Say it ain't so Dana!
ATO has learned this morning through a source close to the UFC that the rematch between Rich Franklin and Dan Henderson may be scrapped from UFC 103 for a better main event. The fight is no longer listed on UFC.com.
Dan Henderson won a split decision over “Ace” in Dublin, Ireland at UFC 93. The win propelled Hendo onto The Ultimate Fighter and he made the most of his opportunity by knocking out Michael Bisping at UFC 100.
Franklin rebounded from the loss by defeating Wanderlei Silva at UFC 99 in Cologne, Germany via unanimous decision.
Both men have expressed an interest in fighting for a belt. Franklin wants a shot at Lyoto Machida, the first man to defeat him and Henderson has stated he wants to rematch Anderson Silva.
