Rich Franklin & Wanderlei Silva’s Awkward Elevator Meeting – Video

This is an awesome video! What would happen if two UFC rivals were to wind up in the same elevator a day before they are scheduled to headline a UFC event? Well you are about to find out as Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva find themselves in an awkward situation.

I love this video. It really shows the class of both Wanderlei Silva and Rich Franklin in my opinion. The video was shot on Friday after the UFC 147 weigh-ins. Franklin is about to get on the elevator before realizing Wanderlei and his team are in the elevator. The guys have a lot of fun including one of Wandy’s team members who yells, “Let’s get him!”

You can check out the video for yourself here. As much crap as these guys are taking online for being a subpar main-event, they appear to be loose, calm, and in fun spirits. It is obvious watching this video that there is little to no bitterness between these two and their fight is strictly business on Saturday night.

Now if only someone can set up a similar situation between Chael Sonnen and Anderson Silva shortly before UFC 148.
