    Nah…anderson let him beat on him for 95% of the fight, only showing flashes of effort for a few seconds each round, then taps him out in the last round with 2 seconds left.

    If anderson silva put in effort then chael wouldn’t have staggared him and him him like it’s easy to do, and he would have tried to fight off of his back like nate did.

    Or maybe chael is just super duper amazing like some people belive because they hate silva so much, suddenly chael is an amazing striker too.

    hell no he’s gonna have to work his way back to the top with that boring ass fighting style of his. i bet he’ll get submitted again in one of his next three fights because that has always been his weakness

    You’re an idiot. The same thing didn’t happen at all. Brock lost one round. Chael had that fight won for 5 rounds. And messed Silva up with some standing strikes too. I don’t care what anyone says. He won that fight. And even though he didn’t really win it people will remember him forever for beating Anderson’s ass like that. Goddammit. haha

    I knew everyone would try to take it away from Chael if he won. Now people are trying to take away the fact that he beat Andersons ass by saying Silva didn’t try? That’s retarded. He got his ass kicked fair and square for 5 rounds. Silva won the fight, but it’s not like he wanted to get hit that many times. It’s pretty low to act like Sonnen didn’t do something miraculous. He will have everyone’s respect now for sure.

    No immediate rematch for Chael. It’s not like they’d have given Silva one if hadn’t gotten the submission and lost. Immediate rematch only if there’s controversy like suspect judging or an insane referee.

    Hey I like Chael. I picked him to win, tonight. He beat the crap out of the man for five rounds, but he doesn’t deserve a rematch.

    This sport cannot and should not becomethe “best two out of three” sport. My boy lost – fair enough. Let Marquardt or someone else have a go at Anderson.

    I think Sonnen summed it up very well at the post fight presser.

    He and Silva should be the next coaches on TUF then fight one another in the tradition of TUF. ..and as he said again, it would bring in historic ratings.

    Sonnen straight beat him up, all 4 1/2 rounds ! NOBODY has ever done that to Silva in the UFC. He had him shook in the 1st pretty bad,
    Then tossed him on his ass and punched him in the face untill
    he made a error and got caught, it happens. Anderson could
    not get to his feet once in the whole fight after Sonnen got on top,
    Silva had the top for 30 seconds in the 4th and got reversed and pounded on some more.

    That was awsome Octagon control and ground and pound, maybe the best wrestling performance ive ever seen ! I thought it was very exciting ! Edge of your seat fight ! All you Anderson fans were scared
    just admit it…

    I WANT A REMATCH ! ! ! Sonnen is still ranked #1 middle wight… who could beat him ?

    definately not. chael clearly tapped. not to take anythin away from chael he was very close to becoming the new champ. he rocked anderson several times and out wrestled him, but he slipped for one second and anderson slapped on a perfect triangle. however, chael can say he’s the only one to **** up anderson silva in his prime lol

    First off, I don’t like Sonnen at all. Second… He impressed me purely on how freely he engaged. When was the last time someone stepped in the cage and brought the fight to Silva from the word go? If you don’t think he deserves an immediate rematch, well did Shogun deserve a rematch with Machida? I think so, and now he’s the champ. Personally I think Silva started out trying to prove a point. It’s not every fight he comes to the cage wearing his BJJ uniform, black belt and all. I think from the get go he wanted to win by tapout. He didn’t think it would be that hard though, I’m sure. He almost lost because of it. Now, if Silva ended up losing he would get an immediate rematch. That’s what BJ is getting next UFC. If a contender loses he should fall back to the number 3 or 4 man in line. If that happened to Shogun most of us would be upset now. I think it all depends on the performance. Whether you think Silva was throwing it, playing to his injury, or actually getting destroyed… Silva was losing all 5 rounds until he pulled that triangle and arm bar out of nowhere. Sonnen should get another chance soon, because I think this was the kick in the ass Silva needed to come back like a beast… Just like GSP after Matt Serra humbled him. I hope Dana and Joe think it’s a good money maker so it will happen.

