fight is here...
that fight made me physically ill.
Why? Interesting reaction.
My buddy's girlfriend felt that way too, but that was after seeing Rich's nose after the fight.
fucking god what a beating
rich was squirming around worse than bj was against hughes
i'm a little emo bitch and genuinely felt bad for him
I only feel bad for Franklin becasue he never got the big payday he should have from the UFC.
But thats what happens when somebody with a real Muay Thai background and real clinch puts it to work
That was absolutely insane. I've seen tons of muay thai fights and I have never seen anyone control someone so easily and perfectly from the clinch like that.
how much do you think he worked on it, probably not that much, Franklin probably thought he would be pushing the fight and a normal UFC clinch is just gaggle of weak knees and take down trys
He got his fingers locked tight and got two great knees in immediately, stole Franklin's energy and was able to maintain dominance that way. The rest of the knees after the 1st couple were icing on the cake. The knee was over the top.
i honestly wouldn't be surprised to find out that rich was legitimately injured by one of the first few knees. (before the head hits)
cheers, anyone have the full event? not up on usenet yet..
Thanks! Never thought Rich was that great of a fighter. Not a fan of his either. Loved seeing him get dominated like that!
I went to watch some local kickboxing and it was a guy from where i live versus a thai fighter from thailand, one knee to the rib and he was down for the count, next fight he was in he actually did the same thing that happened to him, and won by TKO from it.
That clinch was insanely strong, I'm in shock after that fight.
The last knee that smashed his nose made my toes curl every time they showed it.
GREAT Fight. Finally a fighter that knows how to clinch and knee properly.
