Chuck Liddell has been the face of the ufc for sometime. Even casual fans knew of him or at least heard the name. Last Saturday night showed his age caught up to him. When the third bout with Ortiz was canceled I was not surprised. Chuck can beat Tito any day of the week. Even when Chuck is 50, he’ll still beat Ortiz.
Enter Rich Franklin. Franklin moved up to 205 lbs a little bit ago and think he fits light heavyweight now that he is older. I actually picked Liddell to knock Franklin out at first. Then I though of Chuck’s past bouts and changed my mind. Franklin by decision.
I was wrong on both. Rich Franklin knocks out Chuck Liddell? Wow. In the first round too. Rich should be up there in the rankings to challenge for the belt. The iceman I believe is finished… At least in the ufc.
