UFC 115 tickets went on sale this morning, but don’t worry about buying any: they’re already sold out.
The UFC finally settles the mystery surrounding UFC 115′s main event by officially announcing that Chuck Liddell will face Rich Franklin and not Tito Ortiz.
The “Phenom” is back. Sure, he’s 32 years old, 13 years in the fight game, and has three kids. It doesn’t matter. Vitor Belfort proved he is still phenomenal, knocking out UFC golden boy Rich Franklin at 3:02 of the first round of UFC 103.
We’re on our way to Dallas for UFC 103, but before we leave it’s time to give our predictions for the matches on the main card. I was at 3/5 in the top of the card for the last show – like many other people, I got surprised by Nogueira.
Rich Franklin is caught in an awkward limbo. One of the best fighters in the world at middleweight, Franklin has lost twice (and badly) to middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva.
Ten years after his blitzkrieg attack on Tank Abbott, Jon Hess, and the limits of anabolic steroids, fight fans and promoters are still looking for “the old” Vitor Belfort.
