UFC fighter Rich Franklin's father died last night of a heart attack. No other information is available at this time but it could cause another delay to his scheduled fight against Travis Lutter, now scheduled for UFC 83 in April.

I hope rich gets over this as soon as he can and comes back better than ever. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.

I feel for Rich and family, I couldn't begin to understand how much that would hurt.

Take all the time you need to heal Rich, Keep your head up.

It's sad whenever someone loses a loved one, especially a parent...

But Damn, I can't speak for anyone else, but I Especially hate it when it's a good person who goes through the loss.

PRoyers for Rich and his family

If its none of your buisness and irelevant to you, just dont post on a thread about it dude, people are trying to show respect, not go round telling everybody else its none of their buisness.
