Tito retweeted that just a day before the big announcement. Could Tito have just gave away the main event?

Good co-main event, but bad main event. Both guys are coming off a loss so I hope this isn't the headliner.

This would be a great co-main event that could air on FOX if the other fight goes short.  If not then at least the Facebook stream gets an awesome main event.

Great business strategy.  Let's put an anticipated fight between two popular legends/former champs on a Facebook stream that will be viewed by 20 people.

I think it's a good main event from a business standpoint. Hardcore fans are going to watch regardless. Casual fans will watch because it's two big names in the sport. People tuning in for the first time will get a very good technical fight which is good for the sport. If the second fight is between a couple of solid featherweights or lightweights, it could be a great business move. Phone Post

Agreed with everyone else. This isn't a main event worthy fight. They would never have this fight main event a PPV, they would have it as a co-main. If this is the main event I will be terribly disappointed. Good fight, but not good enough.

I'm a fan of both, but I don't think using two of your older (and forgive me) declining fighters is the best start for the FOX broadcasts...

They are both still very popular with fans and recognizable.

Plus Rich is a perfect guy to put out to the Fox masses.
Clean cut, well spoken, great ambassador for the sport.

From a meaningful standpoint, it isnt really that important of a fight, but to casual fans (and the new fans they hope to attract with FOX) it is a good match up.

All speculation until 1:00pm though.

People need to stop thinking about it like the FOX fight is going to be a hardcore fan superfight.

Its far from that.

Its going to be a fight to sell MMA and the UFC to people who may not have otherwise watched it much before.

 Tito is probably one of the most recognizable faces in MMA, right next to Chuck Liddell. Being on The Apprentice pretty much guaranteed that he will be on the FOX fight.

I think that could be the undercard fight but not the main event, Dana white said its going to be a really big fight...Tito vs Franklin isnt a really big fight imo

not at this point anyway

I think the main fight on the FOX card is a title fight ? if possible...idk, but something BIGger
