Pink Casts Have Extraordinary Healing Powers


("Could you make it out to ‘the guy that ended my career’?")

According to Rich Franklin‘s business manager, J.T. Stewart the former UFC middleweight champion will not require surgery for the broken ulna he sustained in his UFC 115 knockout win over Chuck Liddell last month.

Stewart told MMAJunkie that Franklin could be back in the Octagon as soon as December.

"He needed to make sure it healed correctly," Stewart said. "He was feeling good. A few days before (the doctor’s appointment), he was telling some people, ‘I don’t think I’m going to need surgery. It’s feeling pretty good.’"


"If it hadn’t healed correctly, they would have had to probably re-break or reset it and put it back in a big cast," Stewart said. "It would have been a setback."

Franklin is raffling off the pink cast that was removed this week and is signed by both himself and Liddell. Tickets are $5 each and are available via www.americanfighter.com. The proceeds will benefit breast cancer research through the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation.

Although it’s an odd piece of memorabilia, it’s for a worthy cause. I don’t know why,  but I imagine a creepy Buffalo Bill-like superfan wearing it around the house along with a pair of fight-worn shorts and a self-inflicted shiner.

The replacement cast, Stewart says will stay on for another month and will prevent the perpetually active 35-year-old from weight training until it is removed.

"He’s not real happy about that," Stewart said. "But it could have been worse."

Stewart says that his charge is chomping at the bit to get back into the Octagon and that the win over Liddell should raise Franklin’s stock in the UFC’s light heavyweight division.

"I think he’s definitely motivated," Stewart said. "I think he was excited about how the (UFC 115) fight ended and that it was Chuck Liddell, a legend and Hall of Famer who’s so well-respected. Rich respects him a lot."

    I heard that Franklin only had the pink cast removed to switch it over to a mans color. Any word if the pink sock of Nick Ring has the same healing power? Or does he keep suffering set backs by rushing back to action too quickly? Just seemed like a semi related story, pink and the last season of TUF an all.

    This whole cast thing is kinda like the fight between Iceman and Ace Ventura. Just when Chuck starts throwin some of his "signature" Iceman shit, Franklin cuts him off early to make a little money for the boob fund.

    Thats seriously an awesome picture, Chuck is a great guy! Hopefully we can still see him fight! Is there even a chance he would go somewhere else given his past history & friendship with the UFC & DW?

    I totally just got why the cast was pink! I is working on that one for a good while there. Oh, and I like "career-ender" jokes as much as the next knuckle head, but in all honesty, Chuck's career was ended a while ago. I imagine that when Chuck goes to the doctor and has his reflexes tested the doctor has to reach for the smelling salts afterwards.

    Rich Franklin is such a class act that after Chuck signed his cast for breaking his arm, Rich returned the favor by signing Chuck's chin.

    "I think he was excited about how the (UFC 115) fight ended and that it was Chuck Liddell" Well... you can't get all that excited about knocking Chuck out these days. That's like saying you got really excited when you got laid and it was by the local whore. Might be better to save that excitement for when you knock out someone who isn't famous for being easily knocked out. Just sayin'.
