Stann was apparently going to wait it out until 3 seconds left in the fight to sub Chael as well, unfortunately Chael got him first.

I just dont understand how people say Sonnen destroyed Silva in their 1st fight. At no point was Sonnen even close to finishing the fight. As far as IMO if you are on top of someone for 20 minutes "destroying them" you would finish. Thats not what happened. There is no doubt he was winning but he was by no definition destroying Silva

maybe your definition of "destroying" is different than most. before the hail mary triangle, Silva had the upper hand for maybe 35 seconds of the fight. Sonnen completely dominated and controlled Silva and did virtually everything he wanted to in that fight. how is that not destroying him?

To be fair Anderson took little damage. I see why ppl say destroy and have no isse with it but I aslo see what he is saying its not like Anderson was ever in danger of being finished. Clearly he was winning 40-36 and in terms of sports he was destroying him.

Silva by KOing the most disrespectful fighter of all time. I can't wait for another finish and then Chael has nothing to say...who brings up somebody's wife
