Despite the fact that Takeya Mizugaki lost a unanimous decision to Chris Cariaso on the FX broadcasted portion of the UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" preliminary card last night (Sat., Feb. 25, 2012) in Saitama, Japan, he was still paid his win bonus. That's because UFC President Dana White felt Mizugaki was the rightful winner of the bout and compensated him accordingly.
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?
