Having suffered an apparent broken arm while absorbing a kick, Franklin knocked out Liddell with a counterpunch 4:55 into round one in the UFC 115 “Liddell vs. Franklin” headliner on Saturday at the General Motors Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Perhaps the greatest light heavyweight in the history of the sport, the 40-year-old Liddell has lost three consecutive fights, all by knockout. He had not appeared inside the Octagon in 14 months and had already been urged to retire by longtime friend and UFC President Dana White.
Franklin tasted Liddell’s legendary power early, as he wobbled on the end of a right hand. However, he kept his nose in the fight. Near the end of the first round, Liddell backed the former middleweight champion against the cage, overcommitted on an overhand right and left himself wide open for the counter. Franklin sprang his trap beautifully and crumpled “The Iceman” with a tight right hook to the face. Subsequent punches followed but were not needed. Liddell was done, perhaps for good.
