Anton Tabuena, Bloody Elbow
Full fight highlights of the UFC on Fuel main event between Rich Franklin and Cung Le.
The main event of UFC on Fuel 6 pitted two former champions against each other, as ex-UFC middleweight champ Rich Franklin took on former Strikeforce title holder Cung Le in a five-round affair. Le came into this fight as the underdog, and with questionable cardio the general consensus was that it was unlikely for him to win a five-round fight. He fixed that problem by assuring there wouldn't even be a 2nd round. You can see the video recap, including the dramatic finish right here:
Here's Brent Brookhouse's commentary on the fight:
Rich Franklin vs. Cung Le - Round 1 - A really slow start to the fight, complete feeling out process. OH MY! Huge right hand from Le and Franklin is down and completely out. That was straight up violent. Cung Le wins by KO (punch), round 1.
