Frankin Doesn't Have To Dream About Liddell Fight Anymore

0

Since Rich Franklin has moved up in weight to the 205lb division it looks like it has opened the door to certain fights he's thought about in the passed:

“I always thought about [fighting Liddell]. I wondered what it would be like to fight this person or that person, but I never thought the fight would materialize because I was a 185-pounder, he was a 205-pounder. Both weight classes at the time when we were champions had enough contenders in them that you didn't have to worry about who you were going to fight next to defend your title. Neither one of us needed to … Chuck's already a UFC Hall of Famer and UFC legend. He's got a who's who of victories. Of course recently he's had a little bit of a rougher road, but it's Chuck Liddell.”
