Rich Franklin Looks To Make Run At 205lb Title

Rich Franklin found himself in a situation where he would likely never get another shot at the middleweight title as long as Anderson Silva was kingpin, but it looks like Franklin is happy in his new home at 205lbs and wants to take a run at the title:

“If I cut back down to 185, it's a completely different cut to make it and I will have completely undone everything I've done to put on the size I have. I want to make a run for the title and I don't want to keep doing things that are counterproductive to that, like fights at 195. You can't count Chuck out of any fight. Yeah, he hasn't fought in a year, and yeah, he's lost four of his past five fights, but look at what he's done over the span of his career. He's a legend and he has beaten such an incredible list of opponents, it would be a huge mistake to look past a guy like him.”
