Rich Franklin is currently in Las Vegas to discuss a new contract with the UFC, and the first fight of the deal could be for a main-event bout at UFC 103.

The news comes from MMAjunkie.com's Dann Stupp, who posted the update in the Dayton Daily News MMA blog.

According to the report, Franklin, who has one fight remaining on his current deal, is meeting one-on-one with UFC president Dana White about the contract, which could be the final one of his career.

That would be an interesting matchup to see between Rich Franklin and Tito Ortiz. I think Rich could beat Tito as long as he doesn't get taken down too much. I believe he can beat Tito easily standing up.

UFC Quick Quote: Tito Ortiz ‘came to amends’ with Dana White — possible return in Fall 2009? at UFC blog for UFC news, results, videos, rumors, fights, pics and tickets — MMAmania.com

“I’m very thankful for Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta from the UFC and I’m glad that me and Dana (White) kind of got to brush each other off. We may not still like each other or whatever but we came to amends — which is awesome. I gotta thank Strikeforce for giving me an opportunity and I want to thank Affliction for giving me an opportunity.”

–Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and current Zuffa exile Tito Ortiz tells TapouT Radio that while he still won’t be exchanging Christmas cards with the UFC President, he and Dana White have patched things up after many years of back-and-forth squabbling. “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” has always had a amicable relationship with the Fertittas — is it possible that Lorenzo flew to Huntington Beach to reclaim the surgically repaired 205-pound star like his did last month with Mirko Cro Cop? And with UFC 103 still needing an opponent for rumored headliner Rich “Ace” Franklin, could they shock the world of MMA by pairing him up with a new and improved Ortiz?

It wouldn't surprise me......The UFC is probably the best money he is going to get, and no matter how much Dana doesn't like him he is still a big draw...

This would be a great matchup, two big names...would sell a lot for sure.

he probably will get a 5 fight deal, and main event in dallas
crazy that ace will be headlining his third event this year

It'd be a big draw and I'd love to see Ace drop tito with a liver kick but I just struggle to believe anything on sherdog that isn't posted somewhere else as well.
