Franklin still expected to headline UFC 103

As Inside Fights first reported here on June 23, Rich Franklin is expected to take part in the UFC 103 card on September 19, 299 from Dallas.

Three opponents were given to Franklin last week and he’s been given the chance to pick his opponent. Franklin did not want to fight in September, but Zuffa is out of headliners for the September show and doesn’t expect any title holders to make a quick turn around and fight again.

The rumored UFC 103 card:

  • Rich Franklin vs. TBA
  • Junior Dos Santos vs. Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic
  • Martin Kampmann vs. Mike Swick
  • Josh Koscheck vs. Frank Trigg
  • Hermes Franca vs. Tyson Griffin
  • Sean Sherk vs. Gleison Tibau
  • Efrain Escudero vs. Cole Miller
  • Rafael dos Anjos vs. Matt Wiman
