Rich Franklin Return?

5 Likes

It was a huge shock to see a fight with my first time watching him. He didn’t look like an asshole or a fighter. This fella looked and had the personality of a guy that didn’t dislike anyone.

Him/Tito/chuck/Hughes are my go to era

Yes please!!!

I knew Rich well, but we haven’t spoken in about 5 years. I have no idea how One is going, but if it fails, it won’t be because of him.

Yep, he’s still the vice president of one. They are planning on bringing One to the states here soon, and what better ambassador of the sport could you have than Rich Franklin.

Lol seeing this post just reminded me one’s on. Looked at the lineup…. I’ll probably just do something else.

That, and Rich isnt a complete piece of trash like the actor fag is.

If he fought in an exhibition against another retired guy from his era, that would be cool. Rich was clearly past his prime when he retired but his skill didn’t fall off a cliff like most others during his time, he still looked good in his last few fights.

Really?

That rules

Always thought this every time he fought, just figured one of his sparring partners targeted that eye :joy:

Likewise

I’ve talked about it on this forum before, but I started training with Rick in 2000 when I was 20 years old.

Place called Excalibur Fitness in West Chester, Ohio.

I have some great stories of just starting out with him.

He is one of the finest gentlemen I’ve ever met.

In all honesty the poster here (forget your name, atm) that has him as their profile picture always makes me think I’m talking to rich and the personality is always :+1:

He’s a good dude.

I believe he is the one I was telling some stories to last time I talked about Rich.

Why can’t JOSEPH ROGAN HAVE RICH ON?!?!

Appreciate it guys. Rich is the man. Definitely my all time favorite fighter. That being said I have no desire to see him fight. Still looks like he’s in great shape.
