Dana White Hints At Potential Tito Ortiz vs. Rich Franklin Match-Up

Tito Ortiz’s next opponent could be Rich Franklin.

Dana White hinted at the potential match-up in a live UStream chat earlier today.

“I don’t know yet, still working on fights for Tito,” White said. “But we do like the idea of Tito vs. Rich Franklin.”

It’s unknown if that’s a match-up Tito would be interested in, but Franklin told MMA Weekly he would be open to it.

“The fans have talked about how they would be interested in that fight,” Franklin told about facing Ortiz. “It’s something the fans have talked about being an entertaining fight, and if it’s something the UFC wanted to put on, I’d be open to that.”

Dana didn’t elaborate any further or give any hints about when it could happen, but it seems like a pretty good fit for the UFC on FOX co-main event, no? Good match-up either way.
