    lol I agree with you....he might not be the most talented fighter, but he sure is being entertaining, promoting the **** out of the fight, and will make Silva fight. So either Silva will step up and KO Chael early, or it could be one hell of a brawl.

    I would like to see a competitive fight, but I just dont see it happening. I think Sonnen will rush in and get caught. I could see him getting Silva down but since he has a history of getting sub'd, I think it looks like the Lutter fight

    I hope Sonnen smothers Silva and we see another upset. I doubt it though. Silva's pointy limbs always seem to know where to land.

    I think it depends on how much self-control he has. If he plays silva's game, which is silva's goal, he'll lose. If he can last 2-3 rounds, and grind him out a bit, then turn it up and go vitor on his lanky ass, it'll be over. Silva will run, again, if he's getting caught with bombs.

    Bingo. I was yelling 'nonono' when he did that. ****. At least he exposed Silva for what he is: a rather 1 dimensional fighter.

    last night was a prime reason that I wanted Shields at 185. Not that he is the wrestler that Sonnen is, but I think he matfhes up as a better challenger for Silva than GSP.

    I give Sonnen a great deal of credit, he was a beast and I would like to see a rematch prior to Vitor getting a shot

    Sonnen screwed up Royally by posturing up. He's a triangle magnet.

    Word now is that Silva has a rib injury therefore the poor performance and that Silva let Sonnen hit him knowing Sonnen could not hurt him.

    I must re watch to see if Siva was faking the fight to make it exciting as many are also saying this morning. They are saying he could have ended the fight anytime but wanted to make it up to Dana and the fans.

    Even Sonnen is saying he expected more resistance.

    The conspiracy theories about "faking fights" are nonsense, in my opinion: Chael pressured Anderson on the feet very early - something his other opponents failed to do -and that early left which wobbled the champion set the tone for the rest of the fight.

    Despite my deep, burning hatred for Anderson Silva, credit must be given here: to be thrashed for four rounds and have the fortitude to win the fight in its last gasps is impressive! But on the other hand, this fight cemented what I have been saying for the past two and a half years - GSP has the precise composite skills to defeat Anderson Silva, and would win that fight beyond a shadow of a doubt.

    Not sure if it happened in the fight or before in training like Silva says, but he was HURTING after the fight - could barely walk with the ribs and I didn't see Silva do any damage to Silva's ribs in the fight. Also interesting how Silva took all that abuse and not even a cut, mouse or anything. Sonnen only took a couple shots and was a mess.

    It was nice to see Silva get his ass kicked for 4 rounds but can someone go ahead and win? Come on Vitor knock him out!

    So you didn't see Silva stand there with his hands down and simply roll with Sonnens punches?

    Many noticed how Silva did the same while on his back...roll with Sonnen's punches...not getting hurt.

    If any other fighter I would agree but this wouldn't be the first time Silva deliberately put on a show.

    Are you being serious? There are a great number of ways Silva could have gone about "putting on a show," but being taken down at will, wobbled on the feet, and beaten and controlled on the ground certainly seems like the most implausible of all.

    The reality here - sorry to burst the ever-increasing A. Silva fandom - is that, like many fighters at the upper echelons of the sport, he has perfected a certain aspect of fighting (striking) at the expense of others (defensive wrestling and ground control) and Sonnen was the perfect stylistic match up to expose that. Like many wrestlers, Sonnen uses the thread of the TD to set up strikes and he caught Anderson dancing last night.

    I can't decide which would be more satisfying: to see him twitch, or tap.

    I always sort of thought this was probably true, but after last night. I completely agree with you. It wouldn't even be close. Last night wasn't even close, but Sonnen is a fking idiot. (I was so disappointed in him to waste the first 4.75 rounds on a mental mistake.) GSP wouldn't make that same mistake and would beat the sh!t out of Anderson, minus getting caught with a strike.

    Hearing Silva say he had a rib injury coming in brought the last couple of minutes immediately before the fight into perspective. I was watching Silva and remember thinking that he looked like Sonnen's trash talking had gotten into his head. Maybe this was really just him being preoccupied with his injury.

    I was surprised that Silva didn't try for that triangle sooner. Who I am to say though; he still pulled it off.

    Arrogance is bliss, my friend!

    Unfortunately, the way A. Silva and Dana White have spoken about the fight, my fear is that I will never have the opportunity to take that money from you via your fighter's non-existent wrestling.

    (This is the part where you say Silva was baiting Sonnen the entire time - by lying helpless on the ground while being dominated for an entire fight. )

    Hello Mullet!

    Didnt notice you in here.

    I might be jabbing a bit. All in fun.

    I eagerly await our wishful bout. The "mullet" tagged $250 dollars is itching to double in size.

    lol.

    I agree, I dont forsee a GSP vs Spider bout in any immediate future.

    I think the whole rib injury is bs unless he can provide proof. Im sorry if he actually had an injury that caused him that much pain he would have just tried to destroy Sonnen like he did Griffin. And that crap about wanting to put on a show for the fans and Dana White well after he destroyed Griffin people jumped back on his bandwagon so there goes that arguement.

    CRY!!!!!

    Spider still holds the title. Thats all my wallet cares about right now.

    lol

    It not like we have never seen a fight go down like this before.

    This happens all the time. Guy gets beat on until the last round and somehow pulls out the win.

    What a shocker!

    Makes for great entertainment IMO.

    I know man. Just having fun, nothing serious.

    I know alot of guys are pretty pissed though. Where I was at last night, it was about 75/25split. I was the minority.

    I heard ALOT of trash until the last round.

    Then I collected $$$ and LOL'd.

    I imagine you had issues locating me if you can't seem to locate an apostrophe, ha!

    In all seriousness, last night's complete drubbing and narrow escape cemented what I already knew: this super fight needs to occur, not only because I want to be $250 richer, but for the sheer sporting aspect.
