Rich Franklin was supposed to destroy Cung Le at UFC on FUEL TV 6. From the second this bout was announced to the final Twitter poll that Kevin Iole took five minutes before the match began, Franklin was universally regarded as the likely winner.
There is a reason fights aren’t won or lost on paper.
Not only did Le versus Franklin turn out completely opposite of the way people predicted it would results-wise, it was also a complete 180 style-wise compared to what everyone foresaw. Le came out slowly; Franklin came out carelessly. Le showed restraint; Franklin was overenthusiastic. Le still has at least one fight ahead of him; Franklin may be done. The UFC Macao main event pretty much turned every preconceived notion anyone had coming in on its ear.
