This fight isn't about Silva's wrestling defense or Sonnen's control of distance.

If Silva makes the correct adjustment to his stance and Sonnen is any less aggressive than he was last time, this fight may not hit the mat at all.

Even if Sonnen is as fearless as before, his choice of punch is what let him control the fight last time and unless he can anticipate Silva's tactics and bring a strike that Silva is not expecting again, he will not obtain the takedown as easily and will be countered.
