Following the demise of Affliction Entertainment, Vitor Belfort (16-8 MMA, 7-4 UFC) has signed with the UFC, replaced Dan Henderson (25-7 MMA, 5-2 UFC) and will fight Rich Franklin (25-4 MMA, 12-3 UFC) in the main event of UFC 103.

I'm not getting these fights there putting Rich Franklin in. They say he's a 205er. Then the keep putting him in there with 185ers. What division will this fight be fought at. Because the last I saw and the last Vitor Belfort fought was at 185. I also thought he wouldn't move up to fight Mosasui at 205. This whole thing is confusing me. But really good main event.

WAR RICH FRANKLIN!!!

I'm pretty sure I read this fight will be at 205.

This is much much better than the Hendo rematch.

Super stoked on this fight! So many good fights to come from this. I hope he moves back down to 185 though.

Vitor seemed to look really good at 185.

way better than Henderson vs. Franklin/Belfort II

I'm rooting for Vitor in this one.

I'm not happy about this at all. Vitor was on fire at 185 and now he has to go back to 205.

Kinda wish they would have let Vitor stay at MW... But have to agree that this is muuuuch better than the Hendo rematch...

To me this is very disappointing, like it was said earlier why is Rich fighting MWs. Vitor should be facing Hendo winner gets title shot. Rich should be fighting a 205er scrap Jardine/Silva fight and put against one of them preferably Silva or even TUF Winner Ryan Bader..
