The UFC made it official on Wednesday morning.
â€œRich Franklin vs. Dan Henderson is a battle between two great former champions who are both looking to get another chance to wear a world title around their waist….Franklin is the former UFC Middleweight champion, and heâ€™s a dangerous striker with solid submission skills â€“ he also showed great takedown defense in his September destruction of powerful wrestler Matt Hamill. Dan Henderson is the former PRIDE Welterweight and Middleweight champion. Heâ€™s a world class wrestler, known for his great chin and his one punch knockout power.
