Rich Franklin may face Forrest Griffin at UFC 127

As reported by MMA Junkie, the UFC is looking to Rich Franklin and Forrest Griffin square off in the semi-main event of next year’s Superbowl weekend show, UFC 127: Silva vs. Belfort. This would be Franklin’s return fight from the broken arm he suffered en route to beating Chuck Liddell at UFC 115, while Forrest Griffin has been away from the Octagon since November 2009 after suffering a shoulder injury in the run-up to his match with Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
