It was truly shocking to see a champ get f****d that bad in such short order. The knees to the body broke ribs, no doubt, the Muay Thai clinch from Silva was devastating, he was thowing Franklin around like a rag doll, and then that knee to the face that broke Franklin's nose....WOW! Franklin looked like he was OUT ON HIS FEET as he staggered sideways just before he went down.
Before the knees to the face, Franklin had taken the knees to the body - did anyone else see when Franklin was thrown against the cage, he looked over to the ref, i thought he was about to verbally tap - it was unbelievable.
Franklin didn;t look right, he hasn't looked right for a while, does anyone know why?
He didn't look confident at all - did he KNOW he was going to get mashed or is there something going on as a result of the Louiseau injuries?
