Ever since their epic first meeting at UFC 99 in 2009, Wanderlei Silva has sought redemption against former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin, eager to even the score.

On June 23, in Silva’s home country of Brazil, the two legendary powerhouses will meet again in a UFC 147 main event guaranteed to produce some of the most explosive fistic fireworks seen in years. Plus, Brazilian grappling legend Fabricio Werdum looks to follow-up his Fight of the Night win over Roy Nelson against tough Chicago heavyweight Mike Russow, who is unbeaten in four UFC bouts, and the first winners of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil are crowned.
