I'd like the UFC to give Franklin a tune up match before he fought any of those guys, just so ring rust isn't the reason he would lose the title... I think the UFC should schedule Swick, A.Silva, Marquardt and Lister in separate fights and go from there depending on the results.. In a perfect world only two would win and you could have a #1 contenders match but of course that wouldn't happen... I don't think Silva should get a shot right away since he just joined the UFC (despite his record in other companies)... I'm not sure who should get the first shot, but I think a healthy Franklin would be a heavy favorite in most of these matches.
