Rich Franklin's Eye After Henderson fight.





Franklin will not be needing surgery. Hopefully he will recover quickly as possible and be back to climbing the 205 ladder.

wow, that looks bad. that eye poke definately affected franklin, i think he only continued because there was 30 seconds left in the fight. if that happened earier on the fight would have been stopped. this is the second time in a year this has happened, problem is theres not much that can be done about it.

<--- the punch that started it all!

My current favirote fighters
Anderson Silva
Junior Dos Santos
Mauricio Rua
Alistair Overeem
Jon Jones

WAR dan hardy, paul daley, ross pearson and terry etim doing it for the britz!

Disgusting. I remember yelling at the TV "why the hell is he sticking his fingers out like that." Really pissed me off.
