UFC 64 Silva Defeats Franklin, New UFC Middleweight Champion

UFC 64 Rich Franklin vs Anderson Silva

Rich Franklin (185 lbs) vs. Anderson Silva (185 lbs)
What a battle it was at UFC 63 in Las Vegas, Rich Franklin gets TKOed by Anderson Silva in the first round. I know Silva was dangerous in the clinch, but I didn’t think he would dominate Rich Franklin as he did. Silva blew through Franklin like he did with Chris Leibman. Who is next, This guy is going to be hard to beat. You have to wonder how this guy does on the ground. Everyone is going to try to take Silva down to the ground right away.

Anderson Silva becomes the new UFC middleweight champion
