Luiz Cane: I want Rich Franklin

by John Morgan | source: mmajunkie.com
 


Cane was originally believed to be fighting Keith Jardine in April, but those plans changed when "The Dean of Mean" was pulled into a March contest with Jackson. While the 28-year-old Brazilian has no problems catering to the needs of his employer, Cane hopes the UFC will reward him with a big-name fight this fall.

"I work for the UFC, and I will fight whoever they say," Cane said. "I thought they gave me an excellent fight in Cantwell.

"But a fight that would fit perfectly would be against Rich Franklin. Without a doubt, this would be a fight that I would love to fight, and I am sure the fans would like to see it too."

Franklin is one of the few marquee names not currently tied to another fight at this time. And after earning a June win over Wanderlei Silva at UFC 99, Franklin could be available in the fall, Cane's currently targeted return date – provided "Ace" can get a new deal sorted out with the UFC in time to arrange the bout.
