Prime Rich didnt have the technical ability to fight against today’s guys. Yes Silva’s Muay Thai is far greater than most mma fighters ever. That doesn’t change the fact that Franklin was completely clueless on how to defend the clinch. Its not like Silva just did that to everyone and no one could defend it. Now if prime rich with his ability, toughness, and athleticism trained at a top mma gym today then yeah of course he’d be able to do well. That wasn’t the question though.
