UFC Light Heavyweight Rich Franklin

After watching Timothy Bradley serve up an upset special over Manny Pacquiao on Saturday, MMA fans immediately wanted to know how they could score a quick buck. The UFC’s next pay-per-view broadcast takes place June 23rd and features a rematch between Rich Franklin (Pictured) and Wanderlei Silva.

Franklin is nearly a 2-to-1 odds-on favorite to score his second win over “The Axe Murderer.” Silva, meanwhile, checks in just behind as a +145 underdog.

The former middleweight champion hung a close unanimous decision win over Silva at UFC 99 in June 2009.

“UFC 147: Silva vs. Franklin II” takes place inside Mineirinho Arena in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil.
