I think Wandy wins this, tempted to say (T)KO but a decision is the safer bet.

Don't know who wins but I don't think a five round fight favors Wand, then again a 16 month lay off doesn't really bode well for Franklin either.

Just hope for a good fight, both guys are fun as hell to watch, can't wait for it.

After Guida vs. Maynard I am extremely excited about this fight as a main event because this will be the complete opposite This is gonna be good now if I actually knew anything about the other fights on the card besides Russow vs. Werdum I could get motivated to watch it.

I would root for Franklin if he was fighting anyone else beside Wanderlei. My heart is really divided here

Gotta go with my boy Rich. I like wandy, but Rich beat him pretty decisively last time around. I think 5 rounds favors Rich. Conditioning has never been an issue for him.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

I want to believe that Wanderlei will win, it would be heartbreaking if I see him get KO'd in front of his friends, family, and fellow Brazilians.

Looks like we're in the same boat.

I was damn-near having panic attacks before UFC 99.

Rich won last time, so I'm kinda leaning towards Wand... especially with him fighting on home turf.

Should be one helluva scrap.
