Wanderlei “The Axe Murderer” Silva gave it all against Rich Franklin at UFC 99 this past weekend. Dana White announced this main event bout as the “Fight of the Night” during the post-fight press conference. Even though Silva lost via a unanimous decision, Silva felt that he was still the better fighter and wants to prove this by having a rematch against Franklin in the near future.
Snip from Silva himself:
“The show was incredible. It’s amazing, It’s unbelievable. It’s our first show here and sold out. A lot of people. It was incredible man. This crowd, I don’t know how many people standing … The ground started to shake. It’s unbelievable … Please, I want a rematch. I know it’s the judges opinion, but I’m thinking I won. It was fight of the night. I want a rematch.”
