September's UFC 103 card is in need of a main event, but the Dallas event won't feature a rumored (and heavily speculated) bout between Rich Franklin and recently retired former UFC light heavyweight Chuck Liddell.

That's the word from MMAjunkie.com's Dann Stupp, who gives an update on Franklin in today's "MMA Insider" column in the Dayton Daily News.

According to the report, UFC officials have contacted Franklin with a handful of potential opponents' names for the Sept. 19 card, but Liddell isn't one of them.

I'm thinking its gotta be Luiz Cane, cause everyone above Cane is tied up
also Jon Jones depending how easily he gets through Obrien could be another option???

Eliot Marshall, Ryan Bader, and soszynski are all also options

This is a good thing imo. I'm not interested in seeing Chuck Vs Rich.
