Teaching has always come natural to Rich Franklin. From his days as a math teacher back in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio, the former UFC middleweight champion has always taken to his ability to teach and help a new generation learn.

During the second season of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality show, Franklin took his teaching skills to the mat and helped a group of young fighters follow their dreams in making it to the UFC. Fighters eager to learn under Franklin included Marcus Davis, Keith Jardine, Seth Petruzelli, and new UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans.

Since then Franklin has had a very busy and storied career, but the chance to revisit the days of The Ultimate Fighter don't particularly excite the Ohio native, as he is set to do that very thing if he defeats Dan Henderson at UFC 93 in Ireland.

And I'm hoping this is "just another" knockout (or TKO) for Hendo.

Yeah great teacher, just like when he tried to "teach" Matt Serra to take a knee at the beginning of a fight on TUF...
