I think Franklin/Cote is gonna be a catchweight, and I know wiki isn't really that reliable but if this turns out to be true 2010 could be awesome...definitely interested in the Vitor/Silva fight! And also can't wait till Shogun gets what is rightfully his, that LHW championship.

So Dana has actually created a division for Rich Franklin now then? this will be is 3rd fight in a row at 195 if it is a catchweight fight. I just dont see the point, its not actually helping Franklin climb any ranks is it, or is Franklin not even looking for a title shot anymore?

I am def going to Montreal to see Shogun/Machida 2 to see the best finally silence the critics and tear into Shogun's ass. Cote/Franklin is exciting too especially considering that Cote will be fighting in front of a French Canadian audience.

I think with the loss to Vitor, Rich is just looking for exciting fights and making money. In his heart he knows the 205 division is too big for him. I have no reason to believe that at 185, 195, or 205 that Franklin won't be Cote. Franklin is just better.

So pumped for this fight. I want to put all the debate to rest. The hand thing explains his crappy performance though. That's a plus, at least now I know he's not a *****.

as of late not really, he has publicly said he has thought a lot about retireing, I think when you get to a certain point its about good fights and having fun and putting on a show for the fans, like wandy, it stops being about obsessing over winning and all.

Franklin isn't going to win the title again imo. He might as well stay out of the fire that is the LHW division and take exciting fights.

A fight between Patrick Côté and Rich Franklin has been mentioned for this card.

"A warm up fight is the most dangerous thing to do. F*ck it give me a big fight right away !!! I’ll be back on top soon'' !! Rich Franklin said than he want to take time off until May, hope he will come back at 185 and fight me here in Montreal !!! UFC 113 May 1st Cote vs. Franklin sounds good to me !!!"
Yeah, that sounds like a sure thing.

Talking

Franklin is gonna be cote, Silva is gonna beat Belfort in a close match, and Machida is gonna beat Shogun again and ill tell u why. Shogun came into that fight his best Machida really underestimated the power of Shogun. Hes gonna look back at the tape and take shogun like his greatest threat. Thats what I think.But u never know shogun might come back even better then he was in there first match and im talkin about more devastating kicks then the first fight. But all the fights sound good and i cant wait to see them
