I've been thinking hard and slow to what the media is saying about the the guy to beat Anderson silva; some say it could be Dan Henderson now or bones jones, or even GSP, but am i too crazy to say that Chael Sonnen was the only dude to ever hurt and dominate Anderson Silva and that he deserves a rematch over all of those guys?

Even before the yushin okami fight i was thinking "UFC what are you doing!!!!!" or Joe silva, give him Chael sonnen again because i believe Anderson's performance that day was really bad, and he really was overwhelmed by Cheal until the miracle Triangle choke.

Anybody feel the same or am i smoking crack? i do not discredit Jones or GSP, i just think before making a super fight like that, give him Chael first then think about other fights.

Thoughts???

He rocked Silva two or three times. That should be considered "hurt".

Can you pass the crack pipe buddy? Miracle? Did you not see that triangle coming? Silva wanted to tap him out b/c of all the things Sonnen said about BJJ. Not sayin he shouldn't get another shot, but it was obvious he was setting him up for a triangle the whole fight. Not to mention, Sonnen was juicin for that fight.

He never rocked him imo, but he absolutely damaged him. He dropped silva and landed heavy shots in gnp.

I seriously did not see that triangle coming, if he was setting him up for a triangle at round 5 why did he purposely get taken down for 4 rounds taken all that damage, get rocked like three times, all because he wanted to set a triangle at round 5?, i do not buy that crap.

juicin' aside has he not been the only guy to ever dominate and almost beat AS?
Fix his Bjj defense and i could predict Chael Sonnen could be the only guy to beat AS in the middleweight division.

I dont care what anyone says about Silva being hurt...

IMO he was never hurt and was making up for his antics in previous fights...

Come on man...Think about it...Silva was on teh hot seat and really nobody was interested in his fights...The way teh Sonnen fight went down was perfect to create hype for Silva and the UFC...

Of course Silva is not hype but him destroying everyone doesnt help the UFC...Him toying with guys and acting foolish did not help teh UFC...The way the Sonnen fight went down you couldnt write a better script for the UFC in marketing Silva, pay perviews for the rematch and the ongoing hype machine the fight created...


Its funny how he gets triangled in the fifth round all sweaty....he was on whatever but didnt have the strength to pull out...Cmon man...Out of all my years of watching the UFC I have never even heard of something so perfect for building a hype...

you mean to tell me the fight was fixed to benefit silva's hype as the best middleweight champion?

so with that point of view many fights has been fixed like think Matt Hughes vs Frank Trigg II, or GSP vs Matt Serra, you mean to tell me that UFC is slowly becoming the WWE?

there are a few people on this forum who are obvious arguers & are not worth the educated response you give them.

ignore the trolls & move along

1. Anderson was getting his butt kicked, Anderson was trying to survive for the entire fight.

2. You have no proof Chael was juicing, so please don't speculate.
