UFC on FUEL TV 6: Rich Franklin weary of Cung Le's kicks heading into Macao showdown on Nov. 10

With less than a month to go before his UFC on FUEL TV 6 headliner against Cung Le, former middleweight champ Rich Franklin talks about what he expects from the San Shou striker when they invade Macao on Nov. 10, 2012.

"What makes Cung Le's kicks so effective is the fact that he doesn't mind throwing them because his wrestling is so good. He may not be much of an offensive wrestler in this fight, but it may be difficult to take him down and he's a good defensive wrestler and that could come into play for him. Because he's able to ward off takedowns and breakaway, that's when his kicks become very effective, when you start hesitating when you're coming in on techniques and stuff like that. He has other aspects of his game that are probably overlooked by the masses."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently green-lit the upcoming UFC on FUEL TV 6: "Franklin vs. Le" event scheduled for the CotaiArena at the Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel in the People's Republic of China, on Nov. 10, 2012.

The UFC "Macao" main card airs LIVE at 9 a.m. ET and will also be re-broadcasted later in the day via tape delay.

Leading the charge for the promotion's landmark event will a middleweight match-up pitting former division kingpin Rich Franklin against ex-Strikeforce 185-pound champion Cung Le, who has the kind of kicks that can break opponent's arms.

And "Ace" is no stranger to broken bones.

Let's get some early predictions on this one, Maniacs. Does Le get a leg up on Franklin? Or gas out and get finished after two rounds of balls-to-the-wall offense?
