Finally, mystery solved. Despite all the public denials from Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz and Dana White, Sherdog had it right all along. Chuck Liddell and Rich Franklin will headline UFC 115 in Vancouver. I guess that means Tito Ortiz leaves TUF 11 midseason after all. Now the only question is why?
By the way, even though Dana White tweeted that Jon Fitch vs. Thiago Alves II was rescheduled for UFC 115 in Vancouver, that match-up is not among the five fights listed for the televised card on UFC.com. There’s no way they stick that fight in the prelims, so it could mean it’s moving to a different card.
Update: MMA Junkie is reporting the UFC is merely waiting on Thiago Alves’ medical clearance before they make the Fitch-Alves fight official for UFC 115.
