Unlikely adversaries Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva will run back their first encounter that took place inside the Octagon nearly three years ago to the day in the main event of the evening; however, things got started a little early this afternoon when these two 190-pound mixed martial arts (MMA) veterans went nose-to-nose after tipping the scale for tomorrow night's headliner.
It's (almost) go time.
