Godofredy Pepey vs. Rony Jason (11-3, 146), Jaosn out with his Jason from Friday the 13th mask on.  The show must be over in Brazil because people were going wild here with "Jason" chants.  This is the TUF featherweight tournament finals.

Sergio Moraes (6-2, 185) vs. Cezar Ferreira (5-2, 184) - Moraes took a swing at Ferreira when Ferreira in the post put his first into the guys chest.  A bunch of people
stepped in between them.

Rich Franklin (28-6, 1 no contest, 190) vs. Wanderlei Silva (34-11-1, 1 no contest, 188) - Of course Franklin was booed.  Crowd chanted like crazy for Silva, he seemed really happy for this reaction.  It's his first fight in Brazil since 1999.  Franklin said the reaction to him wasn't as bad for him as he expected given it's in Silva's backyard.  He seemed concerned about going 25 minutes.  Crowd booed him like crazy.  Silva did his interview in Portuguese.
