UFC 147 video trailer for 'Franklin vs Silva 2' on June 23 in Brazil

Take two.

Vitor Belfort's not so phenomenal hands ruined The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil's coaching conclusion, as he was scheduled to throw down against his rival and native countryman Wanderlei Silva at the UFC 147 event set for June 23, 2012, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

But never fear, "Replacement" Rich Franklin is here.

Indeed, "Ace" answered the call and left Cung Le in the dust to fly to South America to rematch "The Axe Murderer," a man he defeated back at UFC 99 back in June 2009. That decision was disputed at the time and now, three years later, the two get to settle up once and for all.

Even if it's not a fight UFC fans asked for.
