Anderson Silva will return to the Octagon in just over a month, and the UFC has started posting some of the legendary fighter’s greatest hits…
Of course, one of them took place way back in 2006 (it’s crazy how time flies), when Silva took on Rich Franklin at UFC 64. At the time, Franklin was the reigning middleweight champ, and he was riding an eight fight winning streak. “Ace’ was also widely considered to be one of the best fighters on the planet.
Now, if you’ve never seen Silva-Franklin I, then you haven’t witnessed one of the more memorable, and historic bouts in Silva’s storied career. You can watch the scrap below.
Looking forward, Silva is set to face Nick Diaz on January 31st at UFC 183. The card will go down in Las Vegas, Nevada.
