UFC wants Cung Le vs. Rich Franklin at Fuel TV 6 in Macao

...if Le is healthy enough to fight at the November event, UFC president Dana White wants to pit him against former champion Franklin

UFC on FUEL TV 6 takes place Nov. 10 at Cotai Arena, Venetian Macau Resort Hotel in the Chinese special administrative region. The event's main card airs on FUEL TV, and Le vs. Franklin likely would serve as the headliner

"If he fights in China, he will fight Rich Franklin," White told MMAjunkie.com

White, though, said the Sanshou kickboxer and former Strikeforce champion is in a walking cast due to some bone bruising suffered in his UFC 148 win over Patrick Cote. They plan to talk again on Monday for an update on his recovery.

I feel like this fight deserves more than slapping it as a main event for Fuel.Rich coming off a Main event PPV win and Cung.......well just being cung deserves co main ppv status. I get Fuel but not everyone does, should be on FX at least.

Rich wins this fight easy. I'd like to see him fight better competition. Franklin vs. Sonnen would be good.
