if your on your ass your grounded FACT the knee was legal because it hit his chest not his chin but hes still grounded

silva grabbing the shorts was a little bullshit but hey if you can get away with it you do it everytime

The knee is clearly clean I knew it was clean before the replay. It hit Chael right in the chest.

Props to Chael for dominating the first round.

Spider looked good in the second round stuffed a couple take downs and went in for the kill when it was there.

Silva made it look easy.

Did you watch the fight???




Real funny. I would say he made it look easy in the second round. Putting his hands down hitting Chael a couple of times must have been hard right?

Risk vs reward guys. Chael went for a spinning backfist, something he never does and probably shouldn't have and he paid for it. He's a good technical boxer and went for a home run and paid for it. If going off the top rope in the WWE taught us anything, it's that sometimes a guy gets his knees up or rolls out of the way. His spinning backfist was the equivalent and he paid for it. Don't make this shit personal guys.

My thoughts on the fight?



Also...@Chael__Sonnen:

I TOLD YOU SO!!!

ALSO!!!

The knee was obviously clean.

I was at a bar and the guy next to me yells "That shit was illegal." I had a few in me and yelled right back at him "No it wasn't!!! That shit was right in the body." When Joe Rogan commented on the "knee to the body" the guy says to me, "Ok, I guess you're right."


Moral of the story? Chael has lost twice in a row now. Don't be bitter Sonnen fans. Anderson is just a much much much much better and more complete fighter.




PS, This fight vindicates every post I have ever made on the playground.

Anderson won.

I didn't like it but it happened.


Chael lost it after the 1st.

I'm thinking an adrenaline dump. His takedown was so fast in the first. His pace was almost frenzied . He was amped.

Then came the second and he wished he would have paced himself.

Andersons still the champ I give him his props

the knee was very clean. Silva came in way way way too over aggressive in the 1st round and put on his back because of it.

2nd round he wasn't so stupid and did a good job defending take downs and having Chael make a mistake and Anderson took advantage of that mistake.

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.



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.


And Anderson made Chael eat his words. I don't care if Chael.was winning the fitter, he lose AGAIN and he needs to live with that
