    Fan of Rich so i didn't list any fights where he was finished or badly beaten sorry.

    Sorry if i left any other good fights out, didn't really watch Rich till he fought Ken.

    His fights with Wandy, Hendo and Quarry are awesome. The way he layed Nate out, damn.

    Quarry for me, that knockout was awesome. Great for his HL reel. The Wand and Hendo fights were great too.

    His performance vs. The Crow was probably his finest, but my favorite was the Chuck fight.

    Ya that Chuck fight was something else, broke his hand and still was able to finish him off.

    Picked the Hendo fight just because it was a clear "who is the best #2 MW in the world" fight even though it was at 195 I believe. Was a great fight.

    It was actually his arm. He broke his hand(s) in Loiseau fight, yet still managed to dominate him. Rich is definitely one of the toughest fighters in the sport.

    Anderson/Franklin is my favorite Rich Franklin fight, so 'other' I guess.

    That actually made me realize that the UFC should've made Franklin and Sonnen fight. Shame on them.

    Against Chuck, he got his arm broke yet still knocked him out.

    His performance against Hamill is often forgotten imo. Was a great display of striking from Rich. And was tough as nails losing that huge chunk of skin.

    Close call between Wand I, Loiseau, and Chuck. Went with Chuck for overcoming the badly broken arm and stopping the fight.

    Rich Franklin/Tanner 2 was one of the best fights in UFC history.
