Rich Franklin doesn’t just beat fighters … he breaks them. It’s interesting to note over the years how many promising guys Ace has derailed. The list includes Evan Tanner, Roberto Ramirez, Edwin Dewees, Jorge Rivera, Ken Shamrock, Nate Quarry, and of course David L’Oiseau. David was one of the hottest things since sliced bread before he took a five round pounding. Now he’s fighting unknowns in the Art of War promotion after washing out of the UFC and EliteXC.
So now we have to wonder if Jason MacDonald will face the same fate as many others have. Or was the curse broken when Anderson Silva gave Rich a hearty bowl of karma flakes? With Jason facing Rory Singer at UFC72, we have our best chance yet of seeing if there really is a curse. After all, is there any other explanation if Macdonald loses to Singer?
