What was the situation with Franklin at the time? I've read that he simply left after his deal was done, and took the fight with more money. But the whole time he was billed as a ufc rep. Although they did the same with BJ Penn, he was labelled a champion.

The story I heard was that Dana didn't want Rich to go fight in Inoki's show, but Rich went ahead and did it anyway. He, of course, lost the fight, which didn't sit well with Dana. Maybe a huge Rich fan has a better account of what happened.

I really don't know the exact contract stipulations.

Did you see rich's head snap back? That was brutal. I think Lyoto deserves a shot at the title soon.
