10.22.2007 - 10:34:00 AM - Rich Franklin retirement talk premature.

Dann Stupp, The junkie of MMAJunkie.com also has a column at the Dayton Daily News squashing the post UFC 77 rumors that Rich Franklin is headed for a retirement.

"Rich still has a lot left to accomplish in this sport," said J.T. Stewart, Franklin's publicity manager. "It's too early for him to even consider retirement at this point."

Likewise, UFC President Dana White - the fight executive who strategically blueprinted Franklin's rise to the top - says he'll be there no matter how far Franklin may fall.

"Rich Franklin will always be a part of this organization," White said. "He's one of the team players here in the UFC, and he's going to be here forever."

I would personally hope that Rich doesn't retire. He's always been one of my favorite fighters and he truly is a great fighter. Anderson Silva is just that much better. There isn't anyone in the middleweight division that I see beating Rich Franklin let alone Anderson Silva. I think we'll see Rich take a little break from MMA and see how the middleweight division unfolds over the next few months.

10.17.2007 - 10:13:00 AM - Brandon Vera Interview

Gary Herman of 15rounds.com has an interview with Brandon Vera available which talks about his issues with his management and what he expects out of the Tim Sylvia fight this coming Saturday at UFC 77. Brandon Vera didn't dodge any questions when it comes to the issues that have kept him out of the octagon for almost a year. "The Truth" last fought Frank Mir at UFC 65 this past November. Here's a little piece of what he had to say.

My ex-manager Mark Dionne was untruthful about some stuff with the UFC. He did not tell me everything the UFC saying. It made me not like the UFC for a time. It made me think the UFC did not care what I was doing. I felt disrespected, but none of what Dionne said was true. I ended up getting rid of (Dionne). I found out a lot of stuff Dionne did during arbitration. I got to tell him exactly how I felt without putting my hands on him and that was kind of cool. I felt relieved.

I'm really interested in seeing this fight. Will we see the same Brandon Vera? He hasn't been in the octagon in almost a year. He has said that he has been training the whole time but there's a big difference between training and fighting. He's been training with the current Light Heavyweight Champion Rampage Jackson at big bear with Juanito Ibarra. He is also a student of Lloyd Irvin who is one of the best Jiu Jitsu instructors in the country. Tim Sylvia is coming off a big loss to Randy Couture at UFC 68. He recently had back surgery and claims that he is 100% and ready to knock Brandon Vera out. It'll be interesting to see who shows up at these fights. The aggressive, intimidating Tim Sylvia, or the one that comes out to win but a decision. It'll also be interesting to see how Vera deals with the layoff, and we'll get to see if Vera is the real deal against a former champ in Tim Sylvia.
