Henderson vs Franklin II At UFC 103?

I thought Henderson was getting another crack at Silva? Do you think anyone has much interest in seeing this rematch? I would rather have seen Franklin rematch with Wandy, I thought that was a closer fight.

    cant see bisping comin off any better than he did against hendo t be honest..
    wandy t well and truly knock ten bags of sh1te out of him imo..

    hendo v franklin 2- not too fussed... why they fightin at 205 tho? has franklin stepped up a weight permanently now?
    i know hendo fights at both, dint realise franklin had stepped up too..

    Franklin stepped up a weight after losing twice to A Silva.  His recent fights include at LHW Lutter, Hamill, Hendo, and W Silva at a catchweight fight.
     
    I think Franklin will do Hendo this time.

    If i was Hendo i'd be pissed, Bisping was told he'd get a shot at Silva if he beat Hendo, surely after beating Bisping in such a convincing fashion it should mean Hendo gets Silva.

    Never argue with an idiot, He'll drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Its a silly matchup really if its at 205lbs, Hendo is going for the 185 crown and Franklin is looking to move further up the ladder at 205 so there is no real risk-reward for either fighter. I thought Franklin took the first fight but only just and it was a good fight so i dont mind seeing another one.

    Dont get why UFC would want Henderson fluctuating between 185 and 205 like he has done a couple of times since coming back to UFC, the guy is 38 and surely weight cutting and then putting solid weight back on could have a negative effect.

    Maybe this means that the winner of Maia/Marquardt gets Silva first

    I suppose Henderson agreed to it or he wouldn't be fighting him. How about Hendo 1st middleweight and light heavy champ in UFC aswell as pride?

    more here:

    http://www.thesun.co.uk...-v-Wand-for-UFC-105.html

    That says it might be against Cote instead. That could be a better fight for Bisping. Wandy's chin has gone though so it's possible Bisping could beat him if he got lucky. I'm not sure how hard Bisping hits though considering his recent fights

    As for Franklin vs Henderson, that could be a good fight IMO

    I'm not that bothered about seeing Henderson against Silva again, Silva has Hendo's number
