I think Ace will take it. He's not an easy guy to take down, and his stand up is much better then lutters. Now the real question is, will travis make weight?

i think rich will take it, i doubt that luttler will be able to take the fight to the ground....but who knows rich might be tentative, and get caught with a right hand like marvin eastman

The ghost that will forevr haunt Lutter, I bet he comes in like at 180 to prove a point, maybe not, but he won't miss weight.....ACE Rd 2 KO

This will not even be close. Franklin will always dominate 99% of the division, with the sole exception of Anderson Silva. Franklin has better hands than 99% of the division too, which is why he will continue to dominate everyone except silva, IMO.

Im suprised that the ufc is even giving lutter another fight i know i would make him prove himself in another organization until he is ready to prove himself in the ufc.

But.......

I think this fight could be more of a war han people expect lutter has good BJJ and not to bad of takedowns and he has some power in his hands with that said Franklin is the better athlete and fighter i beileve he will beat him wherever the fight takes place and if the fight goes into the later rounds lutter's cardio will not be as good as franklins and he will end it. My prediction 3rd round TKO by Franklin.

I think Franklin is in for one of the toughest fights of his career.
