Rich Franklin Likely To Stay At 205lbs Following UFC 99 Bout

0

Former UFC Middleweight Champ Rich Franklin is now training with the man who beat him for the crown, Anderson Silva, and now Franklin tells The Dayton Daily News that he will likely stay at 205lbs following his UFC 99 195lb catch weight bout with Wanderlei Silva:

“I'll say this much,” Franklin told the newspaper. “With training with Anderson out here in L.A. and him being the champ at 185, it really makes me feel like I don’t have a place at 185 pounds anymore.

“I don't see myself going to back to 185.”
