Matt Hamill: An Ace Up His Sleeve?

By: Kelvin Hunt

In a few weeks UFC 88 will be upon us, and a interesting fight that many have forgotten about is Matt Hamill vs. Rich Franklin.  This will be Franklin’s first fight at LHW since a TKO win over Ken Shamrock in 2005.  Hamill is coming off a TKO win over Tim Boetsch in April of this year.  This is an interesting fight for a couple of reasons, so let’s take a look at how each fighter matches up going into this fight.

  • Franklin likes to stand and trade, but is versed on the ground as well.  Whereas Hamill is a very good wrestler with a standup game that has improved leaps and bounds since being on The Ultimate Fighter.
  • Hamill has a very good chin and incredible strength.  Franklin has a good chin as well and good striking but doesn’t have that one punch KO ability (save the Quarry fight).
  • Hamill’s biggest question mark is his stamina, whereas there is no question about Franklin’s ability to go the distance.
