I'm more shocked when I don't see Rich with a black eye these days. Dude bruises like a peach.

He got it from the staredown at the weigh ins.

Hamill hit him with so much power when he connected. But its true Rivh seems to bruise pretty easy compared to other fighters.

Fun trivia: In danish "kamp" means "match" or "fight". So Martin Kampmann really lives up to his name.

Hell when he was walkin into the cage to fight hamil and on the countdown Rich had a slight shiner......

Funny dude i was being serious...like i dont have anything better to do....The reality is rich has walked into every fight since Anderson with somewhat of a shiner........prior to Anderson he may have entered the cage with a shiner but the point is he has never not had bruising since that fight......thats the difference.... here let rich tell you...Interviewer asked rich's worst injury? "A broken nose. My opponent caught me with a knee to my face that pushed my septum three inches to the right. I had to have surgery and it was a major healing process. It was one of the worst experiences of my life and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s illegal to knee people in the face if they’re on the ground. If you’re both standing up, it’s fine."

Franklin being bruised up just makes me more of a fan. He keeps fighting like he does with constantly black eyes, it just makes him more of an awesome badass.

Rich has a disorder called Joe Louis Syndrome. Named after the famous boxer, it is a disorder that makes the pigmentation around the orbital bone to turn black. If you look closely, it's worse in the fall/winter and much better in summer/spring. I have it too, but not to such an extent as him I don't believe.
