    Chris Leben has always seemed to be Dana's saving grace. He has saved more cards than any fighter I can think of.

    Machida is coming off a win, isnt Franklin coming off a loss? that match up doesnt make sense if that is the case

    The Bader match-up makes the most sense to me, too bad Tito wan't still available.

    I'm guessing the Hamill/Gustafsson match will get scraped n Gustafsson will face Franklin

    Stephan Bonnar was one of the ideas to face Franklin in the first place, he should get the fight, or else it should be Ryan Bader

    Chris Leben is a MW and Franklin is fighting at LHW now, so why is he even on the list?

    @ Raze - Apparently, Leben offered to step in to fight Rashad on short notice, thus offering the possibilty that he is prepared to take a fight against a LHW on short notice.

    The same with Sonnen as well. Who has actually stated in the past that he had called out Franklin on many occasions. But Sonnen has not made this list probably because of his scheduled fight with Stann, I assume.

    Mousassi just fought and has no injuries. I would love to see him fight someone of Franklin's level , just to see if he really is top 5 in the world.

    Nobody is replacing Little Nog.

    UFC pulled Rich Franklin out of the event.

    Co main event is now Belfort vs Aikiyama

    Ebersole vs Hallman have been promoted to the PPV

    Machida or Shogun would be great fights! They would both be great stand up matches!
