I'll be honest. I was expecting foul play in this fight, and was pleasantly surprised by how tame it was.
When Chael was sat against the fence I thought 'Oh dear he is going to get kicked or kneed in the face and Anderson is not going to care if he gets disqualified, RIP Sonnen'. Silva was brutal and legal all at the same time, which of course we see often in this sport but the emotional drama of this fight is the kind that makes fighters do wrong.
If you can't appreciate Anderson's performance here, I don't understand your standards.
