Let’s just throw it out there and see how it sounds:

Yushin Okami defeats Rich Franklin at UFC 72 to earn the right to fight for the UFC Middleweight Championship.

man that article has a pretty heavy franklin bias if you ask me... no surprise that it's on the ufc's official website. I agree with some of what he's saying, but I personally think there is no real underdog in this fight. I'll put my money on okami, but when a fight is this close it usually just comes down to who brings their A game on that night.

Well personally I think it should be bias, because Franklin is the better fighter. Boy will I look like an ass if he loses...heh

wow, this article disrespects Okami and Serra quite a bit. At the end the writer dismisses Serra's win as a fluke, saying that it could always happen with ookami/franklin. Also Okami hits hard as a mofo and they failed to even acknowldge that. Okami also has more international experience than franklin.

In my opinion, Franklin will win this fight. I just can't see any other outcome, I don't know what method but my guess is by tko. Just because he lost his belt,does'nt mean he is'nt an absolute monster at 185. (he's too powerful for okami)

Them saying he hasn't been to the big show when he has fought at Busihdo is pretty retarded considering there crowd attendance. I don't think him fighting as the main card will affect him at all (not like it's for the title). I see Franklin winning by decision although it could go either way and I'm pretty stoked about the fight.

I vote Okami TKO via GnP.
