Silva defeated Sonnen in their second fight. In no way did he destroy him. Bonnar, Irvine, Griffin, and Okami... now these are men Anderson destroyed.
It's Irvin, not Irvine.
Chael's offense was completely nullified in the first round. I don't know how or why laying in someone's guard whilst doing mounting virtually no offense = winning a round. He was stuffed in the second and embarassed on the feet. "Slipped on a banana peel" is only a weak excuse for Chael breaking during the fight and throwing caution to the wind with a hail mary spinning back fist.
When was the last time your boy threw one of those? Why was he so out of his element at that stage? He was lured into the web and then eaten, just like everybody else. Don't deny the ribs now
