I agree he would've had a better chance if he didn't play games however his best plan would've been taking him down and fighting on the ground.
Not playing to your strengths is a bad gameplan.
I find it hard to beleive that in all that sparring with Cung that Frank and Cung never tested ground game.
But maybe you're right, and I have no proof to dispute your point so I'll concede to it.
I still think that Franks approach to the stand up game in not being aggressive was his fatal flaw.
But who knows. I'd like to see the rematch.
