Chael has improved much more, he rocked Silva, and took him down at will, people will bring up the 16:1 ratio and the broken rib but on an even playing field Sonnen is still a bad match up for Anderson, especially if Vinny has his sub defense up to par.

Sonnen is ruthless, aggressive. he's got a great chin, fantastic cardio and will get in Anderson's face trying to take him down. Vitor, Leites, Okami, Cote, Maia these guys don't have the qualities that Chael has.

Anderson can do some special things but can Anderson stop the takedown? He stopped a few in the first fight but he always managed to end up on his back and if that submission defense is what I hope it is. I think Chael seals the deal with a little more caution.

Chael via conservative decision.

I think we're going to see a different Silva in this fight, I'm going to say Silva Round 1 KO.

Silva is a fool if he hasn't stepped up his TDD a lot.. i can see Sonnen holding him down for 2 rounds at the most, but not in the first and i suspect Silva will do a lot of damage in the first round if somehow he doesn't get the knock out...

actually i can see Silva being very evasive the first couple rounds and do some retarded dancing just to avoid the take down.. either way this isn't going to the final round Silva is gonna get the KO/TKO somewhere in the first 20 min

I imagine Silva is going to do much better this time. No damaged ribs equals a better sprawl. In their first fight he was very frantic in trying to do damage quickly. His kicks were very wild and easily countered. I can see him coming in looking to box for the first 2 rounds

Even when Chael gets Silva to the ground, I don't expect him to be nearly as successful in keeping him there. Expect Anderson to be much more active from his guard and constantly look to scramble to get too his feet. I think Chael gives him a fight, but in the end he gets finished late 3rd-mid 4th.

-Silva has been on the shelf for a while, is he fully healed? Will we see the Andy that toyed with Okami or the Andy that couldn't move his feet against Chael

-Chael looked real bad against Bisping, real bad. Was it a fluke and just lucky timing in the first fight or will Chael be able to dictate the fight again?

I split this one 50/50 because of how bad Chael looked against Bisping and how long Andy's been gone plus his injury
