If he loses to Rich he might get cut all together.
However I see him winning against Rich and losing to any other top guy at MW.
I don't see how he beats Rich...Rich is too much and too big for him.
Then you're being pretty vapid, no offense. Le could easily put Rich to sleep or win by points from striking. Anyone who gets hit with a spinning hook kick for example is probably going out and seeing as how rich is 0-4 against dangerous southpaws, the odds dont favor him other than that Cung coming off a big loss. Since you missed my original post in the fight announcement thread I will just copy and paste it.
"I'm not seeing Franklin win any other way than to avoid the storm and personally I never like to pick a guy based off of how good he can take shots and avoid the other guys early barrage of subs/takedowns/strikes. He probably cant take Cung down either with Cung's D-1 background, clinching him up might be the trick if he is strong enough from the cut, outstriking Cung will be very hard to do especially when Le is fresh. I would ask Rich to clinch up a lot and keep it boring. People dont seem to be noticing that Rich is starting to wind down, he is slowly becoming less consistent in performance. For example, he got knocked down by Forrest Griffin, think about that for a minute, how many guys has Forrest hurt like that before? Thats right Never....Rich has definitely taken a decent amount of damage in his career, the Lyoto fight, The 2 Anderson fights, the Belfort fight, he got knocked down by Wandy, Chuck was beating him up and wouldve won the round and chuck broke richs arm, he got knocked down by Forrest, Lutter had his arm in a cinched up armabar that I cant believe he didnt tap from and Tanner knocked him down in the rematch. I dont like his chances in the first round with a dynamic southpaw striker, its his achilles heel. I've got Cung Le by Knockout."
