LOOKING BACK: FRANKLIN’S CAREER

Check out this cool piece from Bloody Elbow, taking a look back at Rich Franklin’s career.  Here’s a sample from the article: “In the mid-2000’s Franklin was one of the best Middleweight fighters in the world. A UFC Middleweight champion with two successful title defenses, Franklin was a tough fighter with big time KO power – power that he most famously displayed against Nate Quarry in what remains an all time great highlight reel KO. And yet even at the time, Franklin had his share of detractors. To understand why, we need to look at his rise to the belt.”
