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.
You are almost more delusional then Chael himself...
Yes Chael had a good first round but in the 2nd Silva stuffed multiple takedown attempts, caught Chael with a couple punches and already had Chael flustered when he went for the spinning backfist and ended up on his ass... Silva then placed a devastating knee and some great punches to put Sonnen away.
Didn't matter if Sonnen slipped on that punch or not. Silva had already gone into kill mode and Sonnen wasn't going to make it out of that round.
