    Former middleweight champion Rich Franklin will look to get back on the winning track against 185-pound winner of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 4, Travis Lutter, at UFC 82 on March 2 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.


    Dave Melter from WrestlingObserver.com confirmed the rumored bout in a recent print edition of his newsletter. In fact, it will serve as a co main event alongside the middleweight showdown between current division titleholder, Anderson Silva, and PRIDE FC Welterweight Champion, Dan Henderson.

    What do you guys think of Lutter? I know Anderson had two bum knees in their fight, but Travis did still do pretty well.

    If Lutter doesn't have problems cutting weight, I think he'll submit Franklin.

    The way the card is playing out right now he'll be on the un-televised card.

    No Chance at what? I think he has better wrestling than Franklin, and his JJ game is better too.

    Too bad Karo's ducking Fitch - that would be an awesome co-main event.

    So if Hendo and Franklin both win how long does it take for Dana to announce that Franlkin is getting another title shot at UFC 89 in Ohio?

    No Shit.

    I just want to see if they keep the same system going.. Franklin gets title shot, they put it in him hometown, he loses...get one win in a rebound fight, earns another title shot, loses, rinse repeat.

    I thought Hendo and Franklin said they wouldn't fight each other back when Rich was champ

    Karo was on InsideMMA and pretty much said he just needed to win one more fight to get a title shot, so he doesnt want to fight fitch for that fight cuz hes afraid he might lose.

    And ya, Gurgel has been a huge letdown in all his recent fights. Im over him.

    He says he might be fighting Thiago Alves. But i dont see how the UFC can give him a title shot without him fighting Fitch, Koscheck, or the loser of hughes/gsp. He's dreaming.
