Wow. Just as I was thinking that Cung shouldn't even be in the cage he looked so sluggish and unmotivated, he landed that huge right hand. I honestly don't even think Cung expected to win that one. Monster of a knockout, though.

Not a fan of Le but that was great to see. I have friends who are huge fans of Le and I was getting bored with them being so quiet since Le hasn't done anything relevant prior to this KO. Nice win. This will build up fan noise (ie "OMG! Cung is back!"). And it's only a matter of time before they come crashing down to Earth again. I think we might see Le vs Leben next.

I don't think Cung looked that old. He actually looks fairly quick / sharp for his age.

It was perfect but it was a lot more than what Danzig showed. He really disappointed -- but then again, when don't TUF winners?

It was great timing, yes. But Franklin didn't so much walk into it as he served his head on a platter for Le.

He might as well had slipped his left hand into his trunks to scratch his nuts when he tried to throw that right hook before being caught.

Compare it to how Le keeps his left up whilst throwing the finishing right hook.

So it was nothing to do with the under committed, poorly timed and badly executed low kick that started the disastrous chain of events then?

The thing with Franklin was that he always lowered his left hand whenever he threw a leg kick

mmGaY standup in one hilarious nutshell - fat old short plodder scores a spectacular wide loopy ass one punch ktfo because his opponent girly-flails then drops his left to ****-level whilst reaching for the stars with his glass chin. Joke sport.

Thanks for that insightful contribution to this thread.

By the way glass legs do exist........usually on boxers.

Okay, it was from the kick that Franklin put his hands down (which we all know, you're not suppose to do), so what difference does it make?

Bottom line, his hands were suppose to be up -- it's not like he was suspicious of a takedown.
