Damn gotta feel for Frankie there. Fighting the perfect fight up until then— Brian BOOM Kelleher (@brianboom135) November 7, 2021
Love these guys and both favorite guests on my show but hate seeing Frankie go out like that. Great fight and to be 40 fighting like that against someone like Vera is amazing. Edgar will always be a legend to me but congrats for getting that finish for Vera. #UFC268— Mike Swick (@officialswick) November 7, 2021
