It appears all the rumors are true. To some degree, that is.

Don't get too excited about a Tito Ortiz-Chuck Liddell fight at the end of Season 11 of "The Ultimate Fighter." Not happening.

Liddell will fight Rich Franklin at UFC 115 on June 12, 2010, as Vancouver makes it debut as a host city.

Rumors were flying around the Internets and the Twitters and the Facebooks a few weeks back that Ortiz left the show before filming was finished. This would seem to confirm those rumors. Of course, Liddell-Franklin is far less enticing than Liddell-Ortiz 3.

Here's the rest of the UFC 115 fight card . . . for now:
