MMA Video: UFC 147 Silva vs. Franklin 2 Trailer

| by

It started out as Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen 2, but injuries and forced rescheduling now see the UFC 147 main event taking place at a catchweight of 190lbs between MMA veterans Wanderlei Silva and Rich Franklin. The two fighters engaged in a Fight of the Night-earning performance at UFC 99 back in 2009 (a fight that was also contested at a catchweight) and will revisit that bout now that Silva's original opponent, Vitor Belfort, was forced out of the fight with injury. UFC 147 will take place on June 23 at the Mineirinho Stadium in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Check out the video preview for the event below.
