Anton Tabuena, MMA Fighting

This is the UFC on FUEL 6 live blog for Rich Franklin vs. Cung Le, a middleweight bout at Saturday's UFC event at the Cotai Arena in Macau.

Franklin has won three of his past five fights, while Cung Le is 1-1 in his UFC career.

Check out the live blog below.

Round 1: The referee in charge of the action is Marc Goddard. Both fighters open orthodox. Lots of feeling out with Franklin sticking out the jab and Le trying to counter with inside kicks and right hooks. Franklin sitting in the pocket with combinations, but they're mostly blocked. And then just like that, a right hook from Le absolutely smashes Franklin with a crushing overhand right off of an opposite-side middle kick. Franklin crashes to the mat face first and is completely out.

Cung Le def. Rich Franklin via KO at of 2:17 round 1
