I am pumped for this week.
Reading message board and internet talk, there is not a lot of buzz about this PPV coming up. I think it is just the opposite. First I am a huge Rich Franklin fan, and think that this is a great fight for him against Yushin Okami. I see it going all 3 rounds and to the judges score card, Okami will bring his A game on Saturday.
On the card also will be Forrest Griffin vs Hector Ramirez, which will be another great fight. Forrest is also one of my favorite fighters and is trying to rebound after his last fight in the Octagon got TKO’ed in the first round by Keith Jardine. Hector will also be trying to rebound after his loss in the Ocatagon at UFC 65. Forrest is a very entertaining fighter and a great character.
If you want to see a great fight, some say one of the best fights in UFC history check out the fight from The Ultimate Fighter 1. Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar absolutely destroyed one another in that fight. It is a jaw dropping fight to watch.
