As I said before...
I have to disagree. Franklin isn't stupid, he knows how to strategize for a fight. If Franklin does not come out swinging on Lister (Who, as everyone forgets to mention, looked like crap while standing) then yes, he may get in trouble. It looks like if Lister goes to the ground with just about anyone he is bound to create a new submission and name it after the fighter he taps out with it. Franklin knows this, and is getting his gloves ready for their short, but sweet introduction to the "Boogeyman"'s face.
That is, if he doesn't want me to throw a brick at my TV.
I don't want to take anything away from Lister's impressive performance, but Franklin is going to keep it standing as long as he wants. As far as Anderson Silva goes, I think he has a good shot at giving Franklin a run for his money, but my pick for the next xhamp is Mike Swick in a year or 2.
