    Whats so fixed about it ? Shamrock had a leglock but it was early in the fight and Franklin was able to use his BJJ skills to get out. Was it when Shamrock threw a highkick and fell down ? It happens Franklin is a true young MMA fighter and beat a limited older fighter in a good scrap.

    Looks right as Shamrock was going to do something, Franklin threw some punches. Thats why Shamrocks legs look all weird. Or his feet persay.

    That's not how the fight ended though. Must have been earlier in the fight. The fight ended with Shamrock slipping throwing a head kick after he nearly had it won with a leglock. After he slips franklin nails him with a ton of punches. The actual ending looks totally legit.

    It sure did look funny. If that was what ended the fight
    , it didn't look like much contact

    Wtf? are you guys a bunch of rookies? Shamrock was purposely dropping down to secure an ankle lock, which if you watch the fight he did secure at that moment, however Franklin was able to get out of it. It is an old sucker move from way back. Shamrock just melts and then would slap on that ankle lock while his opponent is wondering what is going on.
