Welcome back. Thanks for your service to our country.
I agree with everything you said... almost eerie how much I agree.
The only slight disagree. I am a Sonnen fan, but I think Silva will sub him again. I re-watched the fight. Silva's wrist control from bottom was great throughout most of the fight. I'm surprised he didn't try to go for that triangle sooner. I remember the first time I watched that fight I kept thinking Silva was going to sub him because of how he was able to control Chael's arms. I was very surprised he didn't try anything until the 5th round.
I see the fight going 1 of 3 ways.
1. Silva KO's Chael within 30 seconds.
2. Silva gets taken down, and has an EXTREMELY aggressive bottom game and subs Chael within 2 minutes.
3. Chael wins via decision.
I am personally rooting for Chael... but I think Silva will have his number this time around.
