UFC 147 on June 23 will feature a bout between two aging greats looking to make one last run at a title before their careers come to an end. While the bout will take place at a catchweight, Rich Franklin is planning a return to the middleweight division, which he will look to kick off with a win over former Pride champion Wanderlei Silva.

In heavyweight action, Fabricio Werdum will look to take one step closer to a rematch with Junior dos Santos by picking up a win over Mike Russow. Russow has looked like a potential contender at times, but he won an uneventful fight against John Olav Einemo in his last appearance.

The event will also feature the finals of the two tournaments from TUF's first Brazilian season. In the final featherweight bout, Godofredo de Oliveira will meet Rony Mariano Bezerra, while Cezar Ferreira will meet Sergio Moraes in the last 185-pound matchup.

As has been the case since the beginning of the reality series, the winners of the two TUF finals will earn guaranteed contracts with the UFC, while the losers will probably be given another opportunity inside the Octagon, but they will have much less job security.

Before Saturday's event, the fighters will hit the scales at Revel Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., on Friday, June 22 at 3 p.m. ET. Video of the weigh-ins will be streamed live on the above video player.
