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.
