“… incredible, because he is the last champion before Anderson. He is a great fighter, a complete fighter and it is a good first fight for me in this division…. I didn’t see this fight [with Henderson] but I have seen two or three of his fights. He is complete - good ground, good stand-up, good takedowns, and I think he is a very good fight for me. I am bringing in several sparring partners from Brazil that are also complete fighters, I will be ready for him.”

A losing streak is a losing streak, and Franklin and Wand are on one regardless if it was close or a brutal KO (i thought hendo won unanimously but to each his own) Wand proabably needs it more I get what you're saying but I dont see the point of the original quoting of chitownfinest15.

What if Franklin got hit by Jackson? Do you think he'd make it to the end of the fight? You can't equate the two fights. A better comparison would be Franklin and Silva's two recent fights with Henderson, and Silva was competitive in that before being brutally killed.

This fight is going to be great. (Is this the main event?) UFC 99 is going to be great.

Silva vs. Franklin
Hardy vs. Davis
Swick vs. Saunders
Velasquez vs. Herring
Uno vs. Fisher
