If you have been missing MMAWeekly Radio over the past few weeks, then you have been missing some great interviews. Today, Rich Franklin went one-on-one with MMAWeekly Radio co-hosts Ryan Bennett and Frank Trigg, as Franklin went into detail about his injuries and when he thinks he will truly be ready to return.
Franklin started sparring this week and took a knee to the head that required seven stiches. Franklin laughed as he said, “It’s god’s way of punishing me, saying I’m not ready yet…”
Rich believes he is on schedule for an October return fight, but he will still need to receive medical clearance between now and then.
Rich Franklin also discussed, in detail, his thoughts about potentially Matt Lindland (who recently signed with the WFA to fight Quinton Jackson). A caller asked Franklin about Lindland, and you will be very interested to hear how the UFC Middleweight Champion responded to the Lindland question.
It has been a great week on the radio show, as the guys have broken down one fight per day leading up to UFC 60. If you missed Franklin today, or Mike Swick earlier this week, or anybody last week (which included Quinton Jackson, Matt Lindland, Joe Riggs, Joe Stevenson, and Chuck Liddell, and yes, that was just in ONE week), then check it out today in the MMAWeekly radio archive.
Plus, if you join our Premium Package for just five bucks a month, you’ll get the weigh-in radio show on Friday and the pre-game radio show on Saturday, not to mention all of our UFC 60 Insider videos all week long. It’s exclusively from MMAWeekly.com.
