Rich Franklin Not A Fan Of Watching UFC Fights

“It’s different for me. Like I don’t sit down on a Saturday night and watch the fights like a casual fan. I’m analyzing fighters. The worst part about watching fights for me, it puts me in the mental mindset as if I’m there fighting. I’ve really gotten to the point where I don’t necessarily enjoy the fights as a spectator like I used to 15 years ago. I’ll watch the occasional fight with my friends, but even then you’ll see me sitting on the couch kind of bobbing and weaving as if I’m in the cage. It’s a really weird feeling. I’ll catch the highlights and read the headlines the next day.”

Fighting? Yes. Watching others fight? Not so much.

In a recent interview with, The Great MMA Debate Podcast, former UFC middleweight champion, Rich ‘Ace’ Franklin admitted that he isn’t a fan of watching fights.
