Anderson Silva vs. Rich Franklin full fight video: 'The Spider' destroys 'Ace' at UFC 64 to win middleweight strap

Wow. That was one helluva an ass whooping courtesy of Anderson Silva, who stripped Rich Franklin of the middleweight crown in what was "The Spider's" second fight under the ZUFFA banner. In fact, his UFC 64 beatdown would start a 185-pound title reign that would last nearly seven years. That's something to keep in mind as the promotion releases a handful of free fight videos (like this one) to get fans hyped for Silva's return at UFC 183 against the crafty stylings of fellow longtime puncher Nick Diaz.
