Frankie's main appeal is that Maynard nearly KOed him. It showed Frankie's heart and determination to win and that's what's so likeable about the guy. If not for those fights, I'd probably hate him and think he's boring, but when watching him I never really think it, I just think of the never say die warrior and hope he wins almost ever fight he's in. I'm a big Aldo fan, and know Aldo is very entertaining, but somehow want Edgar to win, and I usually side with the more exciting.
I'm probably the best at keeping threads on topic of all time.
