I get the reasons behind the fight, but its not a competitive match-up at all.
Liddell will beat Franklin if they fight 9/10 times.
Id rather do Franklin Vs. Shogun, Machida vs. T. Silva, Rampage v. Wanderlei, Rashad Vs. Forrest and let Chuck re-match Jardine, they are both coming off of losses. Thats basically the top ten right now all covered fighting each other, with sokoudjou being replaced by franklln.
Id even go for Machida v. Franklin 2... But Liddell just seems like overkill against Rich stylistically.
This is my favorite division by far
