UFC 147 is just around the bend. Set to hit PPV on June 23 from Brazil with the rematch virtually no one asked for Wanderlei Silva vs. Rich Franklin.
But the card itself is still worth your money.
Sure, Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen was moved to UFC 148. Vitor Belfort got injured. Jose Aldo did not end up defending his championship. And a myriad of other possibilities never worked out, but the show must go on.
Silva will look to settle the score with Franklin and grab consecutive wins for the first time since 2005-2006 in PRIDE. Franklin comes in to save the UFC once again while seeking to remove the discussion about their first close fight with a decisive victory.
While this will not be the stadium show everyone anticipated it still has entertainment value, and I will tell you why you should plop down the money to order the show.
