Is it just me or did Franklin look faster than ever last night?I always considered him a good striker but more of an accurate striker than a speedy one.To me he looked faster last night than when he was MW champ.

He looked real good last night. He actually looked leaner than he did at 185. Maybe he dropped some muscle mass, and improved his quickness. He still looked fresh in the 5th round as well. Now, he was facing Wandy, who isn't the most illusive fighter in the UFC.

I thought he looked good, took some good shots from Wandy and they didn't phase him much, until the few in the second.

Or maybe it was I just hadn't seen Rich fight in awhile, can't remember who he last fought before Wandy.

Looked good maybe a little quicker but i think the biggest improvement was his footwork for sure!

He fought the other slow, white guy with a horrible haircut.......Forrest (if you still couldn't figure it out)

He fought Forrest and lost convincingly. He had to get a dragon tattoo for the loss.

A fight he looked horrible in. The time off seemed to actually help him.

I can't even remember the Forrest/Franklin fight or maybe I do, did Griffin use his wrestling more in that fight, that's about all I can remember from it.

I think it was on the same card when Andy went karate kid on Vitor
