Rich Franklin Merchandise Will Soar After UFC 147

It was after midnight eastern time on Saturday night/Sunday morning and Twitter was blowing up.  Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva were having a borderline barbaric battle in UFC 147 and fans couldn't stop tweeting...or talking about it.   The fight had vicious blows, skilled shots and even a kick or two in the gonads.  The beating both fighters took wasn't lost on the frenzied Brazilian crowd but in the end, it was Franklin coming away with a win, 49-46 on all three scorecards.  The entire night may go down as one of the greatest of all time and Rich Franklin merchandise is going to be hot among UFC collectors.

How wild was the Franklin vs Silva bout?  Rich told interviewers afterward he couldn't remember anything between end of 2nd and beginning of 5th round.

He hadn't fought in 16 months, but still managed to stop Silva on the Brazilian's home turf.  Impressive to say the least, and something that will endear fans to UFC 147 for a long time.  In short, if you watched it, you won't forget it.

Franklin's appeal is partly because of his likability and sportsmanship.  True UFC fans respect him as a man and his ability to show Silva that respect after the fight will win over anyone who may have been on the fence about this great champion.

Regarded as a true class act, Franklin is a friend to UFC collectors, having appeared at the National Sports Collectors Convention a few years ago where he was a bit hit with fans.   Whether you're talking posters, autographs, cards, endorsed gear or other memorabilia, Rich Franklin merchandise is about to get very, very hot.