    Indeed he did lose fair and square but if we are going to talk about being fair lets look at BJ Penn with his rematch…if he gets one on a poor performance then Chael should certainly recieve another shot.

    no that was one and a half rounds Cheal had 4 1/2 rds look Cheal
    is a douche but he beat the chit out of Silva but he tapped maybe it was
    a reaction and I think the ref should of made him tap more or verbally
    tap cause he was doing the right thing but it was one tap but how ever he meant it it was clear but rematch yes but Vetor has been waiting a while but should have to fight one more before a title he hasnt fought in this weight class so yes he should get the rematch

    you know if Silva would of keep up but in his last 3-4 fights he looked like chit just didnt show up to fight as a fan that sucks like tonight glad he won
    but he didnt even really fight after these last 3 fights he drops as p4p just
    like Fedor is no longer King of Kings if it would of just been one fight
    that sucked fine but it isnt so hopefully he will come out blazing with
    Vitor cause if Cheal can do that damn Vitor will smash him

    Chael def deserves a rematch idk about immediate with Belfort in the wings. I dont think i can handle the immediate trash talking to start again. I say let belfort get a shot, and give Chael time to get his mind and body right and healthy, and work on sub defense in the meantime.

    I say no. However, I am not a fan of immediate rematches at all. Only under extenuating circumstances… For example, the Mac Danzig vs Matt Wiman match-up. Thats an obvious candidate for an immediate rematch. Other than situations like this, why would they?

    Good Day Mr Madness…

    I understand from your comments that you believe you have a good knowledge of mma, perhaps you do, and if so, congratulations.

    However, if it were truly the case, that you did have good knowledge of mma, I am suprised by your position, “anyone with submissions brainiac” could beat Chael Sonnen.

    Understanding your desire to be correct I assume that the truth is important to you and because of this when you ask the question, “is it true that “anyone with submissions” could beat Chael you will of course find that the position you assumed was in fact indefensible.

    I hope you are able to learn from this lesson and look forward to seeing positions which can be adequately defended and built upon in future.

    Take care of yourself,
    O

    The difference is BJ Penn was the champion when he lost the belt to Edgar and Chael Sonnen never was the Champion! So for him to get an immediate rematch when he got submitted like that, although he was dominate on a fighter who had broken ribs is ridiculous! Yes BJ Penn did get a rematch because he was the champion that lost the belt, Silva was the champion that retained the belt by Triangle Choking Sonnen, so for a challenger to get an automatic rematch would be RIDICULOUS! And is probably never going to happen. I have a strong feeling You’re extremely racist.

Also the elbow strikes to his head were also Miraculous as well. Sonnen didn’t do shit except beat up on a guy with broken ribs anyone could of done that even your pussy ass self. So get over it.

    Anderson won. Period. Cheal didnt do shit he said he was goig to do. There is no whole in Silvas head, he’s not retired, and he still has his belt. Cheal did take him dow and punch him a few times, but he also took more punishment than he gave…. hints his gaping cut over his eye… along the top of his forehead…. and on the bridge of his nose. as there even a scratch on Silva? Didnt think so. Oh and Silve beat him FROM THE BOTTOM. Where Cheal said he was invicible. LOL WOW. WITH BROKEN AND BRUISED RIBS. Cheal good fight. but know when your out matched and out classed.

    No rematch. He goes to the back of the line. Anderson won. Doesnt matter how, or what transpired during the fight. He won. Without getting hurt pretty much at all. Cheal is a bigger GSP. they get you on the ground and stay there because they cant fight like men.

    To people wanting silva to lose it looked like he was getting beat on. Those punches didnt effect him. No cuts, bruising, or swelling. Look at Cheal’s face….. and your saying he was winnig okay. Cheal knew going into the fight he was going to lose. thats why he talked so much shit. And then he goes in there all angry, and slams Silva around for about 4 and a half rounds. AND GETSTAPPED IN 3 SECONDS LOL. THIS SAME SHIT HAPPENED TO FEDOR AND PEOPLE JUST LET IT BE. Fedor got popped by Arlovski (who should have won the fight) and fedor landed a lucky punch. Nobody talked shit about that win. STOP HATING ON SILVA, HE WHOOPED THAT WHITE BOYS ASS LOL.

    Absolutely he should get the title shot. Not to rag on Belfort, but he got a title shot based on one fight, that wasn’t even at Middleweight, and name recognition alone, if he’s so good he can fight someone like Nate Marquart or whoever in the meantime and sit around and wait. As silly as it sounds Sonnen, who really only got a title shot because Belfort couldn’t fight in the first place, earned a title shot with that loss.

