After last night’s outing on FX, the UFC was back with Arianny Celeste and a PPV in tow. Though UFC 147 may not have been a star-studded card, tonight’s effort from the organization in Brazil was packed with highlights set to the backdrop of an animated collection of fans from start to finish.
Headlined by iconic middleweights Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva meeting for the second time, the show also featured talented heavyweights Fabricio Werdum-Mike Russow going at it in addition to the finals from the first international season of the Ultimate Fighter.
The main event was a match-up for the ages, nearly seeing Franklin finished in the second round only to show only of the greatest displays of heart in recent years by battling back to earn a Unanimous Decision win. The victory improved Franklin’s record to 29-6 but more important cemented him among the upper-echelon of all-time greats in the sport.
