The UFC announced today that a rematch between Rich “Ace” Franklin (25-4) and Dan Henderson (25-7) will be the main event for UFC 103 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, on September 19th.
The first bout between the two was a light heavyweight fight in the main event at UFC 93 held this past January in Dublin, Ireland, that saw Henderson come away with a split decision victory. One judge scored the fight 30-27 in favor of Franklin, while the other two judges had it 29-28 in favor of Henderson.
Both fighters have fought once since their first meeting, with Franklin defeating Wanderlei Silva in a catch weight fight of 195 lbs. at UFC 99 by unanimous decision, and Henderson beating Michael Bisping with a second round knockout at UFC 100.
