Watch it in slow mo. He doesn't block it. It isn't deflected by anything. It's actually aimed downwards. If it missed it was going to hit lower and not higher.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Ofcourse Sonnen is going to say it had no impact on the fight. If he goes around saying it impacted the fight then YOU and thousands like you are going to be talking bullshit about how Chael is making excuses and whatever else. Anybody can figure that one out.

Anderson grabbing the shorts helped him stop the takedown. The fight would have been different had Anderson not held the shorts in the second round and went down as he was supposed to. But he did hold the shorts and saved himself so we will never know what would have happened had Anderson not broke the rules. And Chael held the shorts back for a split second just to return the favor but since Anderson didnt go for the take down it didnt even matter it was more of the act of doing it back and letting him know wtf.

Chael is being very gracious. The Goat looks desperate in these






I couldn't find any pics of Chael grabbing Siva's shorts. Surely there must be some

Actually I'm not going to argue with you guys. Chael's fans won't even listen to what he says happened in the fight. If your own idol can't convince you it was fair and square nothing I can say will.

This gif pisses me off so bad because Chael drops down for a double leg and the only thing that stops him from getting it is Anderson holding Chaels shorts so he cant break that grib and get his arms all the way around the legs. And not only does he stop it right there but then even 2 seconds later when Chael tries tossing him to the left he cant because his right arm cant reach all the way around because Anderson is holding the shorts some more.

Its irritating to look at.... And ofcourse Anderson fans are sweeping it under the rug. Atleast be honest about it.

Anderson was better and finished the fight in amazing fashion. I have no problem being honest about that. But i also cant avoid the shorts grabbing stopping the takedown/

Ofcourse he is going to say that. Otherwise youl get comments like "Chael is just being whiny bitch" etc. Or "Dude u do TRT".

So Sonnen is being a man and just giving props were props is due instead of opening up a different can of worms that quiet frankly wont get him anywhere.

This is common in the human race.

The fans arnt in Sonnens situation so they can tell the truth without facing the backlash.

If a GIF showing Anderson doing it cant convince you then nothing will.

Jesus crist i just noticed when they are separated from the fence Anderson is still holding Chaels shorts lmao. It prevents him from dropping and taking a decent double leg and he doesnt even let him move back. hahahha holy ****. That so horrible.

Anderson wiped vaseline on himself. Check.
Anderson grabbed Chael's shorts. Check.
Anderson launched a near perfect knee to Chael's chest. Check. (Replays, gifs have clearly shown that it was perfectly legal.)

Chael grabbed Anderson's shorts. Check.
Chael threw an elbow near the back of Anderson's head. Check.
Chael took PEDs. Check.

At the end of the day are you guys really stating that the above was conducive to the outcome. I'd have to say Kongo kneeing his opponents in the gonadz is far dirtier or Josh poking everyones' eyes out. Even though it's legal, Hendo covers his opponents mouth when he's in the top position. Fedor grabbed the ropes to break his fall in one of his fights. Sakaraba tapped twice (not three times) to fake out the Gracies. Bisping clearly kneed Jorge Riviera when he was down and spat at his corner. JBJ sticks his fingers out in his opponents eyes and face. List goes on.

Not to justify it, but every fighter dabbles in the grey area once in awhile. But I think it's a very minor element considering. PEDs is something else...

All in all I think it's just much ado about nothing...

Fight is over...it's time for all of us to move on and join the BBQ with Chael and Anderson...lolz!

I never noticed it so much in the fight, seeing it a second time it does come across as blatant desperation on Silva's part.

Chael threw an elbow near the back of Anderson's head. Check. Lol threw a elbow NEAR the back of the head??? Nice try.
Chael took TRT Treatment legally to battle Hypogonadism. Check.

Since you checked it off can you find me a gif of it??? Id like to compare Chaels shorts grabbing to Anderson. (Chael grabbing shorts)

And nice try on the elbow thing just to even the numbers haha.

And we are moved on. But moving on doesnt mean pretending something never happened. Moving on means realizing/admitting what happened and the effects it had on the situation. And then accepting it and moving on. If anything i noticed Anderson Silva fans are the ones in denial about it and not moved on.

Grabbing the shorts there was a crafty veteran move.

It certainly was. If you aint cheating you aint playing to win.
It was a Risk/Reward move and it paid off for Anderson. I dont blame him for doing it. That said i cant pretend it didnt happen just because i dont blame Anderson for doing it.
