Rich Franklin & MMA Rumor Bullshit Stories

I can't stand it when MMA sites publish rumors as fact to drive traffic to their sites while misleading fans because they lack journalistic integrity in not only accurate fact finding but also producing a reliable source for the reader to acknowledge that the story is in fact, credible.

Case in point is the rumor that Rich Franklin was going to fight Travis Lutter in March 2008. I will not name any sites at fault for rumor mongering to drive traffic to their sites but just Google "Rich Franklin vs Travis Lutter" and you may be interested in knowing that the rumor virus spreads faster than any STD and is often mistaken for fact when talked about enough times.

Here's a personal note from Rich "Ace" Franklin who happens to be the reliable source:

Hi guys. First off, I would like to thank everyone for the support. Thank you for the support leading up to, and since the fight with Anderson. He is a great fighter and deserves everyone's respect as a fighter, person, and ambassador to our sport. Also thank you for supporting American Fighter.

Todd tries to maintain our Myspace account because of my hectic schedule. Hopefully he is doing a good job for you all. He spends a good amount of time on here and does it for free. Sometimes he gets a t-shirt.

I am told there are rumors of me fighting multiple people in March. I have not signed for a fight in March. I don't believe that I am allowed to fight more than once in a night. I hope this clears up any confusion. I have not signed to fight anyone in March, or any other month.

Happy Holidays


So, to all the pricks who say this site used to be a good source of news well, wake the fuck up and stop absorbing garbage information from the vanilla MMA sites that don't give a shit about delivering accurate information with reliable sources.

We only want smart readers at MMA Fever, thanks for coming out!
