UFC 114 Bet Pick: Chuck "Iceman" Liddell Vs Rich Franklin

Chuck has lost 4 of 5 and has been dramatically KOd in 3 of them prompting Dana White to say his career is over for the sake of his health. Rich has had 2 highlight KO losses to Anderson Silva that he seems to have never recovered from mentally. Rich was quickly KOd in his last fight to Vitor Belfort. Both fighters are strikers and should make a good fan friendly match up for UFC 115. Chuck looks good in Vancouver and is in shape and focused but he is 40 years old. Evans, Rua and Jackson all had the hand speed and game plan to catch Chuck inside. Franklin has a decent 25-5 record but has not fought the level of competition that Chuck has at 205. Taking Chuck Liddell as a sentimental favorite at +110 odds and a value pick. Either fighter could end it but Rich Franklin at -140 odds fighting at 205 lbs is over priced. Take the Chuck at +110 and see if he can pull a Couture and come back for old man time.
