Rich Franklin is probably gonna party in the E.R. after Forrest Griffin fight

Former UFC middleweight champion, Rich Franklin was asked by a fan ‘Dude, where are you going to party after the fight?’ Frankilin replied ‘Probably the E.R.’ Now this can only mean good things for fans watching UFC 126, who can expect a stand up war between “Ace and his opponent Forrest Griffin on February 5th.

Franklin, speaking via Tapology, said:

“It’s funny because I was asked by a fan once, ‘Dude, where are you going to party after the fight?’ I looked at him and said, ‘Probably the E.R.’ That’s where I spend most of my after parties. Even when I win a fight-like the Chuck Liddell fight-I still spend the evening in the hospital. It does wear on you mentally. When things like the (UFC 93) eye gouge happen, which really changed the shape of that eye, you start to think about what you would do if you lost your vision.”

“I would never be able to fight again. When I finish fighting I want to be able to do things; maybe I’ll run a marathon or a triathlon or something like that. I like to go hiking; I’m an active person. All it takes is one moment in this sport for all of that to be taken away from you, so those thoughts do creep into my head sometimes.”
