- The fact that Rich Franklin refuses to join an elite camp and trains with his best buddies Matt Brown and Jorge Gurgel instead. I feel like if Franklin would have joined an elite camp like AKA, Greg Jackson's, ATT or even Roufusport, he would have had much more success in his already incredible career.
This is very very true. Rich has done incredibly well for not being part of an elite camp and pretty much handling his own training. But he could have been much better with the camp behind him, even still at this late in the game
