... finishing up with a bit of tea-bagging. Perfect.

Anderson by whatever he wants. I'll say TKO 2nd round.

That was the worst and slowest I have ever seen Silva. That was perhaps the best I have ever seen Sonnen. He can't even drop an average fighter....yet he knocked down SIlva? Doubt that happens again.

I think Silva will do much better when standing and using footwork to keep Chael at a distance. May catch him coming in with a knee. If Chael gets him down he still has to stay out of subs. I think Anderson would sub him faster this time.

Chael came in as a 5 to 1 dog with nothing to lose. Anderson had little to gain and it seemed like another easy win. Now Chael has something to lose and Anderson knows exactly what he will bring.

In other words: Anderson has much room for doing better while Chael can't fight much better than he did the first time.

I think Anderson wants to do more than just knock him out this time. He wants to break him. Just based on the comments he's made leading up to this fight, I think he wants to humiliate Sonnen. I think he'll want to draw it out longer than just one round. He wants to break his will in front of the whole world and end this feud once and for all.

Of course that's easier said than done, but I still say Silva takes this one.

Give More.
Give everything.
Give blood.

In all seriousness, do some of you really believe this is going to be easy for Silva?

I have no idea who's going to win this, but Im hoping for Sonnen.
Anyways, after this fight, we're either going to talk about how old Silva is and how he should retire, or we're going to be talking about how much Sonnen sucks without his "steroids"

Sonnens only hope of winning is to emulate his performance and strategy from the first fight, minus the sub. Silva knows this and has hopefully worked on a better gameplan. If Silva does a slightly improved version of Bispings performance he'll get the win. TKO round 3 for Silva. Expectiing a competitive fight though.

After re-watching several fights of Chael (Nate, Stann, Prangley, & Anderson Silva) he's showed he can land his takedowns at will.

Anderson's take down may have improved, but I believe that will not be his focus. It'll be to maneuver around to find his opening and that is all.

I predicted a third round triangle choke submission in their first fight, but for this one I'm not sure.

A provoked Anderson Silva comes up with an arsenal none have seen before. I actually think Anderson may string him along for several rounds even a fifth just to break him down mentally and physically to return the favor. He'll knock Chael down, but won't finish em. This in order to prove his point.

All I can say is once his entrance song blasts on the stereo I'll be watching intently.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Anderson is going to retire Sonnen. He'll have to go back to selling real estate.......oh wait.
