That makes what happened even more epic. This might actually be more embarrassing than what happened to Forrest against Silva.
In my opinion it is more embarrassing anyways. Griffin was just to slow for Silva and hence got punched in the face, that's normal fighting business. Silva just made it look special, because he is leagues ahead in timing. Sonnen tried to be cool and fell on his butt like a clown, before curling up scared into fetal position.
