Former UFC middleweight champion, Rich “Ace” Franklin will make the move to light heavyweight to take on TUF veteran Matt Hamill at UFC 88 on September 6 from the Phillips Arena in Atlanta, Ga, according to MMARated.
Franklin is coming off a solid win over Travis Lutter at UFC 83 in Montreal. A move back to his old wight class was rumored after he was completely overwhelmed by the UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva for the second time.
Matt Hamil is also coming off a win over Tim Boetsch at UFC Fight Night 13 this past April.
