UFC 103: Who's In It?

tyler griggsContributor IJuly 6, 2009

UFC 103 is currently without a main event. UFC 103 is being held in Dallas,TX on September 19 or the 26.

Currently the card has big names on it:

  • Josh Koscheck vs Frank Trigg
  • Mike Swick vs Martin Kampmann
  • Hermes Franca vs Tyson Griffin
  • Efrain Escudero vs Cole Miller.

The main event was rumored to feature Rich Franklin fighting Chuck Liddell, but is not happening says the UFC.

Liddell has said that he is going to take a year off "at least from being hit" to figure out what he is going to do. Liddell is coming off of yet another loss to the man fighting for the title at UFC 104, Mauricio Rua. Liddell is one of my heroes, but I think this time will be good for him to relax and plan for what he wants to do.

Franklin, on the other hand, is coming off of a win at a catch-weight of 195 lbs against the "Axe Murderer" Wanderlei Silva. This win was a good fight, but I believe that Silva was just tired. Supposedly, he had cut twelve pounds right before the weigh-ins of his fight at UFC 99. Previously, I said I would like to see Wanderlei vs Anderson, but not right now.

Josh Koscheck is also fighting after coming off of a loss to Paulo Thiago at UFC 95. He is fighting Frank Trigg. Hermes Franca is back, coming off of a win Marcus Aurelio. He's fighting Tyson Griffin who is also coming off of a win just back in April.

Fighters I would Like to see to fight Franklin as the main event, would be- Matt Hamill, Forrest Griffin but he's fighting Anderson Silva at UFC 102. I'm sure the UFC will find a great fight for Franklin, but I would like to see Hamill fight Franklin .

I end saying good luck to all of these men. Thanks for the reads guys.
