Cung Le via some form of Mortal Kombat fatality.

Franklin TKO easily, I give Le a 20% chance of winning this.

I went with Le, only because his striking is a touch better. I agree the further this fight goes, the more Ace will have the upper hand though.

Cung Le has better Striking, and I'm pretty sure he has better wrestling as well. What Franklin has is better Cardio, and a mind-boggling advantage in experience. Probably a marginally better ground game too.

Rich can try to tire Le out against the cage, but I don't think that will be as easy as people are making it out to be. He can try to stand with Le, in which case he will have a puncher's chance. Le's defence isn't great and he doesn't react well to being hit. All things considered that scenario still favors Le though.

I think it's close. I'm obviously in the minority though.

Rich seems to be in great shape. I'm guessing Le might have some luck on the feet until he fades and Franklin starts to turn it up. finishing him in a later round.

Rich always comes in to the fight in shape. Mr.Dependable when it comes to that.

Le is so annoying in EA Sports MMA that I can never pick him to win.

Franklin by decision of late round TKO.
