In a number of weeks no.

But remember the first Silva/Sonnen fight was nearly 2 years ago, I would imagine Chael's spent the last two years working on his ju-jitsu non-stop. Of course he's had years to work on it throughout his entire career but one could maybe say the Silva loss was the straw that broke the camels back.
