Should be a fun fight. I can't see Nog riding Franklin like Griffin did.

Should be a good fight. I always enjoy watching two veterans put on a show.

I'll pick Lil Nog, but it's pretty much a toss-up.

Franklin will pick Lil Nog apart all night. Shouldn't be too difficult along as he doesn't let himself get clipped coming in. I see franklin circling with jabs and body shots being the aggressor or at least trying to be. Nog will stand flat footed in the centre and attack swell but the swifter Franklin will take home a comfortable decision me thinks.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

Nog isn't going to take Franklin down and lay on him like Griffin. Franklin will pick nog apart standing. He's quicker and has more power. Although lil nogs boxing is more technical, I see Franklin utilitizing his quickness and footwork to out point him. We are talking about the last (and onlY) most successful guy in the UFC to stand with Silva without getting knocked the **** out in the first few minutes.

War Franklin

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

It's really sad how MMA fighters in their early to mid thirties are on the tail end of their careers, well out of their prime.



In a different career, say being a chef, you're not even a real pro until you're 35 or so.

MMA fighters live beyond most NFL players, so they're lucky in that sense... Not in the literal sense...
