Again, cultural icon who transcends the sport.

 

Not sure where I can put Ace here =/

Are you guys insane, who really put MW on the map?? HIs name is Rich Ace Franklin.

 

 

Randy ruled HW from that era.

 

Liddell ruled LHW from that era.

 

Hughes ruled WW from that Era.

 

Pulver or Penn ruled in that era.

 

FRANKLIN ruled MW for that era!

I'm not Dana, but you have to do more than win fights to get into the HOF.

Everyone in there was important to the sport because they did something MORE than win in their division.

Franklin DOMINATED until A. Silva came around...

 

Franklin is and was something special.

But again, was he important to the sport?

If you can convince me that he was more than a good fighter who's popular with the fans I'll agree with you.

Guys like Hughes, Penn, and Chuck are known to those who don't follow the sport.

I can't say the same for Rich.

He is a great role model for aspiring MMArtists, a math teacher turned fighter, a very smart well educated person.

Hmmm not so sure about Rich' date=' but Huges and Penn are locks.[/quote']

 

Well so many thinks that Evan Tanner should be in, and Rich has so much more claim to it....

 

I say Hughes, Penn, Fitch, Forrest, and Franklin are likely.

Imo many casual fans know about him.

Oh jeez.

 

Okay here's what I'm saying.

Though he maybe SHOULD be in there, I doubt it because he hasn't done anything for the sport except win.

Take Chuck for example, he's in one of Carrie Underwood's music videos for christ's sake!

OH MY GOD YOU ARE SO DENSE.

 

Anyways, I meant he's popular with anyone who has watched him because he's humble.

CASUAL FANS in general don't know of him or his accomplishments.

I'm the only fan in my group of friends who really follows the sport.

NONE of them know who Rich is' date=' they just remember Vitor knocking him out.[/quote']

 

Really so your group of friends count as most people??

 

 

Anyway a casual fan now is different then a casual fan back then.

It's just a reference, I'm sure if you ask anyone on here for an example like mine they can come up with a bunch.

 

And Rich was dominant in the era when the casual fan didn't care about names, just seeing knockouts.

Rich did something too' date=' you cant take away his accomplishments beating 3 legends,

Shamrock

Tanner

W.Silva[/quote']

Okay, I'm obviously not gong to convince you since you seem so stubborn on just saying the same thing over and over.

 

Rich is not known for ANYTHING other than winning fights.

Again' date=' he won fights and that's all. He had a belt - so did so many other guys.

To be HOF entails that you did more for the sport than win.

Get it now? =_=[/quote']

 

Oh my god!

 

Whatever, in my book beating 3 legends in the sport, winning the UFC MW belt holding and being able to defend it is good enough by my standards.

Well name other fighters that arent the obvious that deserve it more then franklin.

Can't, but just because you can put someone in doesn't mean you should.

Look at it this way - 50 years down the road (assuming the UFC is still around) what is Franklin's legacy going to be?
