I'm really looking forward to this fight. Should be a good one. Okami definitely has a good shot, but when Franklin's on he looks good. Toss up.

It really could go either way. While Franklin regained some of his confidence at UFC 68, he was clearly not as good as before and if he shows up at UFC 72 like he did at UFC 64 or 68 expect him to lose. Okami is clearly on a roll now and has yet to lose in the UFC, if that's not enough, he also has the style to beat Franklin while negating the bulk of Franklin's attack. Overall, if Franklin turns up like he did against Evan Tanner or David L he'll win but if he turns up with his B game like at UFC 64 or 68 he'll lose. Okami is not to be underestimated and a victory won't be as much of an upset as many would believe, especially with Franklin's hand/foot injuries and lack of confidence lately.

Threw everything I had on Rich. I see this one as an impressive W to put him back in title contention. It's not an easy fight, but it will be fun to watch and I see him pulling out with the finish.

Wouldn't surprise me to see Okami beat Franklin, but don't see it happening. Just a upset waiting to happen.

550 on Okami, I think he will get this one.

And i think the winner of this fight will have next Title shot aswell.

4k on Okami, but only because of the odds. I have this one as a damn near coin flip with a slight edge to Ace.
