A greener Franklin? Umm, No.
Machida was even greener. It was Machidas 3rd ever fight and in his first year of fighting.
It was Fraklins 14th fight and in his 3rd year od fighting.
That is a very good win.
But apart from that all his other wins have been average. He hasn't looked really impressive in them against any opponent bar Franklin.
