If Cung Le (8-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) is able to fight at UFC on FUEL TV 6 in Macau, it'll be against fellow middleweight Rich Franklin (29-6 MMA, 14-5 UFC).

The fighters initially were slated to fight at UFC 148 until the bout was scrapped to make other matchups.

But if Le is healthy enough to fight at the November event, UFC president Dana White wants to pit him against former champion Franklin.

UFC on FUEL TV 6 takes place Nov. 10 at Cotai Arena, Venetian Macau Resort Hotel in the Chinese special administrative region. The event's main card airs on FUEL TV, and Le vs. Franklin likely would serve as the headliner.

"If he fights in China, he will fight Rich Franklin," White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Can't hate, neither guy is getting anywhere near gold so whatever I guess. I'll put my loot on Ace.

Its possible but I tend to think Franklin is the more complete fighter

I personally LOVE this match. Ace seems like a company man through and through, and Le is a bad ass. Hopefully they make this fight! I can see Uncle Dana chucking some cash to make this happen.

Franklin is a fan favorite and always puts on an exciting fight, and the same can be said for Le.

Good fight. I'm interested.

As am I. It was supposed to happen once before, I hope it finally happens this time

I felt like I heard this matchup before and they were suppose to fight before.

I'm a little more interested in it this time, after Franklin looked good last time out, but I expect a UD either way.

This would be a awesome Main Event on a free Fuel T.V. card and in China on top of that.It will be f**king crazy. Franklin is a fan favorite no matter where he fights and Le is the home town hero.(sort of) LOL Franklin and Le and should have no problem selling out this fight.

Le is the home town hero.(sort of)

More like not at all lol. Hes from Saigon, South Vietnam and he left there at age 3.

This should be an exciting fight. Franklin always puts on a good performance. Le as well. Le kicks so often and so hard his fights are never boring. I think Franklin takes it by decision. He has the better endurance and a solid striking game to kickbox with Le. I see Le's only chance being Franklin's chin. It is not necessarily a weak chin, I would just say he has a larger than average button. One well placed shot from Le could end the fight.

I like LE in this fight because Franklin won't Bltiz like Wand, and I think Le can find his range and snap the life out of Franklin with kicks. I think it all depends on who's the better that night, really interesting fight! imo

Le probably gives me another good avatar to use, but Franklin takes the unanimous decision.

The sport is only better when Rich succeeds......Please knock this C-Actor out with the D-Level kicks.....please!

Ace 2nd rd - - TKO
