I don't know, it looks like his chin absorbed a percentage of that.



Chael's hands were up, he wasn't a grounded opponent - fair game for a knee to the face. [/QUOTE

This fight was good. The card as a whole was a bit of a let down but the Main and Co-Main events were great

He didn't make it look easy by any thoughts. Chael for the next title shot!

He is sitting on the ground but not grounded...did your mom drop you when you were a baby?

No need to be rude.

I thought you needed one hand on the ground to be grounded

That was a good fight. I honestly believe that had Sonnen not been cocky and thrown that spinning backfist, it would have been a different fight, but props to Silva for taking advantage of the situation, that's what makes him the champ.

Spoiler Alert:



Now that Anderson defeated Chael_Sonnen, what are your thoughts? Silva made it look easy. I just am trying to figure out who Silva fights next.



Silva made it look easy? I doubt you were thinking that after the first round.

To me it looks like The center of his knee is in Chael's chest.





Knee was clean, anyone who disagrees is just bitter Chael lost imo.

I totally agree with this. Chael was winning the fight quite comfortably until he made the stupid mistake of going for that spinning back-fist.

Chael is the only fighter that makes Anderson look ordinary.

The knee was clean, the replay showed it even though I personally wish it didn't. Leave moms out of this guys.

Silva has nothing else to do in the MW Division IMO....a move to LHW and an immediate title shot vs Jon Jones is all I want for Christmas.....screw my two front teeth!!
