Rich is too smart to just let Cung Le kick him all day. He'll close the gap and put a hurting on Cung Le. If this makes it past round 2 then Le is in even more danger as Franklins cardio is never in question, but Le's is.

I consider Frank Shamrock a very smart fighter too, so Franklin's main task will certainly be to close that distance asap. His cardio is indeed superior than Lee's by a lot.
Interesting match up.

I`m expecting Franklin to be on Le from the start of the fight, under this pressure Le will eventually fold though I do think he will have his moments in the early going I don`t think he`ll be able to stop Franklin and eventually Franklin will wear him out.

I fully expect Ace to come in and dominate early on and get the finish. Then Cung Le will talk about the injuries he battled going into the fight and how he took the fight because the UFC needed him.

I don't really consider Frank a smart fighter, I considered him a good to great fighter. Franklin really appears to adapt to his opponent on the fly rather than have a set game plan.

Franklin does need to be on Le from the beginning because if Le has proven one thing, he doesn't take a minute or two to figure out his range, expect those first kicks he throws to land.

Picking Cung Le.

It'll be a technical stand up war & Cung Le is the better technical striker[?].
