After a 16-month layoff, Rich Franklin is ready to step back into the Octagon and face the “tornado”known as Wanderlei Silva. Will “Ace” be able to make it 2-0 against Silva at UFC® 147?
The best way to describe Wanderlei’s fighting style: It would be like fighting a tornado. As long as you stay away from the tornado, your safe, but if you get too close to the tornado, it does damage. When you come in, he pulls the trigger. And when he pulls the trigger, things fly. He’s throwing multi-punches with his hands, following things up with his knees and he’s just dangerous. The best way for me to finish this fight is to not get lazy and get caught up in his game and get caught with something that would otherwise put me on the ground. – transcribed by MMAmania.com.
