UFC goes "All Access" with Rich Franklin for UFC 93
As the Ultimate Fighting Championship gears up for next week's "UFC 93: Franklin vs. Henderson" event, former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin will be the focus of a new episode of "UFC All Access."
The 60-minute "All Access" program debuts Jan. 15 at 1 a.m. EST/PST.
Franklin (24-3 MMA, 11-2 UFC), who competes for the second time since moving up to the light-heavyweight division last year, meets Dan Henderson (23-7 MMA, 3-2 UFC) in the UFC 93 main event.
The winner of the pay-per-view bout earns a coaching spot opposite Michael Bisping on "The Ultimate Fighter: U.S. vs. U.K.," the ninth installment of the UFC's popular reality series. The show begins taping immediately after UFC 93, which takes place Jan. 17 at The 02 in Dublin, Ireland.
Franklin, who's been training in Seattle with Matt Hume, last competed in September. He defeated one-time training partner Matt Hamill with a third-round TKO at Atlanta's UFC 88 event.
Since a loss to Lyoto Machida at a December 2003 event in Japan, Franklin is 12-2 (with 10 stoppages). His only losses have come to current 185-pound champ Anderson Silva.
In his "All Access" episode, Franklin will discuss the fight with Henderson, why Seattle has become his new pre-event getaway and his ventures outside of fighting, including the growing American Fighter brand.
