Upon return Rich Franklin would face Forrest Griffin or Tito Ortiz

Former UFC middleweight champion, Rich Franklin has been speaking about his options once he returns from the broken arm sustained during his fight with Chuck Liddell, explaining the fans would like to see him fight either Forrest Griffin or Tito Ortiz and if Dana White is fine with that so is he.

Franklin, speaking via MMATorch.com, said:

“I’ve heard the fans talk about Forrest [Griffin] and I, I’ve heard the fans talk about Tito [Ortiz] and I. I know there’s some fan interest out there for some particular fights, and I know that Dana is particularly interested in building fights that fans want to see, so if those guys are healthy at the time that I’m ready to return and that’s a fight he wants to put on then yeah, I’m not going to say no to something like that.”
