"I was interviewed by German media (Wednesday), and they asked me a question about the sport being dangerous," Franklin said. "It’s amazing to me, the idea of danger that people have in their head. I was picked up at the airport on Saturday morning and when we got on the Autobahn, we were doing about 240 to 250 kilometers an hour to get to the hotel. I didn’t mind. The driver asked me if I wanted him to slow down and I said, ‘You can speed up if you want.’ But to do something like that in the United States is completely absurd. "Going that fast, to think about the danger you’re imposing upon yourself and other drivers, but that’s the way things operate here. Now, their highways are safe. I didn’t feel unsafe doing that speed. All the other drivers know what’s going on. They’re all educated about how to drive at that speed. But if you tried to do something like that in the U.S., it would be very dangerous."

"He had invited me to train at his gym in Las Vegas before this fight had been scheduled. I have enormous respect for Wanderlei Silva... I’m always in Vegas and intend to train at his academy after this fight. We’re great fighters but UFC wanted to make this fight."

Rich Franklin suggests to Graciemag that he plans to train with Wanderlei after their UFC 99 headlining bout.
