Former UFC middleweight champion and veteran fighter Rich Franklin underwent successful hernia surgery last week and still expects to return to the octagon this spring.J.T. Stewart, Franklin's business manager, shared the news with the Dayton Daily News, a content partner site of MMAjunkie.com.Franklin slotted the Jan. 12 surgery after a busy 2009 fight schedule continually forced him to postpone the procedure.

This is good news I really like Rich. I hope he can stay competetive in the UFC he's dropped a couple of his last fights but it wasn't like he was fighting slouches. There's no shame in losing a close decision to Henderson and getting TKOd by belfort. I think I'd like to see Franklin fight Shogun that could be cool. Or Randy if he needs a fight after beating Coleman.
