    I know he's doing a lot of work with ONE FC but with regards to fighting, is he done? I'd like to see him fight Shogun. Both guys are well past their primes, both coming off devastating losses. It'd make for a good fight, I think.

    He always said he wanted to honor the last fight of his contract but that seems less and less likely.

    I think he might be done, unfortunately. I think he could have beat Michael Bisping or someone of that level, but I think he is done and well announce his retirement when it gets to the point where it is obvious he won't be coming back. Matt Hughes and Sean Sherk did the same thing.

    I don't think he's coming back sadly. Wish he would have come back for one more.

    Yeah
    He was juicing for a while when he took time off, but apparently he's not anymore so he could come back now

    "One knee from Anderson to my face took 3 years of my life, and the average life expectancy of a person who makes the average UFC salary is 60 years. If I took 10 knees from Anderson, how many years ago should I have died?"

    Rich Franklin is actually working in the circus in Ontario with a friend of mine.

    Rich Franklin's uncle is the owner of the circus and Rich works on it.

    They make little money, and it's extremely hard work.

    First off...if he's out in bum fuck Ontario working on a circus, I highly doubt he's coming back, and if he does, I doubt he's a serious contender again... it's a huge life style change.

    Secondly, I can't believe some guy who has fought for the title, and was a top notch fighter, is forced to work a job like on a circus. if you want to talk about fighter pay, there it is. A guy who was has fought for the title, is working quite possibly the dirtiest, most difficult, longest hour job Canada has to offer.

    I was going to make a thread about Rich working on the circus a few weeks ago but forgot, so there it is.

    Rich is my favorite fighter of all time, but right now he is wishing he hadn't thrown a lackadaisical body kick against high-level striker cung le.
