I think Franklin has a chance of pulling another *Liddell KO* in this fight.
And i'm hoping he does.

Not likely. Lil Nog is a left handed Brazilian

It's just that Rich has said before that southpaw Brazilians are his nemesis. Like Silva and Machida.

Lil Nog has a very different style than both Silva and Machida. Lil Nog has more of a traditional boxing style which should play perfect into Rich.

I kinda feel bad for Lil Nog. He's having a rough run of competition as of lately. Even if he manages a W over Franklin it won't be easy.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

So basically, that means there is really only Davis or Bonnar left to fight for Machida at the Rio card

It'll be a great fight, regardless of where they are in their careers, Franklin more often than not puts on a great show every time and Nog finally gets his long awaited striker to fight. This and Belfort/Sexyama will be off the hook.

Shaping up to be a solid card.

Franklin is fighting in the LHW division because in the MW division there is nothing left for him , and LIL Nog well okay if he isnt past it he just was never that good because in my book Brillz beat him he should be 0-3 and now could 0-3 anyway and that to me is not exactly a fighter in their peak , especially when you consider non of the guys he has just faced were elite fighters they are prospects or middle of the road guys.

PS i hate this non sense about wrestlers literally if he cant compete with a style or may lose most of the time to them he isnt going anywhere so he should be cut, Hardy is another example.

Velasquez will be back
