Former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin has left a message at RichFranklin.com in which he denies reports that he’s signed a contract to fight on March 1 at UFC 82 in Columbus, Ohio:
I am told there are rumors of me fighting multiple people in March. I have not signed for a fight in March. I don’t believe that I am allowed to fight more than once in a night. I hope this clears up any confusion. I have not signed to fight anyone in March, or any other month.
The reports stated that a match was officially made for the UFC 82 card that would pit Franklin against Travis Lutter.
