Las Vegas, NV – After a seven-month absence, UFC® World Middleweight Champion Rich “Ace” Franklin returns to the Octagon™ to make his third title defense against the seemingly unstoppable UFC newcomer Anderson “The Spider” Silva. With a history of vicious striking and devastating knockout power, Silva has quickly become the most dangerous contender in the UFC middleweight division. Franklin, who remains undefeated in the UFC, will put his belt up for stakes when he squares off against Silva in the main event of the Ultimate Fighting Championship® organization’s UFC 64: UNSTOPPABLE taking place live from Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Events Center Saturday, Oct. 14.

Like I said, Tough call on Silva/Franklin but I am going to give Ace the Edge. Sean Sherk will destroy Kenny Florian!

Sean Sherk is a UFC veteran who actually gave Matt Hughes some trouble! Kenny cannot just roll over him like he did with Kit Cope!

lol sean sherks an animal, sherk will destroy him. I Personally don't think Kenflo has the cred to just jump into the ring with Sherk, sherk's only lost 2 fights and it was to GSP and Hughes, and Hughes was by decision.

All and all im definetly ordering this ppv (other then the fact i'd pay money to watch sean fight anyone), i think Ace is going to beat Silvia personally. I just haven't seen alot from silvia other then he has a large amount of punching power, but ace is one of the hardest guys in the ufc to even land a punch on. I hope they build up a good card around this ppv as well. I'd like to see Joe Stevenson fight someone like spencer fischer. I personally think Stevenson is better then kenflo, he has just as good jiu jitsu and a stronger body frame.

Anyways should be good, and i can't wait for it.

I have not been too impressed with Joe Stevenson since he won TUF. Florian has some vicious elbows, he busted up Leben and he damn near knocked Alex Karalexis's nose clean off!!! I agree that he is probably over matched with Sean Sherk. Silva has alot of experience but he has had one fight in the UFC, how does that make him unstoppable? I think Franklin will knock him out.

Maybe you didn't see Joe Stevenson fight Yves Edwards, because that was probably one of the bloodiest cuts i've seen. I like Yves Edwards but Joe had em beat once he took him to the ground.

You're right I did not see that fight but I saw a short clip of the beat down afterwards. Edwards was a mess, until Dewees got cut on TUF I thought that was the bloodiest fight that I had seen. With respect to Stevenson, I was less than impressed with his TUF finals win and he lost his first official UFC fight. I like him its good to see he has rebounded.

Sean sherk had to fight up a weight class or 2 just to fight hughes. And he took it to hughesa hardcore. Sherk will be unstopable in 155lbs class. I used to think franklin was the man but not after the crow fight. He couldn't finish him and ended up breaking both his hands. I don't think his hands can hold up after that. Silva has been knocking people out while ace was teaching math. He is a vet and will dominate.

actually Ace has been fighting MMA longer then Silva by 2 months lol

and Ace has 1 more fight then Silva as well.

Plus franklin broke 1 hand not both of them, and hell if you do that much damage to a guy and punch him that many times there not much else you really can do. He dominated The Crow and i don't think theres alot of other middleweights that can take that kind of beating, maybe evan tanner lol he took a beating as well.

But ya Sherk's a beast, i really wish they'd give him better fights then just GSP and Hughes then drop him down to Nick Diaz. I would have liked to see him fight Joe Stevenson, Diego Sanchez or other WW/LW fighters that match up good with him.

I see Franklin winning by KO in a outright war. Whether it goes two minutes of a few rounds, both these guys are brutal strikers. Sherk is going to whoop up on Kenny. Kenny would have lost that fight to chris except for the cut. He was losing the fight where he opened that guys nose up in my opinion too. Another overrated show fighter. I like Andersen a lot, but is he really that elite? I guess we will find out. He lost a few times in Pride to some guys he should have beat, but he also destroyed some of the best in Pride too. I dont know if kicking the crybabies ass is justification for a title shot, but I think he comes in and provides the first taste of the wave of pride fighters. I still see franklin winning though. very smart fighter. Who has Franklin lost too? Is it beyond the realm of reason to see him drop down five or matt hughes putting on five and doing a mixed class like they did in the Hughes Gracie match a few months back??? Joe stevensen's lost because he was inexperienced and fighting about twenty pounds above where he should have been. He's got a good chin, dominated edwards, and the poster about that being the sickest cut in a long time is absolutly right. I think Joe has the tools to compete at 155. If I haven't checked my stats right and he's fighting at 165 or higher then I take it back, but at 155 he should be a competitive fighter. What about the return of Jens Pulver? Been to long since little evil whooped some ass.

Jens is a boxer, thats about it. I think guys like Sherk, Stevenson, Florian, would dominate him on the ground and guys like Yves Edwards, Sam Stout, Melvin Guillard will give him a tough time on his feet.

All around the 155 division is by the best division the ufc has and its also the most fun to watch.

At UFC 64 its rumored that Jeff Monson will be taking Tim Sylvias title and Rich Franklin will be retaining his title against Anderson Silva. I don't think Florian and Sherk are going to fight this PPV though.
