It also kind of swiped Franklin's teacher to cage fighter storyline. I'm guessing if they're using Franklin as a springboard, then they're gonna focus on Pat Miletich and his stable of mid-west fighters that rose to prominence. Paints a nice picture of Americana. That brief period in the sport when all the champions were handsome, white, middle-class, and wholesome boys with no charisma to speak of.  The upcoming Warrior film has the honor of being Hollywoods first serious(ly cheesie) take on MMA.
