With UFC 115 right around the corner, we turn our attention this week to some of the best signature tees designed for the former UFC Middleweight Champion Rich Franklin, who squares off against Chuck Liddell in the night’s main event. One of today’s most popular cagefighters, Franklin has defeated some of the best in the biz over the course of his career including Wanderlei Silva, Evan Tanner and Ken Shamrock.
With that being said, here’s a look at the latest UFC 115 walkout tee from TapouT, a Silver Star Signature Series design created for Franklin’s fight against Vitor Belfort at UFC 103, as well as a classic American Fighter basic logo tee.
Top 3 – Rich Franklin Signature T-shirts:
No strangers to the signature fighter T-shirt game, TapouT has joined forces with American Fighter on Franklin’s official UFC 115 walkout tee. Drawing some clever design inspiration from the classic G.I. JOE franchise, this latest signature walkout style symbolizes Franklin’s American fighting spirit in a unique design that combines TapouT and American Fighter logos, mixed with a waving flag and “Rich Franklin” written across the back.
Originally revealed back at UFC 103 when Franklin took on Vitor Belfort during the card’s main event, this Silver Star Signature Series T-shirt pays tribute to his “Ace” nickname with a design that evokes pure Silver Star styling. Both sides feature an ace symbol, including the initials “AF” twisted into a monogram design representing “American Fighter”, along with Franklin’s name on the back.
A classic basic logo tee that adds a comedic twist to a line from the film American Pie, this American Fighter Training T-shirt from Franklin’s own clothing company features the American Fighter logo front and center, with “Rated D for Damage” just below, and the words “One time at fight camp…” in reference to the weeks of preparation endured by Rich and team leading up to fight night.
