Chicago’s MMA reporter Matt Lo Cascio talks to UFC fighter Rich Franklin to preview his upcoming bout with Wanderlei Silva at UFC 99 in Germany.

Franklin was just outside of Chicago, in Kankakee, making an appearance at Fire Extreme Fighting. The event was promoted by his friend, veteran heavyweight and Kankakee native Kerry Schall.  Franklin talks about going toe to toe with “The Axe Murderer,” his future in the UFC’s light heavyweight division, and possibly rematching Lyoto Machida, who happens to be the new UFC light heavyweight champion.

    It seems no one ever wants to fight Machida just to fight him. I would love someone to come out and say ‘Belt or no belt, I want to fight that guy’. You can’t really blame them though….
