Word is that the UFC has offered Rich Franklin a nice chewy rebound fight in the form of fuckup Travis Lutter. The catch: they want the fight to happen in March when the UFC returns to Ohio. Lutter’s a pretty sweet opponent for Franklin, not because he’ll be a pushover but because there’s about a zero percent chance that Lutter will smash Franklin’s nose up again (although word is Rich has a buy 2 noses get 1 free coupon at his plastic surgeon’s).
The big question mark hovering over this match is because Rich has been busy Hollywooding it up filming a new movie called “Weapon” and apparently hasn’t been training for shit. I think everyone assumed Franklin was gonna take some time off to relax and refocus and pray that God strikes Anderson Silva with a lightning bolt, because there’s about an equal chance of that as there is for Silva to lose the belt in a UFC match.
