Injury Update: Rich Franklin from his site...

For all of you who are concerned about Rich's injuries, here is what we know so far. His nose was reset in the locker room right after the fight. A few days later, after meeting with the Doctor, it was decided that he would need surgery on his nose. He had his blood work done on 10/18, his surgery is scheduled for 10/19 and then he will have a post-op visit on 10/23 to make sure everything is okay. Rich and his team appreciate all the support from his fans, and we will continue to update you as we get new information.


ouch....reconstructive no doubt...

Thanks I've been dying to know what's going on with him. Wish they had mentioned his other injuries.

uugghhh, I cringe thinking how that must have felt when they reset Ace's nose! I had my pinky toe broken once and having it reset hurt like a son of a Bi@&t.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

I dislocate my big toe once...that hurt like crazy putting back in, I also dislocated my shoulder, but surprisingly that one did not hurt to put back in....hurt like mad while it was out...but relocation was no pain at all.

Yeah It would prob hurt bad. I had done to my thumb before and it hurt BAD way worse then when i broke it. If that really is all his injuries its good to know he doest have any broken ribs
