Look at the guys Tito defended his title against. None of them where that good until Couture showed up and that was years later.
Do you think Frank was scared of Tanner? Yuki Kondo? Patrick Cote? Wanderlei before anyone was really scared of him? He fought Elvis Sinosic and beat him before he fought Tito. What was Frank scared of?
Cung Le broke Frank's arm stop trolling or at least get better at it.
