As much as I would love to see them fight again, it'll never happen. It's really hard to sell a third fight between the same guys nevermind the fact Silva finished him twice.
People like you seem to forget that before Chael fell down like a goofball that Silva was stuffing his TDs with ease in the 2nd. What exactly was Sonnen going to do if he couldn't lay on Silva for a whole round?

Then because he couldn't complete a TD he threw some spinning crap because he was desperate as hell.

Fact is, Silva won that fight with TDD. From there he has superior skills everywhere including cardio and composure.

Silva didn't win because he a guy fell down. He made Chael look like a clown the whole 2nd round.

Man, Osmium was spot on about Chaels ability to take a punch. He doesn't react well at all to getting hit hard.

That reaction to Silvas strikes was on par with Brock Lesnars and Bob Sapps classic moments.

I predicted Silva to win and Chael to jump ships to WWE. I stand by it.

Not really.

No one has taken Silva's strikes well sans Cote..briefly. Even Dan Henderson was resorted to a flailing and falling down mook.

It was more so the look of defeat and actual fear on Chaels face which I was referring to. No doubt that knee must have really hurt, but I think he mentally broke more than any thing.

Hendo was swinging until the end, he didn't look scared. Chael literally looked terrified when he fell over and silva came crashing down with that knee.

Reminded me of Velasquez/Lesnar so much.

Nope. Budhisten (and myself) have gif avatars, which are allowed as long as they're short and low in size. Only supermods/admins can add them in however and they need to be in the correct dimensions (144px width by 168px length max for a premium member for example).

Gif sigs are not allowed. They're normally far too large and ruin page loading for people without super internet.

So we're going to ignore all of the damage that Sonnen has taken and walked through his entire career because he didn't react well to being swarmed by Anderson? Do you people honestly not think your posts through? Sonnen can take a punch. It's as simple as going back and watching his previous fights. Eating shots to the face from Anderson Silva has turned many men into 'cowards'. Good Lord, the lack of thought some of you put into your posts is astounding, if not depressing. If you can't give Chael the credit he deserves, then as I said in another thread, you diminish Silva's victory. I see this so often from Silva fans (discrediting his opponents) that it's hard to take the 'Silva is the GOAT' talk seriously. If I were to believe you, he only beats mentally weak bums and overrated wrestlers.

I'd not call the fight a 'domination' myself. You can all delude yourselves into believing otherwise, but the fact is, Silva lost the first round. Silva managed to defend well, but he wasn't able to get up off of his back. You can't simply ignore that failure to suit your own devices. The second round was domination, and only after Sonnen slipped and the knee was landed. Up until that point, Chael had cage control. You call it successful take down defence, and as do I, but Anderson was still defending. And 9 times out of 10, if you're defending, you're losing. We see wrestlers do nothing with cage control often and get the win. You know this.

Dominating finish. But hardly a dominating fight. It would be the Silva fans who are reaching in that regard. Full credit to Anderson from me. Unlike many of you, I don't take away from these fighters to make myself feel good. Anderson finished Chael by TKO, starting with one of the nastier knees I've seen to the body. He won the fight. He's defeated Sonnen twice. That's the story here.

And Sonnen finally did what most every man has done against Silva. He folded. If he'd stuck to putting on pressure against the cage and not giving up on his base, like he did with Bisping, things might have turned out differently. He wasn't able to land a couple of take-downs... I don't see that as a reason to give up entirely, especially when you landed one in the first and won the round. But then, most men abandon their strongpoints when fighting Anderson. The ability to frustrate his competition is another feat I often credit him with. He's a wizard in that area.

You will not get to see another fight because this guy got finished twice and got destroyed the second time. There is no rubber match for 2-time losers. It's the end of the road for chael.
Silva didn't do anything he said he would. He didn't finish in the first round, he didn't hurt Sonnen, he didn't brutalize him. None of the such. He absolutely did NOT dominate anyone.

And wrong again. Rampage got a third fight after actually being dominated twice. Ken Shamrock got a third fight after being finished twice. Tito got a third fight with Chuck after being finished twice. These things do happen

I guess you missed the knee and fetal position part of the fight.
