Could Manuwa drop down to a catchweight? Don't know too much about this dude but I have seen a few of fights and have been very impressed.

I still need to see the highlights of the Franklin/Le fight.

I thought Le was kind of holding back as well and I guessed maybe to save energy, but I think that was a strategy. He is a feared kicker and few believe he would try to box with Rich.

Le suggested at the end that was a lucky punch just to be to be humble, IMO. We can clearly see he had his eyes open and perfectly locked on Franklin's face during the whole time during that fatal exchange. The move of an expert.

Wandy was getting his ass kicked by Le for a while that wasn't a one sided fight.

I don't really know what is surprising about this result Le is the better striker and it was likely going to be on the feet for the most part.

Hardly, Franklin always fights with his chin in the air and his hands low. He doesn't move his head, he's not a very good striker.

I think people are forgetting that Cung basically came out of retirement for the Silva fight and was using Wandy as a heavy bag for two rounds before he gassed.

I haven't forgotten how the fight went. Le obviously took the aforementioned two rounds, but I'd not call his final few seconds going at it with Wanderlei anything other than destruction. And while I agree that Le gassed terribly, I'd like to give Silva a shred of credit for bringing a fairly ferocious pace.

T'was just a bit of MMA math for shits and giggles, lads. Nothing more.

legacy_gt has a little shameless behaviour in the past
a young cung

with no acting would have ruled his division. funny how the cung haters have said that cote and franklin were going to eat him for dinner. wandy was staggered by cung and getting schooled before cung gassed and got KO.

cung is an elite athlete. he's just older now and not as consistent because of his show biz.
