UFC 147: Silva vs Franklin II Live Odds

UFC 147: Silva vs. Franklin II was a mixed martial arts event to be held by Ultimate Fighting Championship. The event took place on June 23, 2012 at Estádio Jornalista Felipe Drumond in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

The finals in the featherweight and middleweight tournaments of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil were held on this card. Daniel Sarafian was originally scheduled to compete in the Middleweight finals, but pulled out due to injury.

He was replaced by semifinalist Sergio Moraes. Renee Forte, a Middleweight for Team Wanderlei, was scheduled to fight Moraes, but was removed from the card when Moraes was enlisted to fill in for Sarafian. UFC Officials have promised Forte a fight on a future UFC card.

Rich Franklin vs Wanderlei Silva:

Round 5: Silva is throwing more this round than in the previous two, but it’s still Franklin looking the fresher, keeping the Brazilian on the end of his jab. Good footwork and head movement from Franklin down the stretch is keeping him out of any serious trouble from Silva’s sporadic power punches.

The jab of Franklin is working well, too, further bloodying the bridge of Wanderlei’s nose and leaving Silva no option but to come forward continually and push the pace. Silva lands a right hand and Franklin wheels away, prompting Silva to wave him on. Another right from Silva and Franklin keeps backpedaling, flicking out jabs as he goes.

Silva is still giving chase at the final horn, pinning Franklin against the fence. Franklin gets the final word, knocking Silva to the ground with a left hand in the last exchange. The two veterans of the sport grin and embrace at the end of the fight while the Brazilian crowd explodes.

Official Result: All three judges score the bout 49-46 for the winner by unanimous decision, Rich “Ace” Franklin.
