    This is strange, I remember him saying he really underestimated Anderson Silva. Will watch nonetheless, interesting video.

    Pure class for sure, and one of the smartest, best-spoken people ever to fight at a high level in the UFC.

    Also a super devout Christian, but you never hear him blab about it. He just quietly goes out and shows his faith through his actions. Even as a flint-hearted atheist, I can get behind a guy like that.

    I wasn't being sarcastic. It's worth the watch.

    He is the man, and as great as Silva's run has been, and as amazing as Silva has been to watch, part of me wonder what would have happened if Silva had never come to the UFC and what Franklin would have done then.

    I really enjoyed the speech from Rich; I think he has a bright future in public speaking.
