Here is a serious question, in that 23 mins of Sonnen dominance was Silva ever in trouble?

Yes. He was less than 2 minutes away from losing the fight. I would call that trouble.

Also, using your head as punching bag on the ground isn't the best game plan. Regardless of your chin. You can't just sit there and hope that the next shot or shots aren't going to put you out. He was in trouble through the whole fight.

I know he was going to lose the fight, but was he really in trouble. Those shots sonnen was hitting all night really was not doing much damage. There was no point where Sonnen had a furry of GNP where the fight was going to be stop.

I know it isnt the best game plan but its anderson silva. He trains like that where guys actually do furry of GNP on him. He is also know to test his chin constantly in the RIvera fight. Also in the first fight once he got dropped he got right back up , dropped his hands to let sonnen hit him to show he can't be ko.

I'm a Silva fan... but that's rubbish. Silva is one of the greatest fighters of all time. He will go down in history as one of, if not THE most dominant champion in the history of the sport.

Silva was in trouble during that fight. He was being controlled, taken down at will, punched in the face at will, and 2 minutes away from soundly losing the fight. Was he in trouble as far as the fight being stopped? Not really. Was he in trouble of losing? He sure as hell was.

Also, Sonnen may have not many tko's on his record, but the dude is strong as hell. A guy like that pounding on you is always the right couple punches away from ending a fight... especially when you're in his zone of expertise. I'm not talking about a lucky haymaker.

Sonnen may be strong as hell for wrestling, but that doesn't necessarily mean he can translate that strength into striking, because it's technique that translates the potential strength into factual strength. And in that fight, most of Sonnen's punches were hammerfists thrown from the elbow only, there was no body weight behind them and so there was no KO power in them, not even close. Actually, if you train for full contact fighting, you regularly get hit harder in sparring than by most of Sonnen's punches in that fight.

So, yes, Silva was in danger to lose by decision, no doubt about the scorecards being 40-36 or worse against him until the submission, but he was never even close to getting (T)KOed.

In my eyes, In a 5 round fight, once you get to the end of the 3rd round, having clearly lost all 3 rounds, then you are in trouble.
