The middleweight clash between Rich Franklin and Travis Lutter has been rescheduled for the Bell Centre at UFC 84 in Montreal, Canada, on April 19, according to FightNetwork.com.

“Ace” and “The Serial Killer” were supposed to go at it at UFC 82: “Pride of a Champion” on March 1. However, Franklin had to undergo knee surgery to repair an injured MCL in his knee.

Both fighters are coming off of losses in their most recent bouts against UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva.

“The Spider” submitted Lutter at UFC 67: “All or Nothing” back in February 2007 — it was his only fight that year. That’s because Lutter has been on the shelf recovering from a chronic neck injury.

Franklin lost the rematch to Silva at UFC 77: “Hostile Territory” via second round technical knockout in a fight that wasn’t really close. In addition to the knee injury, there are also reports that his father just passed away prematurely this week from an unexpected heart attack.

Hopefully the remainder of 2008 for Franklin gets much better.

UFC 84 is the first-ever event for the promotion north of the U.S. border and is expected to feature the welterweight championship bout between 170-pound titleholder, Matt Serra, and interim belt winner, Georges St. Pierre.

In addition, Canadian fighters such as Patrick Cote, Jeff Joslin, Jason MacDonald and Sam Stout are expected to compete on the card.
