That said, Rich Franklin will be off from the fight card too.
The Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs Rich Franklin match was set as a co-main event of UFC 133 on August 6 in Philadelphia. Unfortunately, the latter still has no opponent after three weeks’ notice. Hence, UFC came up with the decision to pull out the said match on the event. As a result, the middleweight showdown between Vitor Belfort and Yoshihiro Akiyama was flagged as the co-main event.
