You honestly think Sonnen wanted to throw that backfist? Backfists aren't dumb? Yes they are if you are a wrestler facing one of the most elusive fighters of all time. Why would a wrestler throw a spinning backfist against ANderson Silva?
He did because his TDs weren't working. So what else were he to do besides get desperate?
He ended up falling on his ass after he got handled the whole 2nd round. If you watch the fight it is easy to realize.
Why didn't Sonnen throw a stupid spinning backfist the whole first fight? Because he wasn't desperate. Because his TDs were working.
Whats the point in posting again if you're just going to repeat yourself? You're still offering nothing to back up your statement apart from your so called "logic" and stupid statements like "If you watch the fight it's easy to realize". Yeah buddy, you're the only person here who actually watched the fight, OK.
Do I think Sonnen wanted to throw a backfist? Yes, I know he did, or else he wouldn't have thrown it? Why would a wrestler throw a spinning backfist at Anderson Silva? The same reason they'd throw a jab, a right cross, a hook, a leg kick probably...to hit the guy? Chael's not just a wrestler, he's an MMA fighter and he's practised that move for years.
It's not like Silva threw some incredible counter to the SBF that clocked Chael cold, he just slipped, the same thing could have happened if he threw a leg kick for god's sake.
That point about Chael getting desperate because the takedowns not working is daft anyway, you're acting like Silva didn't stuff any of Chael's takedowns in their first fight. You have a much better chance of completing a takedown if you shoot in while your opponent has their hands up to defend strikes, so it's necessary most of the time to stand with your opponent for a bit to keep them guessing rather than just shooting the whole fight.
Anyway what do I know, you've watched a fight on TV, you're clearly the expert.
