Default Rich Franklin Gets Tattooed After Losing UFC 126 Bet With Forrest Griffin

Holy crap, I can't believe he's going through with it!!

This one's gonna leave a mark.

Prior to their UFC 126 co-main event fight, Rich Franklin and opponent Forrest Griffin joked about the loser getting tattooed. At least it seemed like a joke.

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.

In a UFC-produced video that was released before the fight, Griffin said the loser should have to get "a big, flaming dragon tattoo, or something just hideous."

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.

Franklin's record dropped to 28-6 with 1 no contest with the defeat, but while the memory of the loss fades, the ink will be there to remind him.

In the meantime, the popular former UFC middleweight champion is in talks with film producers for his next acting work while waiting for his next assignment from the UFC.

Rich's words:

Quote:
"My 'Henna' Tattoo. Ok, nobody said it had to be REAL:-) Oh, and Forrest said he would pay for the removal so he owes me a bar of soap!"
