Forrest Griffin is just as good as Rich Franklin -- at everything
We've seen Brock Lesnar, Jon Jones, Kenny Florian and Brian Stann. Now it's Rich Franklin's turn to occupy the analyst chair for this weekend's UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" event. "Ace" will help out during the weigh-ins tonight (Feb. 24) alongside Jon Anik (coverage here) and the post-fight show on FUEL with Jay Glazer. How will Franklin, who used to be a school teacher, compare to the rest of the bunch?

Oh, to be a gambling man. Rich Franklin is making good on his promise that he would get a tattoo if he was to lose to Forrest Griffin at UFC 126, according to MMAFighting.com. After dropping a unanimous decision, "Ace" is apparently getting a dragon put on his back and will be providing photos once it is finished.
