Part 2 - Frankie talks about his upcoming UFC title defense and rematch against BJ Penn at UFC 118 in Bostson, MA on August 28. He is an assistant coach with wrestling program at Rutgers University. He mostly just trains with the wrestlers and feels that since he is still competing in mma and working toward a goal it can help motivate some of the wrestlers on the team. Frankie feels that takedowns are worth being scored because you are doing something to your opponent that he doesn't want you to do.
