Tito Ortiz vs. Rich Franklin for Co-Main Event at UFC on FOX on November 12th

Former 205 pound champion, Tito Ortiz and former 185 pound champion, Rich Franklin will meet in a light heavyweight tilt at UFC on FOX in Anaheim, California on November 12th, 2011.

Ricardo “Demente” Abreu, Tito’s training partner, speaking to Tatame Magazine, said:

“Ortiz’s next fight will be against Rich Franklin, at UFC on FOX 1. He’s out of town travelling and I haven’t spoke with him for a couple days. As far as I know that’s the fight, but it’s not signed yet”.

Franklin hasn’t been seen since he was dominated by Forrest Griffin at UFC 126 in February. Ortiz finally got a win under his belt defeating Ryan Bader in July, only to lose to Rashad Evans the very next month.
