Looks like ex-PRIDE smasher Wanderlei Silva is standing in the shadow of former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 185-pound titleholder Rich Franklin.

Literally.

The two middleweight veterans, who meet in a catchweight bout of 190-pounds this weekend (June 23, 2012) at the UFC 147 pay-per-view (PPV) event from the Estadio Jornalista Felipe Drumond in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, went nose-to-nose at the conclusion of today's pre-fight press conference.

You can watch the full video replay right here.

Also facing off for the meanest mug in the game was grappling phenom Fabricio Werdum and Chicago cop Mike Russow. You can catch their not-so-friendly eye contact after the jump.
