Rich Franklin vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira Booked For UFC 133

Both Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Rich Franklin need wins, but on August 6 only one of them will get it.

The UFC announced today that Franklin and Lil’ Nog will meet in Philly at UFC 133.

“Verbal agreements are in for what should be an amazing fight as former Pride superstar Rogerio ‘Minotoro’ Nogueira will take on former UFC World Middleweight Champion Rich ‘Ace’ Franklin in a light heavyweight bout,” said UFC president Dana White.

Strikes me as a battle of relevancy. Thoughts?
