UFC 147: Rich Franklin Gets Stuck In An Elevator With Wanderlei Silva And His Team

Despite the occasional heated stare-down, UFC competitors are usually fairly friendly with their opponents in the days before and after their fights. Even after some of the most brutal and bloody bouts, the competitors who just squared off are usually talking casually and joking with one another, as best seen on UFC President Dana White's video blogs.

Likewise, even though there isn't much in the way of bad blood between Rich Franklin and Wanderlei SIlva, who are headlining UFC 147 in Brazil tonight, it still made for an awkward and amusing moment when Franklin wandered into an elevator after yesterday's weigh-ins, only to find himself surrounded by Wandy and his rowdy crew. Check out the video of the encounter below:


Silva and his team were having fun at the expense of the official who got on the elevator before Franklin, so they were already in a jovial mood before the man they've been training to fight even strolled through the doors, completely unaware of what he was getting into.
