Rich Franklin: I'm looking forward to giving the fans a great fight at UFC 115




"Chuck is a gamer. He is a professional - take Randy for example. He and Randy are friends, but he didn't have a problem fighting Randy and punching him in the head, so he sure won't have a problem punching me in the head.  I'm excited about fighting Chuck, I'm going to give everything I have, and I look forward to giving fans a great fight in Vancouver."

As the dust settles from the UFC 115 main event shake up, the one person involved in this whole ordeal that we haven't really heard from has been Chuck Liddell's new opponent, Rich Franklin. While there is certainly not the same type of animosity between these two fighters, one can easily make the argument that this is a more appealing match up than Liddell vs. Ortiz. So what are your early feelings on this fight? Who's got the advantage in this battle of former UFC champions? Let's hear it, Maniacs.
