UFC 126 Preview: Rich Franklin Talks Forrest Griffin

At the 2:35 min mark:
"Both of us like putting on exciting fights and neither one of us really get tired. So I would imagine that from bell to bell this is going to be non-stop."
Plus an interview with Forrest Griffin after the jump:
"If you look at it, it's two guys that are good at everything, not really great at anything. We'll see how it goes on the feet for me. I wouldn't mind if I can take him down, I'd like that. Nobody is a south paw on the ground; it'd be a little simpler. But (Rich Franklin)'s got a great butterfly guard, does a good job at getting up; he's got great submission awareness. He's fought some really good guys if you think about it. Good guys, good wrestlers, he's survived well on the ground. Hopefully he's not as quick as I think he is. Hopefully he's lost a step."
