UFC 99 Video | Rich Franklin vs Wanderlei SilvaCategory: MMA
In the main event of UFC 99: The Comeback, former UFC middleweight champion Rich “Ace” Franklin defeated Wanderlei “The Axe Murderer” Silva via unanimous decision in a very exhaustive 3-round bout of 5 minutes each.
Franklin got the first 2 rounds in his favor by fighting methodically and utilizing his speed and reach to keep Silva at bay. He was already leading in the judge’s scorecards after two. In the 3rd round, Silva was more active and unleashed a flurry of punches in a last ditch attempt to win via knock-out. But Franklin survived it and managed to get Silva for a takedown. That’s all he need. If not for that and the fight was extended for 30 seconds more, The Axe Murderer might get the KO.
The German fans in attendance loved the action showed by the two fighters and it was awarded “Fight of the Night”.
