Although it hasn't been confirmed by UFC yet, there are reports that UFC will return to Ireland for UFC 93 on January 17. The event, to be held at the O2 Arena, could be headlined by Rich Franklin vs. either Chuck Liddell or Maurucio Rua.

I would love to see any of the fights mentioned. Hope Rua gets back in the ring soon. Lot of good match-ups are possible when his returns.

i personally would rather see rua vs franklin, most likely at 205...but am i the only one that thinks that rua could make 185?....some fights he looks like he could, but then in the grand prix he looked big! i dont know tho....but i think henderson handles franklin by the second rd, at any weight, thats no knock on rich, i just think that happens due to style matchup.....rua vs fanklin when be an all out action packed fight, just seems more exciting than the franklin vs hendo (but i would still LOVE to see that one)

I think Shogun could move down and wouldn't mind adding his depth to 185 him v silva would be great.
