A day after the Ultimate Fighting Championship bumped a Tyson Griffin (13-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) vs. Hermes Franca (19-7 MMA, 6-4 UFC) bout to the preliminary card, the organization has returned the lightweight matchup to the UFC 103 main card.

I personally disagree with this decision, I would rather see what should be an entertaining back and forth fight between Escudero and Miller then what I think is gonna be a onesided wrestling match with Griffin and Franca.

Tyson deserves to be on the main card though, no getting around that. Im just really suprised they're putting a TUF winner in the prelims for his first fight.

You guys are acting like he doesn't get fight of the night everytime he steps in there. Guess what? He does.

Hopefully theres a definitive finish somewhere on the card, and we're able to watch Efrain vs Cole as well.

Tyson Griffin is taking home another Unanimous Decision win... is he taking home another Fight of the Night award as well?

this had to happen. it was ridiculous to have escudero/miller on the main card while griffin/franca was on the prelim. good move ufc brass!

If you think about it. You have two proved vets with Griffin/Franca.
Didnt griffin stand and trade with dos anjos? I think he did.
Also remember franca threw those crazy knees against sherk when he shot in on him.

So this could be a FOTN, if they stand and trade with francas crazy strikes and griffin improving stand up. But dont get me wrong Miller/Efrain should be entertaining aswell.

would rather see the Miller fight but I'm hoping for a couple of early finishes so we get to see both

I'm glad they put Griffin vs Franca on the main card. I really want to see this fight and both of them deserve to be on the main card. Escudero vs Miller also is a good fight and I would love to see that fight too. Hopefully, we get to see both but if not I'm okay with just Griffin vs Franca.

I like the decision, franca vs. griffin has a lot more stake in the lw division at this time than cole vs. efrain.
