Rich Franklin out until "late summer" at earliest

According to his manager, Franklin had successful surgery yesterday but won't be back in the Octagon before late summer. Definitely a bummer. Get well "Ace"!

ttt for quick healing!

Dang that's a long layoff and he's not getting any younger. Franklin is a class act and it's always exciting to watch his fights. Here's hoping he can string some wins together when he returns!

Damn that sucks. Hope Ace heals up quickly. One of the truely good people in the sport who always puts on a good fight win or lose

 Great guy but he shouldnt come back to 205... by the time he comes back bisping will have gotten his ass kicked so that would make for a good fight.

would love to see ace bloody that brit up... brilliant!
