Rich Franklin: I’m Fighting Yushin Okami at UFC 72
"With Martin Kampmann (15-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) off the UFC 72 card because of a knee injury, former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin (21-2 MMA, 8-1 UFC) has confirmed that he’ll instead fight Yushin Okami (20-3 MMA, 4-0 UFC) in the main-event bout." Woot i will love this, i'm gonna say Okami will win by decision. It will be close. I don't want him to win but i don't think Rich will be able to do much if he gets taken down. Although he could do a A. Silva move and kick him in the face from his back and get DQ'd Jk, it will be an exciting fight, and i want Rich to win but it will be hard. Linky
