I like you. I do. You're a good guy with well rounded skills that has actually beaten some of the best in the world. If the past has taught us anything, you should never bet against Forrest Griffin.
But, I'm sorry, Rich Franklin is going to knock you out tonight.
Rich might struggle against wrestlers or guys who have massively superior striking but you have neither of those. You have good striking but how many people have you knocked out? One? Two? I'm too lazy to look it up.
Rich Franklin punches you like the target is behind your head. His punches continue to drive forward after he has connected with your face. His punches are like a piston that doesn't care that it has already connected, they are seeking a spot six inches past your face. Your face is just in the way.
Franklin by KO in the second.
At the latest.
And honestly, that makes me sad because I really like Forrest and he needs a win. But Franklin is just too much for him and styles make fights. Griffin's technically perfect pitter patter jabs and great leg kicks are not going to be enough to stop a gentle monster like Franklin who will pray to God before the fight, crush your skull with fists like hammers, then help you to your feet, hoping you are okay.
