I personally thought it was weird. Silva didn't need to pull that.
Still, happy with the result. I hope Chael fans can be humble.

I thought Silva asking Chael to a BBQ was pretty humble.

Uh, that was dirty and long as hell for someone not to jump in and correct it. Still, it was a good clean win. I pulled for Cheal, I wanted him to win, shit didn't work out. Nice win for Andy. My parlay came through(#6 on the PG). BTW Andy at -220 is always a good bet, it's almost stupid not to throw money at that. We will never have that good of odds on him again. I told my team the same thing.

Looks like his hand was caught or Sonnen had some sort of sticky stuff on his shorts. In the end the French ref did a fantastic job imo.

There was no need to grab his shorts like that. It didn't affect the fight in any way though so it doesn't matter.

These pics are about 20 secs into the "shorts" grab. I think incidents like this need some sort of penalty. Much like Aldo grabbing the fence vs Mended, this helped tremendously in preventing a takedown.

also the blatant greasing he tried to pull of, good job on Yves for wiping him down.

and had chael not partially blocked that knee with his forearms, it would have been square in the chops and not deflected to his chest.

exciting fight though.

I'll forgive Silva since everyone forgave Chael for juicing.

And what about all these other guys grabbing the fence?

Are we trying to find anything to complain about?

I wouldn't have had a problem with the shorts grab had it not resulted in Anderson landing a strike and turning the tide.


He changed the flow of the fight by making Chael try and get loose.

That's lame. Chael shouldn't have to worry about his shorts getting pulled and then getting clocked trying to get loose
