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.

why is it dumb? maybe it's a really sweet dragon with big-ass fangs and firebreath with a sexy maiden in a chainmail bikini riding its back.

He could've at least got something meaningful. Unless, that was the tattoo that was agreed upon. Phone Post

If Rich wanted this tattoo for a while and was just using this as an excuse to get it then maybe I could understand. Otherwise this is just continuing the trend of making tattoos completely meaningless. Phone Post

It's not dumb, a tattoo adds adds 15% to your overall toughness, just ask all the mma hipsters.

 Tattoos have always been completely meaningless.  This tattoo at least signifies that Rich is a man that is true to his word and would rather make himself look like a fool than a liar or whelcher.

 Having too much to drink is the meaning behind most tattoos.  It seems that most tattoos are a persons ways to cover up thier own insecurities, or they are trying to prove to themselves or others about how crazy, wild, or artistic they are.

My wife has 7 or eight tattoos and they are all hideous.  There is only one that she can explain any understandable reason for getting, and that reason was she wanted to do something wild.  The rest, a horiscope sign (everyone has a sign, who fucking cares),  sun, stars, moon, some stupid thing on her foot.  They don't mean shit, she thought they'd look cool, but they just look trashy.  At least she had the sense to get them in places that they can be covered up, I'd love to hear someone explain the meaning behind their job stopping face and neck tattoos.  The only logical reason someone would do that is if they never wanted to have to work a full time job again.
