Franklin v Liddell could possibly be, Coleman Couture was a joke though.Dana's been booking a lot of these "legend vs. legend" matches recently as headlining bouts. Couture/Coleman, Gracie/Hughes, Ortiz/Liddell, now Franklin/Liddell.
I appreciate Dana's loyalty to veteran former champs, and name recognition does sell PPV's, but there has to be a point where the declining skills of former greats has to be acknowledged; make the fight, but don't try to pawn it off as a legitimate main event bout, because it's not.
I'd say it's a shame that it's happening now. I say Franklin takes this one purely because he is nearer to his prime than Chuck is, although I'd love to see a Chuck KO.You know, this has been a dream fight of mine for a very long time.
Weird that it's happening now..
i don't understand why people keep saying this even though chuck hasn't ko'd someone since 2006 and rich doesn't get knocked out on a regular basis and not to mention the Tko's where from belfort who was on a tear, silva when he actually fought and by lyoto machida soccer kicking and punching him in the head.I wouldn't be surprised if he could get the KO.
i don't think he even needs to do that much to Ko chuckSo...it seems that poster in the TUF Gym was real after all!
I think this fight has more potential than Chuck-Tito. That one, would have been interesting because of the history between Chuck and Tito, but i am convinced this one will be better.
I will be curious on how Liddell will be affected by the long lay-off. After all, he hasn't fought in over a year.
I can see Franklin controlling the fight, without being the agressor. I think Liddell will try to land some big strikes, but probably he will tire late in the second or in the third.
If Franklin is patient and if he can put togheter some quick combinations, he will take this one. I can even see him getting the TKO in the 3rd.
it's best not to ask and just sit back and pay attention to peoples posts as thats the best way to get info without being flamedI'm kinda new to UFC (couple of months now), is Franklin any good? What are his strengths and weaknesses? Never heard of the guy tbh.. :confused05:
I can live with flamers, lawls.. Feeling sorry for them is pretty fun :sarcastic12:it's best not to ask and just sit back and pay attention to peoples posts as thats the best way to get info without being flamed
