Thats too bad, but maybe for the better as Kampann has incredible talent, I just don't think hes ready for someone like Franklin... hopefully a good alternate can be found...

My thoughts exactly. He's very good but not just ready for Franklin. Okami has been rumoured as a replacement. That would be a much better match-up IMO.
Striking-wise I think Franklin has the edge but I don't think he'll be able to hurt Okami on the feet. Okami is like Machida, too evasive and fast for a guy like Franklin. On the ground it's all Okami.

Feed Rich Quarry again if Okami cant go IMO

Okami/Frankin would be a good one. Personally, Im ready for Swick/Kendall down the road...
