UFC 147 will have its main card air live on PPV at 10PM ET. The bouts will be held in the Mineirhnho Gymnasium in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

UFC Middleweight Bout – Rich Franklin (28-6) vs. Wanderlei Silva (34-11-1)

This fight should be a slug fest. Franklin won the first encounter but I like the underdog Silva in the rematch. His chin isn’t real strong and the possible for a KO is there, but the same can be said for Franklin. Given this fight is in Brazil, I see Silva coming out very motivated and aggressive and overwhelming Franklin. Should the fight go the distance, I would think it will favor Silva in his home country as well. FREE PICK – Wanderlei Silva +155

UFC Heavyweight Bout – Fabricio Werdum (15-5-1) vs. Mike Russow (15-1)

Werdum is fighting in his home country as well and taking on Russow, who hasn’t fought anyone at this level in his career. I thought Werdum had improved striking in his UFC return bout against Roy Nelson, and he will certainly be better on the ground than Russow. I see Werdum controlling this fight, but not being able to earn a stoppage. Give me the Brazilian by decision. FREE PICK – Fabricio Werdum -500
