FAIRFIELD, Ohio — Greg Franklin dabbled in professional MMA a few years ago, but is ready to attempt to follow in the footsteps of his famous brother.
On Saturday, Aug. 13, Greg Franklin will finish his amateur career by facing Detroit’s Terry Davinney in the light heavyweight main event of ICE 16 at Metropolis Nightclub. The 15-bout event begins at 8:30 p.m. with doors opening an hour earlier.
Greg’s amateur mark stands at 5-1 and he is 2-1 in ICE competition, while Davinney is 2-1 overall and 2-0 for ICE.
Of course, brother Rich Franklin is the UFC middleweight champion and recently completed a role as one of the two captains on the Spike-TV reality show “Ultimate Fighter.” Rich will be on hand to serve as the cornerman for his brother.
