DFW: Couture not Liddell is next for Franklin

source: twitter.com

Sherdog reported that Chuck Liddell  and Rich Franklin will likely meet at UFC 115:

Former UFC champions Chuck Liddell  and Rich Franklin have verbally agreed to meet in a light heavyweight tilt in June, Sherdog.com has learned from multiple sources. UFC 115, though not officially announced, has been tentatively scheduled for June 12 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Liddell, 40, just completed a six-week taping in Las Vegas for Season 11 of Spike TV’s “The Ultimate Fighter,” which debuts on March 31. Liddell and longtime nemesis Tito Ortiz served as opposing coaches on the show and were originally expected to meet for a third time at UFC 115. It remains unclear what will become of that proposed bout.

Dana White promptly issued a denial via twitter

  1. Not true! We are doing couture vs franklin not chuck. 
  2. Nothing happened to tito. Tito and I are cool.

this is rumor reporting that tabloids do. Dana white is doing good ruining websites news credibility.Rich avoided Okami's clinch game, and is better than Vera (as far as winning often and being a former ufc champ) but at 205 seems like an even matchup. I hope rich wins, unless randy can finish rich. I dont wanna see wall and stall as the main event, it gets old real quick.
