Just four days after Ultimate Fight Night, the UFC has another loaded card on tap for this evening on pay per view. There's a co-main event tonight with Rich
In the poker world, Ace is king. The same can said for the UFC Middleweight division. Rich “Ace” Franklin has been dominating since stepping foot into the octagon. He is undefeated in seven fights and gets better every time out. He will be facing possibly his toughest test of his career tonight live from the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
The title matches up Franklin with UFC newcomer Anderson “The Spider” Silva.
Silva is 1-0 in the UFC and won in dominating fashion over Ultimate Fighter Season 1 Chris Leban. The striking display he put on in that fight was very impressive. Leban, however is known for his defense and is nowhere near the class of rich Franklin.
Silva has fought all over the world and Rich agrees it will be his toughest test to date.
The champion’s skills are excellent. His all around game is top of the food chain. He usually isn’t tested on the ground because he likes to stand and bang. For some crazy reason his opposition will stand with him and he has been making them all pay.
Tonight’s fight probably won’t be much different. In my eyes this will be a fight that stays on their feet. Both fighters want it that way. I haven’t seen enough of Silva to think he can beat Rich and take away his belt. But that is why they fight the fights. Anything is possible.
The co-main event is for the vacant Lightweight title. Sean “The Muscle Shark” Sherk is taking on Ultimate Fighter Season 1 alum Kenny “KenFlo” Florian. Both guys have been impressive and deserve the chance to fight for the belt.
I see this fight being the opposite of the other main event. Sherk will want to go to the ground and overpower Kenny and work his ground and pound. Florian on the other hand will look to force a tap out using his awesome Jiu-Jitsu. This also will be an exciting fight and wouldn’t be surprised if it lasted a few rounds.
2 title fights on one card always make for a great evening of fights.
Here is the full fight card ...