    You seriously think Sonnen is a better striker then Silva?Best explanation I have for Silva is that he was surprised and caught off guard by Sonnens striking,Because in the beggining fourth round Silva was smashing on Sonnen until he was taken down.

    i agree that he got caught and chael dropped him at least twice, i agree that he dominated the ground game and was easily winning the fight until the triangle. however, anderson on numerous occasions stood with his hands down and let chael punch him in the jaw. this is easily the closest anyone has come to beating him, but even chael was allowed free shots. we have seen silva dominate, and for the first time we saw him get MANHANDLED and still win the fight. after this fight i don’t see him losing. no one will put a beating on him like that again, and it is obvious you can never count him out

    I believe his comment ” anyone with submissions brainiac” was reference to how many times sonnen has been submitted. Any real fan knows that. Engage your brain before letting other people know what you are thinking, otherwise you can appear somewhat inept of mind.

    I agree Vitor has been waiting for title shot and must be next for Silva. The Rua rematch was due to bad judges as far as I’m aware. If Rua had lost due to submission or TKO he would not have had rematch. I would certainly like to see Silva Sonnen 2 as much as anyone but you have to give the other guys in line their shot.

    Silva and Sonnen both deserve some credit for this fight. Silva for surviving and winning, Sonnen for proving to us all how overrated Silva is, and taking it to Silva the whole fight. Some children on here post as if they have been fighting for years, when in reality I bet at least half of you wouldn’t have the bottle to ever go toe to toe with someone.

    I am sick of immediate rematches. Chael fought well. Silva remained composed and when Chael was worn down he seized the opportunity and won. That is how fights go. Let’s see something new.

    an imediate rematch is for a contovertial loss, this wasnt. if silva had of won a decision in this fight i would be calling for the rematch aswell but sonnen was finished by silva. FINISHED.

    saying that, should carwin get a rematch against brock. afterall he did dominate most of their fight aswell. if mma worked that the person who dominated the fight and losses get an imediate rematch nobody would ever fight antboy diffrent

    all you maggots can get off the bandwagon now, gale sonnen still lost, he put up a good fight, but like a dumbass always leaves his head in there, all you nuthuggers will be jumpin the vitor belfort bandwagon too until anderson whoops him too, then you will jump on the next bandwagon after that too, this site should be called ufcchampionhaters.com

    Agree with that 100%. GSP would have lasted all 5 rounds controlling Silva. GSP has to be more confident now in his chances against him.

    Chael Sonnen is a pussy. He talked all that shit about how tough he was but we saw who the tougher fighter is. Anderson fought with broken ribs and took a beating for 41/2 rounds without breaking. Sonnen was in the triangle for 15 seconds and quit. What a pussy, the way he talked he should have just let Anderson break his arm.

    this was one of the best fights ive seen in a long time, I give props to Silva for showing how tough he really is and coming away from the fight with the belt. Sonnen impressed the hell out of me however, I think Sonnen owned Silva the whole fight. Sonnen didnt win but I think he proved that he has the ability to beat Silva. I say yes, give him another chance at the belt.

    dana white said that the fight is what makes legends. anderson getting beat up 4 rounds and half 5th and submitting him. chael doesnt deserve a rematch if he gets caught with first triangle anderson gets on him. chael got caught in the spiders web and chael fans cant get over it…. stfu kids chael is already over coming in 2nd. i think anderson silva is guna retire chael if there is an automatic rematch for u cry babies

    First off I agree with youre logic in that sense but mine was based soley on performance. Secondly, saying im racist because my logic is different than yours is bullshit. Just because my views differ yours doesnt mean im racist. Leave that foolish accusation out and I can say though I dont agree with you 100% that youve made a good argument.

    My stance is strictly on what i seen in the octagon not what was done outside of it. As a fighter I like to base decisions on performance not circumstance. Assuming everyone who would like to see a rematch is racist is beyond stupid. The only zombified mass i see in this situation is the ones stuck on race rather than the fight. If there is any problem its prejudice on your part by assuming if you want to see chael vs. silva 2 your a racist. Chael or Silvas race or beliefs mean nothing to me…just the fight.

    Thats true, the only reason people hate is because they dont understand. Its harder to keep the belt than to get it. You should appreciate the fact that he actually defends it whenever asked.

    No rematch! Sonnen taped! AS did not win via decision, he pulled the sub! Chael was on top of him for 30 minutes and could not finish him. What kind of idiots ask for a rematch? AS would kill him in the rematch!
