Default UFC 88: Rich Franklin vs Matt Hamill - ***VIDEO***

http://www.sports-tube.com/watch/148...vs-Matt-Hamill

Light heavyweights: Rich Franklin (26-3) def. Matt Hamill (6-2)

How: Ref stoppage at 0:39 of Round 3

Key moment:
Franklinís ability to continually land kicks to the leg and body and keep Hamill from taking him down most of the way spelled the difference. The low kicks slowed Hamillís movement and left him open for body kicks. In the third round, Hamill went down from a hard body kick and Franklin finished him with punches on the ground. Franklin has a nasty cut on the side of his right eye but Hamill wasnít able to connect on it after early in the second round.

Analysis: Former middleweight champ Franklin, in his first light heavyweight fight in more than three years at light heavyweight, executed a good game plan on one of the stronger man in the division. But in moving up in weight, the question becomes how he can fare with the high-caliber strikers at the top of this division. What he showed is strong takedown defense and a good battle plan against someone is primarily a wrestler, something that was his strength as a middleweight. Ė Dave Meltzer (Yahoo.com)
