Chuck Liddell Vs. Rich Franklin Set For UFC 115 In Vancouver


Despite a couple months of speculation, the rumors, the denials, the back-peddling, and the tweets, Tito Ortiz has officially been removed from the main event of UFC 115 against Chuck Liddell when the UFC makes it's Vancouver debut on June 12th.

Fear not though, a bout that some(most) may find more interesting has come to frutition. “The Iceman” will take on Rich Franklin at the conclusion of TUF 11.

This may explain the wall poster of Franklin taking the place of Ortiz in the TUF gym. Now the question, what happens on TUF to change the bout. We'll have to tune to find out.

In the meantime, here is the poster for UFC 115:
