    The way things are coming together it looks like UFC 103 is going to be the biggest card of the year. Its beating out UFC 100 in terms of tallent and fights.

    Dan Henderson vs Rich Franklin
    Cro Cop vs Dos Santos
    Swick vs Kampman - number one contenders match
    Effrain Escuedo vs Cole Miller
    Kos vs Trigg
    Griffin vs Franca
    Sherk vs Tibau

    I don't get all the hate the Hendo/Franklin fight is getting.

    While it may not make much sense for Hendo (He's gunning for the MW title, and I would have thought he's only 1 match away from another shot), it is certainly an intriguing match-up between two great fighters, whose last fight ended in a split decision...all the ingredients calling for a re-match are there.

    I'm looking forward to it.

    The fight I'm least excited about is Swick v. Kampmann...I can't quite put my finger on it, but for some reason neither fighter has won me over as a fan. Maybe it's because GSP has been dominating the division so decisively, nothing short of challenger displaying similar prowess over opposition will make me accept them as a legitimate challenger.

    I mean hendo doesnt have anything to lose if he doesnt win the fight since its at 205. Hes already up there in the MW rankings. What I dont understand is why didnt they set this fight up for 185, that way it would throw hendo into a title match. The fight makes a lot more sense at 185 then it does at 205

    A lot of really solid fights but nothing really spectacular.

    I didn't buy tickets to this card because I thought it sucked. 150 for the uppers is way too much.

    Ortiz vs. Franklin & Henderson vs. Belfort on deck for UFC 103?

    Drastic changes to UFC 103 appear to be underway.
    Adding fuel to the fire, a newly available fighter such as Tito Ortiz or Vitor Belfort could be seeing action in the Octagon on September 19th as UFC.com has recently removed the previously announced rematch between Rich Franklin and Dan Henderson scheduled to headline UFC 103 in Dallas, TX.

    The move was not only a surprise to fans expecting a second clash between the iconic fighters but apparently Franklin himself as well. Earlier today “Ace” posted the following message through Twitter:
    “I’ve heard the UFC pulled my fight off the website for 103. I don’t know why. They haven’t spoken to me about this and I assume the fight is still on.”
    Henderson has not yet responded on the matter via Twitter but assures people he ate some excellent Mako Shark tacos on Friday night.
    Whether the Team Quest icon and former UFC Middleweight Champion will face new opponents, each other, or anyone at all come UFC 103 remains up in the air at this moment.

    I don't see Tito on this card, I'm sure he'll milk his 'return to the octagon' until he's 100% :hsugh:

    Belfort on the other hand seems really game, and has a reason to fight since he's been training for Affliction (RIP).
