If it happened they could give him one fight LW against Chuck since he fights at about 213lbs. (I know I'm dreaming, it wouldn't happen).. I just see that as a better fight than most of the UFC heavyweights vs Mirko .
Thanx for the update!
I watched inside the UFC last night and it had Franklin on, he said that he should be cleared to spare next week and then will start back training for his next fight. One interesting thing he said was that he has not watched the fight with Silva yet and doesn't plan to until he is ready to start training. I think that this is a great move by Rich. Why both letting it get you down while you are healing and relaxing, take your time off and enjoy it then when its time to train deal with it then with a clear vision of what went wrong.
From official Mirko's site : "Mirko off the NYE card!
It was confirmed today that Mirko won't be fighting at PRIDE's NYE event.
"I still can't kick like I want to. It's the best that we give more time to this injury to heal. I want to be in perfect shape for my next fights."
But there's one far more important question lately - in which promotion will Mirko fight in the future? The big decision was made and the official statement will follow soon.
