BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil - Former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin has his eyes set on one more run to the top.

get another crack at the title, Franklin is hoping his string of favors
for the promotion has earned him a bit of leverage.
"I'm glad that you and probably everybody
else notices that I've bailed the UFC out a lot,"
Franklin told MMAjunkie.com. "I hope that's going to
pay off in the future at some point in time."

The 190-pound catch-weight fight took place at UFC 147 at Estadio Jornalista Felipe Drumond in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. It served as the main event on the pay-per-view following prelims that aired on Facebook and FX.

Franklin finds himself in that position again on Saturday when he meets Wanderlei Silva at UFC 147 in Silva's home country of Brazil.

wait to soak in the reception.
"I'm excited to fight in Brazil, and I'm actually interested to see if I
