I think he is a very good fighter but to be honest im unimpressed with his athleticism. He looks flat footed when he is on his feet. Rich will be way too much for him. This kid is very good on the ground though, does anyone know if he does grappling competitions?
I can't stand when people say stuff like "if leben threw an uppercut or a knee the fight would have been much different"!
But he didn't, did he? That's the same as saying...
If tito had just been able to take chuck down he would griund and pound him into submission.
If Rich Franklin had punched Anderson Silva on the chin the fight would have been much different.
If Matt Hughes was able to take down GSP the fight would have been a lot different.
If Ken Shamrock was able to get Tito in a leg lock the fight would have been a lot different.
Do you now realize how stupid you sound?
As for MacDonald fighting Franklin, I agree with a lot of you that he should have fought someone before Franklin.
