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..
Really? I was thinking that both fighters are pretty much the same as the first fight so I expect it to be the same result. I don't see Wandy as hugely changed from what he used to be. He loses more than in the beast pride days but that is because he is fighting a higher level of competition most of the time.
