After a disappointing loss to Anderson Silva last October, Rich Franklin got back to his winning ways by defeating Jason MacDonald at UFC 68 in March of this year. Scheduled to fight Martin Kampmann at UFC 72: Victory in Belfast Ireland, Rich was busy preparing to fight the talented rising star. When Kampmann had to pull out due to injury, Rich waited to hear from the UFC on who his new opponent would be. He received the phone call and will face Yushin Okami on PPV on June 16th. Rich took time out of his busy training schedule to talk exclusively with MMAFighting.com, giving his thoughts on his next trip to the Octagon

I don't think that is relevant to what I was saying. I personally don't care if he wins or loses but a bunch of people here were talking about how they had lost all respect for him and how he was a bitch because he didn't take the fight with Filho when it was never his decision.
