It's time for our main event, as former middleweight champions Cung Le (8-2) and Rich Franklin (29-8) battle. Le was a Strikeforce champion, while Franklin held the UFC title. The referee will be Marc Goddard for this scheduled five-round affair.
Round 1: A nice handshake by the two and we are off. Right away, Le looking for a big kick, working the inside leg kick. Franklin sticks and moves, landing a right, and another. A third quick right jab lands by Franklin, as Le goes back to his kicks. Left-right combo lands by Franklin. Out of nowhere, Le lands a huge right that drops Franklin out cold. This one is over, via one-punch knockout. Le celebrates with a cart-wheel and is screaming in excitement, easily his biggest career victory over the former UFC champion.
