Rich Franklin Gets Tattooed After Losing UFC 126 Bet With Forrest Griffin

Prior to their UFC 126 co-main event fight, Rich Franklin and opponent Forrest Griffin joked about the loser getting tattooed. Appearently, Rich Franklin is a man of his word. True to his promise, Franklin visited a tattoo shop Friday to begin the process. Neither Franklin nor Griffin had ever previously had any tattoos before making the bet.

In a UFC-produced video that was released before the fight, Griffin said the loser should have to get “a big, flaming dragon tattoo, or something just hideous.”

Franklin’s manager JT Stewart told MMA Fighting that Franklin did indeed get a dragon on his back: “I tried to talk him into getting Forrest on his ankle. He said no”
