Excellent footwork, fast combinations, seamless blending of striking and wrestling while his heart and chin have created some of the most memorable fights in the UFC.
Against Yair Rodriguez, I believe Frankie's movement and footwork on the outside will be the most important key factor to pay mind to because that is where Yair is most dangerous - his kicks work as a cage-cutting mechanism which narrow his opponent's ability to escape. If Frankie is able to use his patented 'knee pick-to-punch combination', stutter steps, attacking off angles, leg kicks and forward pressure to drive Yair backward then I think he finds success in this fight. Allowing Yair to work in space will be detrimental given his height and reach advantage.
Rodriguez is also very crafty off his back, wrapping his opponents up while keeping active hips forcing them to constantly re-establish top control and positions. Frankie is an experienced wrestler and also a BJJ black belt under Ricardo Almeida but we've seen him caught in guillotines many times, though not ever submitted. However, an explosive and opportunistic fighter like Yair can capitalize on moments when Frankie drives in for head outside single legs. Who really knows how close Charles Oliveira came to ending the fight with Frankie via guillotine before the round end?
