Franklin Prepared For Anything Against Silva At UFC 99

From Telegraph.co.uk:

“Wanderlei is very dangerous. You can’t discount all that he did in Pride. Those knees and his aggression are legendary in this sport and that’s what I am going in against. You saw what he did to Keith Jardine in, what was it, 36 seconds? He can do that in a heartbeat if I let him. I don’t expect him to go for any takedowns, but I learned the hard way not to underestimate anybody in any area. I really thought that, before I fought Anderson Silva, that because I was bigger I would be stronger and in my sweet spot in the clinch. I made an assumption and what happened, happened. I won’t be making those assumptions again.”
