Anderson Silva: Rich Franklin toughest UFC fight to date

Anderson Silva

Props: Baltimore Sun

Quoteworthy:

"His game is what he felt the toughest to train for. His striking game was probably the most complex in the UFC."

UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva reveals that Rich Franklin was his toughest test to date inside the Octagon in a recent interview. "The Spider" toppled ace in the span of 12 months in rather convincing fashion both times. Meanwhile, he appeared to have more trouble against Travis Lutter and Dan Henderson before eventually winning those fights ... in convincing fashion.
