Rich Franklin has returned to the middleweight division to pick up a second career win over Wanderlei Silva, but the former champion now has his sights set on much bigger things. Even at 38 years old, Franklin would like to make one last run at reclaiming his title, but he will first have to best another dangerous striker in former Strikeforce titleholder Cung Le.
The middleweight bout between Franklin and Le will serve as the feature attraction at UFC on Fuel TV 6, which will be the first UFC event ever held on Chinese soil.
In addition to the 185-pound main event, Saturday's event will also feature a surefire light heavyweight slugfest between UFC veteran Thiago Silva and the wild-punching Stanislav Nedkov.
Furthermore, welterweight standouts Dong Hyun Kim and Paulo Thiago will attempt to bounce back from disappointing losses, while Takanori Gomi tries to prove he still has something left in the tank against The Ultimate Fighter winner Mac Danzig.
Before Saturday's event, which will take place at the Cotai Arena in Macao, China, the fighters will hit the scales on Friday at 5 a.m. ET.
Video of the weigh-ins will be streamed live on the above video player. After the weigh-ins, stay tuned to Bleacher Report for all the latest on UFC on Fuel TV 6 and the rest of your MMA needs.
