A lightweight bout between Hermes Franca (19-7 MMA, 6-4 UFC) and Tyson Griffin (13-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) will take place in September at UFC 103.

Sources close to the fighters told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that bout agreements have not been signed but both competitors have verbally agreed to the fight.

The Sept. 19 fight will take place on the main card of the event, which airs live on pay-per-view from the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

I can promise you this fight won't be a dud. I respect the hell out of both these guys but in the end I see Tyson winning a UD. I think Tyson is going to want to keep it standing and outstrike him for 15 mins. What I like about Tyson is he's a wrestler, but he doesn't mind standing and exchanging. A lot of people make a huge deal over him not finishing fights but I think that's more of credit to a lot of fighters at 155 having solid chins and excellent cardio. Can't wait for this fight.
