Sonnen's backstage reaction to the loss
 
Hey guys, Dana was talking to Jim Rome and shared something Sonnen said to him backstage in reaction to the loss against Silva. Makes me look at Chael in a whole new light.

He was wrong about breaking Andy in the 1st but right about getting destroyed in the second.

Broke Silva in the first round...hmm. Silva seemed pretty calm to me and looked to be focusing on his breathing and just riding out the first round. When the round ended he got up and ran to his corner. Didn't see a hint of a broken man.

Nice to hear the other comments though.

Can someone transcribe at work cannot listen to it.

I feel he underestimated Silva's mental strength. Probably thought he broke his will, but he did the same thing for 4 rounds collectively in their last fight. Somehow that didnt break him, but this first round did?

Basically Sonnen said that when he was on top of Silva in the first round he felt Silva break, and for Silva to come back from that in the second and destroy him, Chael has so much respect for Silva,stating that he's been competing in combat sports since he was 7 and he's never seen anybody comeback like that after originally being dominated.

I wrestled in high school and I can tell you one thing. You can definitely feel someone break. Whether its a failed escape, getting taken down, or being held down. You can feel the frustration in their movement and breathing.

Sonnen probably felt something that caused him to think that, and maybe he feels like he either got over confident or decided take it easier.

At best that 1st round is a display on how to use effective bjj to cancel adversary top position, another kind of display of Silva's greatness and well rounded game.
Chael had nothing to offer in the 1st except for the 1st 10 seconds.
If he really said that, he's just being looney (again).

If I remember correctly he actually stumbled to the wrong corner.

Yea that was a real even round...

Silva landed ZERO strikes, attempting just two.

Sonnen landed 76-of-86 strikes (14-of-21 significant strikes), scored one takedown and improved position on the ground twice.

Im not going to argue Sonnen did any significant damage in the first round (because he didnt) but all this Silva nuthugging is getting ridiculous. He gets mounted and doesnt land a single punch for the entire round and thats another "display of Silva's greatness and well rounded game"?????

I listened to this yesterday in the car it was really interesting. Chael seems like a good guy and completely different than what he is when he is selling a fight.

I still can't believe the silva fans are being hard on even when he is giving silva a complement. Come on get over it guys.
