Rich Franklin detained at LAX

Rich Franklin

Former UFC champion Rich ‘Ace’ Franklin had quite the interesting layover at LAX airport earlier this week.

While going through immigration Franklin was detained by immigration officials and reportedly handcuffed and thrown in an isolation cell according to MMAMania.

Franklin’s publicist Daphne Ortiz revealed the MMAWeekly that Franklin was not made aware of why he was being detained until later on in the incident.

Ultimately, Franklin was let go after it was discovered he was not the convicted felon who shares the same name and is also from Ohio.
