UFC 147: "Silva vs. Franklin 2" took place last night (Sat., June 23, 2012) from the Mineirinho Arena in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, featuring Rich Franklin winning a unanimous decision over Wanderlei Silva in the main event of the evening.

Just like three years ago in the first fight.

Fabricio Werdum knocked out Mike Russow in the first round of their heavyweight battle before "Vai Cavalo" promptly stated his case for a rematch against Junior dos Santos. Perhaps he should get it ... in another fight or two, at least.

Other action on the card saw the crowning of the first two Ultimate Fighters from the first season exclusive to Brazil, as Rony Mariano Bezerra won a decision over Godofredo Pepey while Cezar Ferreira did the same over Sergio Moraes.

Capping off the main card, Hacran Dias made a statement in his Octagon debut by taking out Yuri Alcantara.
