Rich Franklin and Forrest Griffin’s Tattoo Bet Ends in Henna-Dragon Nightmare

Remember when Forrest Griffin and Rich Franklin tried to add some heat to their UFC 126 meeting by suggesting that the loser would have to get an embarrassing tattoo? As Griffin suggested, “I think the loser should have to get like a big, flaming dragon tattoo, or something just hideous.”

Franklin lost the fight by unanimous decision, and we quickly forgot about this silly business — except Franklin didn’t. An MMAFighting report came out Friday claiming that Ace had actually visited a tattoo shop to honor the bet that nobody thought was real. Responding to the news, Griffin said:

I don’t believe it. We didn’t even shake hands on it. I definitely would not be getting it if I lost. I’d be like, ‘Yeah, yeah, of course,’ but then if I lost, you would have to knock me out to get me in that chair…If he really gets it, I’ll pay for his tattoo removal. I did get the win [bonus] money. I got a couple extra bucks so I guess I can take care of it if he wants to get rid of it.”

Well, false alarm, guys. Rich punked us by getting one of those henna tattoos, the body ornamentation of choice among Indian women and young carnival attendees. Franklin explained on his website: “Ok, nobody said it had to be REAL :-) Oh, and Forrest said he would pay for the removal so he owes me a bar of soap!”

And as usual, the man with the giant brown dragon on his back gets the last laugh.

    Dundun! dun dunddundunda! DUNDUNDUNDa! MORTAL KOMBAT! Now we really know that Rich wants in on the movie biz since hes activated his Sag card. Tattoo only vaguely resembles due to real fighters infringing on fake fighter trademarks.

    Mock me if you must, but I think that actually would be a pretty cool tattoo, at least the artist who did it is talented imo.

    @rogerw - In order to excuse your terrible taste in tattoos, I will assume one of the following 2 things: 1. You are 13 years old and also think that a Pokemon tattoo would be pretty rad, or 2. You already have a tribal armband tattoo that only goes 3/4 of the way around your bicep.
  17. Null Kuhl Says:

    Tue, 02/22/11 - 12:07


    p.s. The armband could also be barbed wire. But it still only goes 3/4 of the way around.
