But don't ever say Rich Franklin isn't a man of his word. True to his promise, Franklin -- who lost the fight via unanimous decision -- visited a tattoo shop on Friday to begin the process of getting inked.
"I don't believe it," Griffin told MMA Fighting. "We didn't even shake hands on it. I definitely would not be getting it if I lost. I'd be like, 'Yeah, yeah, of course,' but then if I lost, you would have to knock me out to get me in that chair."
Franklin's manager JT Stewart told MMA Fighting that Franklin did indeed get a dragon on his back.
"I tried to talk him into getting Forrest on his ankle. He said no," Stewart told MMA Fighting.
Neither Franklin nor Griffin had ever previously had any tattoos before making the bet.
