If I could sum up the UFC 147 main event in one sentence - an entertaining tilt between two of the promotion's most respected fighters.

The fight had absolutely no title ramifications whatsoever - both fighters are in the twilights of their careers, and neither fighter will ever be fighting for a title again. It was an entertaining fight between two of the promotion's most bankable stars.

The fight between Franklin and Silva came together after Vitor Belfort was forced to pull out of his scheduled fight against Wanderlei Silva. Silva and Belfort were the two coaches on The Ultimate Fighter Brazil, and their UFC 147 tilt was supposed to mark the conclusion of the season. Instead, Belfort pulled out and ever dependable Rich Franklin stepped in.

Franklin ended up winning by unanimous decision, which was the same result as their UFC 99 clash. The only difference was that the UFC 147 fight was a five round affair.

Silva had a couple of flashes of brilliance in this fight, and was awfully close to pulling off the upset at the end of the second round. The hometown fans were on their feet, but there would be no surprise finishes tonight - Franklin recovered and ended up pulling out the victory.

In the end, the UFC had a filled and raucous arena in Brazil and a number of crowd-pleasing fights. While the event will likely do terrible numbers in terms of PPVs, the fans in Brazil walked away fairly happy, and the UFC gets to look forward to its blockbuster UFC 148: Silva vs Sonnen II event in just a couple of weeks.
