The word seared into the mind of any fighter, be they a current, former, or aspiring champion, is “title.”

The belt, whatever form it takes, is an all-consuming obsession, measured in steps towards or away from it. Lives are re-arranged in its pursuit. Focus must be unwavering for belts that mean something.

Former champions often tie themselves to the return trail most intensely. So intertwined with their ego is the belt, they lose sight of everything else.

Rich Franklin doesn’t appear to be one of those people.
