For fans of mixed martial arts, this past week has been a slow crawl of steadily rising anticipation for tonight's "Silva vs. Franklin 2" event, going down at the Estádio Jornalista Felipe Drumond in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
UFC 147 will feature a hugely overhauled card headlined by a rematch between native hero Wanderlei Silva and catchweight superstar Rich Franklin. Also scheduled for the card is a heavyweight title pitting Fabricio Werdum vs. Mike Russow.
Plus, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil finals.
