Yeah, the Maia submissions were pretty good I have to admit. I was really impressed with his submission of Chael Sonnen. Of course ironically Sonnen did so much better against Silva then Maia.

why is that ironic? maia is a much more decorated submission fighter than anderson, and frankly 99% of the UFC. ironic would have been maia KO'ing sonnen.

Well Maia dominated Sonnen on the ground and couldn't even take Silva down. Sonnen took Silva down and dominated him on the ground until the end of the fight. To me that is ironic.

To me that was some extremely good grappling. Remember that I am a wrestler and have respect for other types of grappling. For me to see a wrestler who is supposed to be a master of takedowns get thrown like that was spectacular in every respect.

Yeah, but Sonnen was by no means dominating on his feet. He was in control but he was going for the takedown and controlling Maia. By no means was he detroying him on his feet.
