    I think Frank was talented, tough and charismatic but over-rated as a fighter, he was exposed against fighters like Lober, Renzo, but he often rose to the occasion in other fights. He's a Bas Rutten type figure, his achievements don't actually measure up to his reputation.

    Loved that OG fight and the buildup. When Shamrock tells Phil he's gonna sleep. Before fighters started having catfights on twitter.

    Leben’s cardiac condition is fucked and he wouldn’t be cleared by any authority to set foot in the cage due to the liability.

    Still contend that Frank vs. Bas II was a horrible decision.

    There's no way that Bas won that fight.

    Frank in his prime was all around scary and this fight was post-prime Frank.

    If I trained with maurice smith half my career I'd consider myself a kickboxer too. He also had no choice but to stand because he couldn't get cung down. The more you know

    Kinda makes you wonder how shady the promotion is they may be fighting in. I hope it's not promoted by that corey williams fellow. Read alot of bad stuff about that guy

    This actually was a good fight... I remember thinking at first that Phil would just eventually find Franks chin in the first round or two... But the more I thought about how Phil fights and how he had lost in the past - I was thinking Frank could win the fight for sure... I do recall being a bit shocked about how easily Frank outclassed Phil..

    I think Frank is a guy that could be a top 3 MW in today’s scene.. obviously if he was younger and training at modern gyms/techniques..

    Lober?? Seriously.... They fought first when Frank was 19 and Lober was a grown ass man who had been training for years.. In the rematch, Frank put the screws to him. Utter domination...

    Frank was a product of the time... If he was training today and in his prime, he’s a contender, no doubt in my mind... One of the few...
