UFC Quick Quote: Rich Franklin vs. Travis Lutter fight is rather straightforward

"I'm a guy that's going to go out there and I'm going to fight to my strengths. I'm going to go out there and I'm going to try to take Rich down, and I'm going to beat him up. That's what I do. If I can't take him down than it's going to be a long day for me. If he can't stop me from taking him down, it's a long day for him."

-- Travis Lutter tells how he expects his 185-pound showdown with Rich Franklin this weekend at UFC 83: "Serra vs. St. Pierre" to unfold inside the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec. Lutter has not competed since losing to UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva via submission at UFC 67: "All or Nothing" back in February 2007 -- a fight for which he did not make weight. This time around he intends to cut just 10 pounds (he tried to cut more than 20 against Silva) prior to tipping the scale to avoid another disaster.
