Franklin vs. Hamill at UFC 88

Rich-franklin_medium

According to MMARated:

MMARated.com has learned that Rich Franklin will face Matt Hamill at UFC 88 at the Phillips Arena in Atlanta, GA on September 6, 2008. This fight will mark Franklin's return to the 205 lbs division.

MMAJunkie.com first reported that Franklin was considering moving up to the light heavyweight division yesterday. Today, MMARated.com was able to confirm the switch as well as his opponent.

Seems like a fairly easy showcase fight for Rich.  Hamill is a fairly one-dimensional fighter who has cardio issues.  He might be able to take the first round with his wrestling, but as the fight goes on, I expect Rich to be able to keep it standing and dominating with strikes.
