Rich Franklin vs Wanderlei Silva full fight video higlights from UFC 147

Rich Franklin defeats Wanderlei Silva by unanimous decision in the main event of the UFC 147 fight card that went down last night (Sat., June 23, 2012) at the Estadio Jornalista Felipe Drumond in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. "Ace" largely worked the same game plan he used to to best "The Axe Murderer" three years ago, using his crisp striking and superior footwork to befuddle the Brazilian banger for much of the fight. Silva had a brief flurry in the second round that had Franklin dazed and confused -- he admitted later he couldn't remember rounds three or four -- but ultimately, the former math teacher from Cincinnati prevailed. Now where do they go from here? That's for you to decide, Maniacs.
