whats up with Franklin

anyone heard what his plans are. is he gonna stick it out in the middle weight or is he gonna try to go back to light heavy?
he still is one of my favorite fighters but i think he needs to take some time away from Silva.

He's fighting Travis Lutter on the Main Card at UFC 83.

Silva's his kryptonite. He's still top 3 MW in the world. Andersons just on another level.

Silva might be his kryptonite, but I think Lutter put up a better showing against Silva than Franklin did either time.

I think Lutter will beat Rich, then after Anderson fights Okami, Lutter will get his rematch, he wasn't at 100% at that fight, he made himself sick sitting in a sauna for hours trying to make the weight. Last I talked to him he said he was gonna be much more prepared if he gets the rematch.

He knew the fight was coming and he did not make weight. How the hell do you not kick yourself into gear enough for a title fight?
