Franklin vs. Le set to headline UFC on Fuel TV 6 in Macau | UFC News

By: Chris Taylor

Rich Franklin (29-6 MMA, 14-5 UFC) and Cung Le (8-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) will serve as the main event for UFC on FUEL TV 6 in Macau. UFC President Dana White announced the targeted headliner shortly after the post-fight press conference for UFC on FOX 4 in Los Angeles last night.

Franklin and Le had been scheduled to fight earlier this year at UFC 148, but that bout was scrapped so that Franklin could step in for an injured Vitor Belfort, and fight Wanderlei Silva at UFC 147. Franklin won that rematch with Wanderlei by unanimous decision.

The former Strikeforce middleweight champion, Cung Le, remained on the UFC 148 card and fought Patrick Cote. Le ended up defeating “The Predator” by unanimous decision that night, collecting his first UFC victory in the process.

UFC on FUEL TV 6 takes place November 10th at the Cotai Arena in the Venetian Macau Resort & Hotel. The main card will air live on FUEL TV.
