Franklin vs Kampmann? Not yet

Rumors have been swirling that Martin Kampmann - fresh off his submission win over Miletich product Drew McFedries - is set to tangle with former middle weight champ Rich Franklin at UFC 72 in Ireland.  But Franklin's management says not so fast.  Courtesy Nokaut, this notable quote:

"Absolutely nothing has been confirmed regarding Rich's next fight," J.T. Stewart, Rich Franklin's media contact, told me Saturday in response to rumors of a Franklin versus Martin Kampmann main event at UFC 72 in Ireland June 16.  The matchup was reported Thursday, April 5 by Sherdog.com and is listed in the "Rumors" section at MMA Weekly.  "Rich is in Alaska and is not in contact with anyone," Stewart continued, "Nothing has been decided.  Period."
That's not a "no", but it's for sure not a yes.  Hold your horses, internet rumor starters.
