"Ive heard the ufc pulled my fight off the website for 103. I dont kno y. They hvnt spoken to me @ this, n i assume the fight is still on."

Link to Rich's Twitter

Personally, i'm hoping they go in another direction with both of these guys. Maybe Tito or some of the Affliction guys can make for better match ups at this point.

This fight didnt make any sense anyway. Maybe this will all get cleared up after the press conf. on the 31st

Those matchups would be sweet but
Hendo vs tito
Franklin vs belfort
Would seem better stiker vs stiker and 2 GnP guys

First off, SpiderSilva, you need to change that "Soon to be 30-2" Barnett theme you got going, lol..j/k

And I bet you it'll be RIch/Tito. That would be by far the biggest Draw of the possibilities that are being discussed in this thread. That being said, i'd LOVE to see Hendo/Vitor as well. Hell, Throw them both on there and save Miller/Escudero for a fight night, where it probably belongs anyway.

that would be nice, HOWEVER Hendo vs Belfort makes more sense becuase it is a great match up and it keeps Hendo at 185 and Tito vs Franklin is also a great fight and keeps Franklin at 205. that way its a win, win for everybody.

I hope it's Franklin vs Tito. I really want to see this matchup, I think it's would be a great fight and it's a pretty good test for Rich at 205. Hopefully, Dana White makes an announcement about this on July 31st. Man, I can't wait for that day he said "big things are coming".

i didnt know that there was a website for UFC's anymore, if he means the Webpage on UFC.com, i never even saw Him on the card for 103 , they said it in a article, but i looked every day for on the Card to see Rich vs Dan , but it was never on there, they dont ever have Cro Cop on there, i dont know mabye my computers is f'ing up, but i hope they change it, dont get me wrong i would love for them to fight again but not right now
maybe Rich vs. Tito or Dan vs. Vitor , haha or both!!! have a 7 fight main card!!!!

I hope they keep Hendo at MW. Any of the mentioned match ups sound good.

Spidersilva should change that avatar to Josh "The Affliction Assasin" Barnett

I would love for them to put Tito in against somebody he would get abslolutely crushed by, especially at 103 cuz i'm goin. What better for my first live UFC than to see Tito get beat.

Is anybody else drooling about the possible matches the UFC could put together if they acquire some of Affliction's fighters?

I would like Mousassi/Franklin- Babalu/Tito, and Hendo /Belfort myself. Add 2 of these fights to the card and its great to me.

Maybe I missed something, but did Ttio come back to the UFC ???
I would like to see Franklin get a title shot at Machida, if not now, very soon.

Just to make sure, u do know that Machida handed Franklin his very 1st loss, and destroyed him the entire fight?

Off-topic...but Franklin's a teacher...it pains me to read this headline...even if it *is* a Twitter post.

Yeah, but he taught home economics so I wouldn't get too bent out of shape about it. While he can't use a proper contraction; he can bake a brownie like a mother F'r.

I'm so glad that I wasn't the only one that thought this. I had to check the link because I expected Mr Teacher to at least use some form of grammar or spelling or... something. Really sad (meant in a relative way, obviously it isn't a huge dis on him or as sad as murder etc, just that at teacher of any kind would write like this)

Fortunately some of the matches we've wanted to see at LHW and MW might happen because of this.
