A light heavyweight fight between former champions Rich Franklin and Forrest Griffin is in the works for the UFC's card on Super Bowl Saturday, Feb. 5, which tentatively has been labeled UFC 127.

Sources with knowledge of the planned bout told MMA Fighting that the fight has yet to be signed, but is the intended direction of the promotion. Additionally, sources have informed MMA Fighting's Mike Chiappetta the battle between the two former champions is expected for that event.

The bout will likely serve as the pay-per-view's co-main event under an anticipated middleweight title fight between champion Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort. Light heavyweight contenders Jon Jones and Ryan Bader are also expected to fight on the card. The event has not yet been announced, but is expected to take place in Las Vegas.

Only thing forrest has made look ez is how he got knocked senseless by anderson and ko'd by jardine. I'm a forrest fan, but... So ez on the ez queenie.

This should be a good fight all in all. Richie still has some good stuff and forrest is still tough.

Huge fan of Rich, gotta root for anyone from Cincinnati, and i like Forrest. Should be a fast pace striking contest (they may take it to the mat however) but an easy FOTN contendor.

 This is working out to be a good card. Minus 120 which wont be too bad most of the upcoming UFCs look pretty good.

I think this will be a good fight, but for whatever reason I've never been a huge fan of either of these guys, so I'm probably a lot less excited than most will be about this matchup. The card as a whole looks really sick though. Phone Post
