He is a great fighter.

But, afaik, he still trains the way he did 10 years ago, with the same trainers and people.

While everyone else is improving, learning new skills and becoming better fighters, Franklin may still be doing the exact same things he was doing a decade ago.

I won't be surprised if its a technical stand up war and Wanderlei out-techniques Franklin.

That's pretty much what I'm expecting..

Hard work is the only real PED.

Prospects -- Doo Hoo Choi, Ashlee Evans Smith, Mickey Gall, Sage Northcutt, Thomas Almeida, Yair Rodriguez, Lorenz Larkin, Robert Whittaker
