2 Million on Franklin. Franklin is way too smart and technical to fall into Cung Le's game of flashy kicks. Franklin also fought Wandy recently, and although MMA math is rarely useful, I think Wandy's performance vs. Le and Franklin actually hiughlights why Franklin is going to take Le to a UD.
Round 1 - Referee Marc Goddard in the cage for the night's main event. Touch of gloves to start. Le takes the center as Franklin fakes a few attacks and remains at distance. Franklin kicks the leg and stays away from Le's counter. Le landing with his right early, and he comes up just short on a turning kick to the head. Franklin's landing to the legs early, and he mixed in a stiff combination of punches. Le just a touch behind on his counters in a patient start. That changes in a moment as a counter right lands on the button after a Franklin low kick. No follow needed as Franklin is cold. Le scales the cage in celebration in an incredible moment for the former Strikeforce champ. Cung Le def. Rich Franklin via knockout (punch) - Round 1, 2:17.
