I haven't watched this video yet but I think I remember that frank weighed in for that fight fully clothed and with rolls of Quarters in his pockets.
I used to dream of a Frank vs Sakuraba fight. 13-14 years ago that would have been big.
The first time I saw Frank fight was the time he picked up the russian guy and dumped him on his next. I had never seen something so explosive, an violent before in my whole life, and I had been brought up on a diet of Van Damme movies from the age of 12.
I remember thinking he was the most dangerous man alive, wayyyy more dangerous then his big brother. Its such a shame things were such a mess back then, otherwise we would have had an amazing tito/frank rivalry for years, and frank would have easily established himself as a ufc legend, and be sitting in the hall of fame.
