Rich Franklin vs. Wanderlei Silva In The Works For UFC 99 is reporting that former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin and former Pride superstar Wanderlei Silva will fight at UFC 99. It’s believed that the fight will take place at a catchweight in the vicinity of 195 lbs.

Franklin is coming off of a close loss to Dan Henderson at UFC 93, while Wanderlei Silva suffered a devastating knockout loss to Quinton Jackson at UFC 92. A catchweight makes sense for both fighters as Silva is looking to move to middleweight while Franklin wants to remain at light heavyweight.
