    Man Franklin breaks something everytime he fights nowadays. The fight when for 2 minutes and both fighters get injured, crazy.

    God hates me, never keep my banger on safety
    My mother raised me alone, you can't break me
    Like my hearts pumpin the blood of Royce Gracie!

    It kinda bothers me that Franklin lost to Le. I have always been a big Le fan, but I thought he looked awful leading up until to the KO. It shows how good Le is that he found a very silly hole on Franklin's part and took it, but still. He looked like a stiff robot out there. Reminded me of a post-Gonzaga KO Cro Cop to be honest. He was moving slow and sluggish as well. His kicks reminded me of a day 3 Tae Kwon Do student. I don't think Le takes the rematch. I also wish this fight happened when Le was ruling Strikeforce. They were both in better places in their career.

    But, it really doesn't matter does it? Franklin lost.

    Yeah^. Franklin fought alot better in the Wandy fight, he gave Wandy very few chances to counter over 25 minutes...but here, in this fight, he leaves a big opening in the first 2 minutes of the fight. Franklin was coming in so wide with that hook after he threw the leg kick...that's just what happens at this level. He usually doesn't make mistakes like that.

    I hope this isn't too big, because it's awesome.
