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.

*Update: Dana White has refuted this bout via his twitter: "Not true! We are doing couture vs franklin not chuck.    1 minutes ago   via web"

 Good. This is a much better fight than Chuck- Tito 3.
Although, I have to admit as a long time Chuck fan, the idea of Chuck dismantling Tito for a 3rd time was growing on me.

As for this fight though, I think Chuck could easily have enough gas left in the tank to KO Franklin.
I have no doubt if they met up in their prime's that Chuck would have shit canned Franklin bad.

Chuck is looking at his best years in the rear view mirror but Ace is starting to look like damaged goods to some extent.
I feel like Anderson and Vitor really put a hurtin on his confidence and the life of his chin.

Striking power- Chuck
Technical striking- Ace
Heart- Chuck
Cardio- Ace

To me this is pretty damn close to a pick em fight.

Agreed. It's too bad that we all have to get old. :(

inf0 - <p>I got Chuck.. when's the last time Rich destroyed anybody?
 </p>

Are you serious? What about Matt Hamill?

The last time Chuck destroyed anybody was the last time he faced Tito and that was in 2006.

CombatsportsofDEATH - Ok guys, here's what happened:

Tito has inflamed chlamydia. They were getting blood tests for insurance reasons for TUF and the tests came back mid-season and he has a really bad case of chlamydia.



If this is just your BS, you should be banned.

Anything to back this up?
