If that knee did hit him in the face Sonnen would now be toothless, with a purple eye and with a twisted nose, AT LEAST.

but no, his baby face is intact so you guys can stop worring about it.

That gif is misleading. Freeze it on your tv it hits the chest first.

While that gif does look bad, I was watching the HD version and saw that it hit the chest.

Sure, you could make the case that his thigh hit Chael's face... but.. I don't think that matters. The real issue is the 20 second shorts grab and shoulder strike at weigh ins.

Whoever did the gif paused it at the point of impact. Reluctantly, I have to concede the top of the knee does hit Sonnen in the face first. The knee then drops down to the chest. It all happens so quickly in realtime.

Damn it. I was convinced it was legit.


EDIT
Thinking about it, if Silva was trying to hit Sonnen in the face, what was he thinking? Would he really throw away the belt just so he can make Sonnen eat his own teeth for real? If so... then I'm impressed.
I don't think it's as bad as you say - but it's not as clear-cut as most say it is, either. Looks to me like the point of the knee hit at the manubrium, while the top of his knee hit his chin.

Inconsequential at this point though.

Not trying to convince anybody. Just pointing out that I personally thought the knee was legal but after looking at that gif my opinion has changed. I'm not particularly happy about it.

No prob, Sooj - I wasn't really arguing the point, but just throwing in my own opinion with yours. We're pretty much on the same page with this, I'd say- I'm not happy about it, either. Too bad most are too swept up with emotion & bias to see it.

That still isn't a perfect enough angle to say it was knee and not thigh. The

The problem is that the gif is misleading. When I freeze it on my TV in HD it is obvious where the knee lands. Sure it might graze his head, but wHY WOULD THAT MATTER?

Anyways, like Spoken said, if you wanna be mad at Anderson that is not the thing to get mad about. The shorts are much worse.

Youre making it more complicated then it is Ape, old buddy. I was simply putting it on record that my opinion on the knee has changed. Nothing more. Nothing less.

The shorts thing isn't debatable. Silva cheated. No argument from me. Do I care? Not a bit. I'm glad he won and that's all I give a shit about.

A knee is a knee, a thigh is a thigh. If Anderson wanted, that knee would hit Chael's upper right molar, if that was the tooth he was aiming.
