Anderson had cracked ribs because Chael cracked them. Even ED SOARES ADMITTED TO THIS!!

This time Chael will break all of them and not give Anderson a chance to move much less throw up his legs.

He showed great wrestling defense and scrambles, I had forgotten he was such a good counter wrestler. And his stand up looked as good as it always does.

Its odd that there's so much praise in a post about a fighter who I really don't like.
I am w/ you, I didnt really expect him to have an answer at all for Sonnen's wrestling/control/pace but Bisping proved me wrong. The guy is legit and if they were to fight again I would pick him to win. Having said that, Sonnen/Silva is the better fight, A.Silva is a horrible match-up for Bisping stylistically and could really see him getting KTFO if that fight were to happen.....

Even if he didnt admit that I am so tired of people bringing up injured ribs; when he got into the octagon (assuming he was injured b/4 hand) then he agreed it wasnt an issue and would not use it as an excuse. Having said that, I do believe A.Silva will win the rematch b/c he will be more agressive this time instead of letting Sonnen take the fight to him.....

I was really suprised with bisping, I thought this fight was gonna look like Chael v Stann and Chael vs redhead and I wanted it to. About 3 mins into the fight I was shocked and knew bisping was gonna win, midpoint of round 2 pretty much confirmed it, Chael was completely demoralized and tired but bisping was pumped with confidence and endurance, not to mention he didn't have much time to prepair for this fight.

I can't beleive im saying it but Im a fan of bisping after tonight, He did what he said 'If I get taken down he wont be able to hold me down' and he did! He was humble in defeat even though he won IMO.

I think a rematch is a MUST, maybe not an instant rematch but hopefully soon. After this fight I think I'd rather see bisping v silva than chaels rematch.

You guys know whats interesting??? I think Brian Stann would beat Bisping. I think Bispings Kryptonite are the Hendersons,Wanderlei,Stann. He just doesnt do well with people who are skilled and have massive knockout power. Bispings style is actually a very good matchup against the likes of Chael. If Bisping went up against Brian Stann i would put my money on Stann. Possibly the worst matchup for Bisping would be Mark Munoz. Strong wrestler who has his own bomb in his hands and ground and pound.

That should be the next matchup (Bisping vs Stann). They both just lost to Chael so i dont see why not. If Bisping does better against people with Stanns style then we know he has improved his weaknesses.

I missed most of the fight, but if it's true that Bisping was the better technician in the first two rounds, then this reeks of a political "decision."

Chael vs. Anderson was and is the marketable fight; everyone knew this. I remember when Oscar De La Hoya moved up a weight class and fought a "tune up" before getting Bernard Hopkins.

His tune up opponent literally ran him over; Oscar's pillow fluff punches did about as much damage as q tips being thrown at a brick wall. But guess who got the "W?" That's right, the golden boy.

I'm surprised fight fixing has taken so long to rear it's ugly head in MMA.

And which fights have been fixed???

This was a close fight and ANYONE that knows how the Scoring system works knows that Chael Sonnen won that fight. I very easiley give Rounds 1 and 3 to Chael Sonnen and round 2 to Bisping. To make the statements that you made in your post is not only baseless but also ignorant.

I'd like to see a rematch to be honest. I think we might one day.
For the title this time, so we can see a 5 rounder. God i wish last nights fight was longer.

I'm still trying to work out how one judge scored it 30-27 to Sonnen.

You should really see the fight first before calling something a fix.
