Former UFC Middleweight Champion Rich Franklin is hoping to stake claim at one more title shot before he hangs up the 4 oz. gloves.

Franklin talked about his desire for one more shot following his decision victory over Wanderlei Silva this weekend at UFC 147 in Brazil:

“That was my intention when I moved backs down to 185. I'm glad that you and probably everybody else notices that I've bailed the UFC out a lot. I hope that's going to pay off in the future at some point in time. Moving back down to 185, the idea was that enough time has passed since my title fight, and perhaps if I could put a couple of wins together, I could make another run at the title before I retire.”
