WHO IS RICH FRANKLIN?
Franklin’s articulate personality and fan friendly demeanor made him the perfect ambassador of mixed martial arts, which helped pushed the UFC to global prominence. Throughout his career, Franklin has been the go-to interview subject for mainstream media, with appearances on major cable networks like CNBC and FOX.
As the company’s most visible spokesperson, Franklin is highly sought after for his experiences on the international stage. In his presentation “How To Be A Loser” at TedxUChicago, Franklin’s wry wit and personal account of overcoming adversity resonated with audiences throughout the country.
Away from the confines of the cage, Franklin believes in living a life of purpose, and is constantly sourcing for new avenues of personal growth.
He has made successful forays into other ventures, including several crossovers into Hollywood, speaking engagements, teaching seminars and even starting his own clothing line.
At present, Franklin is the successful host of his own travel show ONE Warrior Series while serving as Vice President of ONE Championship, Asia’s largest mixed martial arts promotion.
An educator at heart, Franklin has been championing a fighting mindset as long as he can remember.
Just as he fought to garner recognition for mixed martial arts as a sport, Franklin seeks to challenge his own perspectives and grow as a person.
His latest project, Quite Franklin is another forum to engage in meaningful discussions and provoke thought.
Equally comfortable on a microphone as he is behind a camera, Franklin’s inquisitive persona will engage guests on current affairs and social phenomena.
As he navigates this space, Franklin hopes listeners can join him on the podcast and come away entertained and informed.
