Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Forrest Griffin and Rich Franklin Would Like to Propose a Side Bet

(VidProps: YouTube/UFC)

A week or so ago, when we noted that nearly every claim made in the official UFC 126 trailer was at least debatable (if not an out-and-out lie), the one fight saved from our incredulity was Forrest Griffin vs. Rich Franklin. Maybe that’s because the best hype the UFC could drum up for this bout was to have its voiceover guy dramatically bellow, “Former champions Forrest Griffin and Rich Franklin will battle it out!” Yep, that feels … accurate. But if, like us, you think this meeting between two old warhorses lacks a certain sizzle, you’re not alone. Even the fighters themselves appear to understand this fight needs a little something extra to get people really emotionally invested.

And so Griffin, that mischievous little imp, would like to propose a gentleman’s wager on the outcome of this scrap: Loser gets tattooed.  A bemused Franklin – who from the looks of this vid has spent the last seven months since his victory over Chuck Liddell making sure that lifetime membership at the tanning salon pays for itself – seems oddly cool with the idea. He suggests the loser must get inked-up with a picture of the winner, which to us is a truly inspired idea. Unless you guys have any other suggestions.

@ intercept - I remember that show. I also remember it being the debut/career starter of Tila Tequila (though I don't think she had adopted that name yet), which counter-balanced Ted's awesomeness by introducing us to that horrible, horrible little troll bitch.

Tramp stamps are good luck, just ask Gray Maynard.

I should also say though, the first thing I thought when I saw those claims about Belfort on that commercial was "bullshit"

I really hope the anti-UFC bent I've been seeing lately doesn't indicate a new permanent direction for the whole site. I can't go to Bloodyelbow any more, since every article is so full of bitterness and bile due to whatever their issue is- not being credentialed and given free tickets or whatever.

loser has to get a tattoo that says:
I am a lover, not a fighter
RSparrow- February 1, 2011 at 5:23 pm
I call bullshit.

This is a fucking great idea. I was just talking shit at my gym about how ho-hum Forest has been since Silva mushroom stamped him and here you go. Good on you Forest.

I love this idea and am now more excited for the fight .

win win

Loser gets the picture of Josh Koshcheck (insert insertion-in-mouth-joke here") from the story below. That's the greatest pic of Kos ever, and would make a great tat.

Loser should get a Strikeforce tattoo. See how much DW likes them after that.
DesolationUSA- February 1, 2011 at 3:55 pm
better yet, they have to get the horrid johny cash tattoo from belchers arm and have lesnars giant cock sword piercing it.
DangadaDang- February 1, 2011 at 3:51 pm

I was going to say the exact same thing. Touche good sir.
Dojojoe- February 1, 2011 at 3:45 pm
Wonder how much a sponsor would pay to have their logo tattoo'd on a fighter?

Winner has to go into intensive, honest therapy. Loser has to be the therapist.
ghostboner- February 1, 2011 at 3:35 pm
I'm mad because I wanted to make the dick/sword brown pride joke. Now I'm tempted to make fun of MRuss' tatts... Na I vote the winner gets his choice of Buffer or Goldy. Or both. In banana hammocks. Embracing... On the backs of his thighs.
ghostboner- February 1, 2011 at 3:32 pm
Oh fuck all you guys.
Austin3210- February 1, 2011 at 3:20 pm
A tramp stamp that says "Here: in case you go to decision"
Stenhård- February 1, 2011 at 3:15 pm
The looser have to get the exact same tattoo as Alan Belcher
RwilsonR- February 1, 2011 at 3:14 pm
The loser gets a tattoo of a large veiny penis on top of a sword hilt that covers their entire abdomen and chest, which is stuck through a massive poorly drawn yet colorful head of Johnny Cash, and topped off with giant banner letters written in old english calligraphy font that spell out the words "Brown Pride."

...And maybe a grenade or two on their hands and/or necks.
Dojojoe- February 1, 2011 at 3:03 pm
Large sword spanning from the stomach to the chest. That'd look awesome!

If Griffin loses he gets a tattoo of Lloyd Christmas...

If Franklin loses he gets a tattoo of Ace Ventura...

Loser gets a Spider Silva tatt. Done and done!
Hexed79- February 1, 2011 at 2:59 pm
How is it not completely obvious? Loser gets Anderson Silva tattooed on their chin.
Fried Taco- February 1, 2011 at 2:59 pm
The loser must get inked up with the winner's weiner - on their chest ala Cock Chestnar!
