Before Rich Franklin and Forrest Griffin fought at UFC 126, the cleancut fighters put something on the line: the loser would get a tattoo. Griffin won the decision easily, dominating 14 of the 15 minutes in the octagon. After getting hammered in the fight, many people would have figured Franklin would have forgotten about the bet.
But that’s not the case.
Franklin tweeted on Thursday that he had a Friday appointment to get a dragon tattoo. MMA Fighting followed up on the story and got confirmation of the news. While he didn’t get a fruity rainbow or feminine ankle tat, he did indeed get a dragon on his back as they had joked before the fight. We still don’t have any pics of the tattoo but we’ll be sure to post them when they come in. And nobody can deny that Franklin is a man of his word. Even Griffin said he probably would have backed out had he lost, but not Franklin.Google+
