Anderson Silva Embraces The Challenge of Fighting Rich Franklin
UFC 77 in Cincinnati, Ohio, is dubbed “Hostile Territory” for a reason: Former middleweight champion and hometown hero, Rich Franklin, will look to reclaim his 185-pound title from current titleholder, Anderson Silva. The October 20 showdown at the U.S. Bank Arena will be almost exactly one year to the day that “The Spider” crushed “Ace” en route to championship glory at UFC 64: “Unstoppable” on October 14, 2006.
