We may have lost Vitor Belfort from the match-up, but we’ve gained another former champ in Rich “Ace” Franklin. In a rematch dating back to UFC 99 in 2009, Wanderlei Silva and Rich Franklin put on a war that would be remembered as a classic. Come June 23 UFC 147 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, the two will once again throw down, however this time in Silva’s home country.
Also featured as the co-headline on the card is a match-up between Fabricio Werdum and Mike Russow. Check back with us June 23 for full fight results of UFC 147: Franklin vs. Silva II, as we will be updating live.
