Definitely not my favorite fighter and I don't like his style much, but I gotta give respect when somebody deserves it. Rich is a tough fighter and is solid everywhere. He's not a master at anything but solid and can fight wherever the fight may go. He is also very tough and can take big shots. Very hard to put away and has competed with the best in MMA. Much Respect.

Feel the same way. Not a fan, but tough guy.

Franklin is underrated by a lot of people, but what's up with his weird hard/brittle bones? Seriously, his strikes seem to do a lot of soft tissue damage but he cracks faster than a plate at a greek wedding. I guess that's why he had to become CYBORG SOLDIER????

ttt for the doulton destroyer

That is a painful, PAINFUL break. One of our goalkeepers had the same injury form colliding with a post - he's not a soft lad by any means, but was nearly in tears with agony

Rich is a True Warrior to fight on like that and get the KO

<blockquote>estanmilko - ^Depends, I broke mine and didn't feel any pain from it

A broken forearm is notoriously painful. Maybe you had a little ulna fracture, but if you broke your actual forearm and felt no pain then either

1. You are desensitised to pain
2. You are lying

Franklin might need a plate and a few screws put in. You would be in agony, guaranteed. And in Franklins position turtle up and tap.

As I said, Franklin is a warrior

I have a metal plate and 6 screws in my forearm, my ulna was snapped in 2 from an americana.... ZERO pain. I'm not saying it can't hurt, I'm just saying that it doesn't always hurt and I'm proof of it.

lol all you want but I have a 6" scar down my forearm and had to take a year out of BJJ for it. I've broken both my ankles at different times and only one of those hurt but that one hurt a lot so I obviously do feel pain.

The worst thing about it is that one of my ankle breaks came from collapsing in the hospital after the surgery to put the plate in.......

Oh and someone in our BJJ class was complaining about a lump on his lower leg. Turned out he'd broken his leg and not noticed and now it was all healed.

Fuck off. I'm not trying to say I'm a tough guy, I'm just presenting situations where a broken limb can not hurt.

Like I said, imagine KO'ing a guy whilst you have a broken arm.

Fuckin Legend

And tbh, I think you're full of it. No offense. You don't 'not notice' a fucking broken leg.

If you were in Franklins position you would cry, nevermind be able to fight
