Actually it would be to late, they would just have had to offer Franlin the fight as is and hope he accepted at which point he would receive 1/2 Belfort's purse. Franklin would hve the option to refuse but that I'm aware of no fighter has and Franklin surely would not have let the UFC or the fans down that way.
