It sucks Frankin got dropped like that but hopefully he can recover and put on few more for us.
Nice catch by Le. I want to see him against Belfort. Hell, with his style this might be the guy to face Silva.
Franklin always strikes like that though, throwing awkward combinations and leaving himself open. Most guys can't deal with the volume of strikes so he gets away with it, but better strikers have always tagged him like Wanderlei, Belfort, Anderson, and now Le.
