Just saw Rich Franklin's wife with a group of women, except Rich is not even in Indy. Weird. It's like she's here on a girl's getaway weekend
Frank Mir getting some boos as he makes his entrance to Kanye West's "Amazing."
Jon Jones just tweeted he has "homework" to do. Likely foreshadowing a future scrap with Ryan Bader.
