Rich Franklin has posted the following on his official website, RichFranklin.com, disputing reports that he will be fighting in March at UFC 82 in Columbus, Ohio:
I am told there are rumors of me fighting multiple people in March. I have not signed for a fight in March. I don’t believe that I am allowed to fight more than once in a night. I hope this clears up any confusion. I have not signed to fight anyone in March, or any other month.
Rumors surfaced yesterday indicating Franklin had agreed to take on Travis Lutter at UFC 82.
