After a great night of fights at UFC 147, the middleweight divisional rankings remain pretty much the same.
They might have changed a tad had Rich Franklin really committed to a charge in the division, but for now we are still not 100 percent sure which way he will go.
Wanderlei Silva is still probably the most exciting fighter in the division, and while it looks as if he is improving, he is still outside of the top 10—for now. Had he more gas in the tank, he could have pressed the advantage in Round 3 and perhaps staged a coup, but things didn’t work out that way.
Now, the world looks toward UFC 148 and what is perhaps the most anticipated bout in the last two years: Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen II.
