UFC 115 is set for this Saturday night from General Motors Place in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. It will be the UFC's first visit to Vancouver, where the event sold out in less than thirty minutes, which set a record for the swiftest sell-out in the promotion's history. The pay-per-view event starts at 10 p.m. EST and features UFC stalwarts Chuck Liddell (21-7-0) and Rich Franklin (27-5-0, 1 NC) in a main event showdown.
Franklin fills in for Tito Ortiz, who was slated to fight Liddell after they served as opposing coaches on the recent season of "The Ultimate Fighter." A neck injury forced Ortiz to the sidelines, and now Franklin and Liddell, both wildly popular with fight fans, face each other in a bout where both men need a win to solidify their futures inside the Octagon.
The rest of the card is littered with quality bouts. Mirko Cro Cop (26-7-2, 1 NC) squares off against Pat Barry (5-1-0) in a heavyweight battle, while Paulo Thiago (13-1-0) faces Martin Kampmann in a welterweight bout that will leave one fighter a title contender. Rounding out the main card is Ben Rothwell (30-7-0) vs. Gilbert Yvel (36-14-1, 1 NC) and Carlos Condit (24-5-0) vs. Rory MacDonald (10-0-0).
