I have heard a lot of excuses why Franklin lost that fight in the past 48 hrs! His hand wasn't completely healed, he had ring rust, he had very low confidence, he was getting over the flu or staph infection, he was demorilized because 16 professional fighters plus former world champion Randy Couture made fun of him because of his advice to drop to one knee at the start of a fight! Please, enough is enough! I don't want to look like a serious ass here but the fact is Rich lost because he fought a man who was superior that night. It happens!
