With the UFC planning another card in Ohio for March 1, 2008, it looks like Rich Franklin may be making another appearance in the Octagon in his home state. MMAJunkie is reporting that Franklin has recently inked a new six-fight deal with the UFC, and is considering a fight offer that would put him in a the Octagon with Travis Lutter.
Franklin has been a little tied up with shooting a film called “Weapon,” co-starring with Tiffany Amber Thiessen, since his TKO-loss against middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
Lutter also suffered his last loss to Anderson Silva back in February of this year at UFC 67. Lutter was coming off a win for TUF 4: The Comeback, and failed to make weight at his promised title-shot.As more UFC 82 developments unfold, we will make sure to bring you the news.
