    Sorry if this has been posted before! Funny to see that even then he opens by getting kneed in the face a bunch of times. Looks like his boxing was a bit crap back then, but he's definetely grounding and pounding, which isn't something you see him do much of anymore.

    As for the Aldo fight, I think it could go eitehr way, but would (under even odds) bet on Aldo. I think if Aldo fights like he did against Hominick and Florian, however, he'll lose. Those fights were both impressive, and if he brings that game against Frankie he'll got out scored.

    LOL, I'm in the backround at 1:14 with a black tank top with my arms crossed. The fight was in the Bronx in a boxing gym that was like 100+ degrees inside.

    The guy he's fighting is Eric Uresk. At the time he was a greco and sambo guy. He is a coach at Alliance (previously at Extreme Couture) and Dominick Cruz's main sparring partner. Keep an eye out for him in the UFC or Bellator soon.

    After that fight some huge black guy with dreads, cut off jean shorts and wearing leather biker gloves fought a guy wearing a spandex undearwear with just his hands taped, lol. When they went to shake hands the spandex guy KOed other other dude with one punch. Dreads guy was there with 3 kids that were all under the age of 5 and no other parents. They all started crying because their Dad was KOed and bleeded out of his mouth. It was despicable. Underground fights are wild.

    That's how I imagine a fair amount of wrestlers look in their first pro fight.

    The end reminded me of the scene where Ralphie is beating up that Farkus bully in A Christmas Story.

    Damn, Frankie had to work for that one. Would suck to be the other guy, thinking you're getting a smoker and end up fighting a future champ.
