I know Frank is real big in San Jose and thats the Strikeforce home do you guys think they put too much stock in the draw of Frank? I feel like they think he is a nation wide draw and thats just not the case. IMO



Well, I don't think his performances are doing him any favors either. He was tooled in 3 of his last 4 fights...and it's hard to draw an audience for someone who calls themself "The Legend" but doesn't deliver.



he was not getting "tooled" in 3 of his last 4 fights.

The Renzo fight Frank was winning until the DQ
The Baroni fight Frank just smoked him.
The Cung fight was potential FOTY, and Frank was giving as much as he was getting until the arm broke.
The Diaz fight he was getting and got smoked.

So to correct you, Frank got "tooled" in 1 of his last 3 fights.



Yeah, I'd say that's a little more accurate.

Go watch the Renzo fight again. Frank was looking for a way out. And if you think Frank was winning that fight, then thankfully you're not a judge.

Yes, Frank smoked Baroni.

Cung was toying with Frank the entire fight until Frank got in some decent shots in the 3rd, but it was far from an even fight.

And obviously Diaz smoked him.

So, to correct you, he was getting smoked in 1 and got smoked in 2 fights...totaling 3.
