More Fights Rumored For UFC 90 “Silva vs. Cote”

Sherdog is reporting, Hermes Franca has confirmed he will fight American Top Team’s Gleison Tibau at UFC 90 on Oct. 25 from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL.

Franca:

“It was just great to be back in the UFC….It was a crazy year. I fought against a tough opponent, and I thought I did well. I have no excuses.”

“Gleison’s a friend of mine….I just saw him last week. We shook hands, and I wished him luck.”

MMAWeekly is reporting, Melvin Guillard will take on Miletich trained fighter Spencer Fisher at UFC 90.

Pat Miletich:

“Spencer has no reason to fight that guy….I don’t think Melvin’s earned the right to fight him yet. I think Spencer should be fighting somebody where he’s got something to gain.”

“Spencer obviously would be the favored guy….Melvin’s a dangerous kid, but I don’t think Melvin’s a polished fighter at Spencer’s level.”

Also rumored its the lightweight superfight between Sean Sherk and Tyson Griffin.
