Making his second Submission Radio appearance was 3 time UFC Middleweight Champion and future Hall of Famer Rich “Ace” Franklin. Being one of MMA’s most accomplished fighters, Rich talks about his new role in the Singapore promotion of ONE FC and what it means to be VP of Asia’s largest MMA promotion. Rich also shares his thoughts on the recent controversies involving Chael Sonnen, Wanderlei Silva, and Vitor Belfort, as well as PED’s in MMA.
Even though Rich has his hands full with ONE FC, he still has one fight left on his UFC contract, and shares his latest thoughts on his last fight. Ever the fan favourite and nice guy, Rich happily answers some fan questions including who hit him the hardest in his career, his favourite knockout, unified rules vs global rules for MMA, the Chuck Liddell fight.
