He wasn't laying there doing nothing, he landed some goods shots. It most def shouldn't of been stood up because he was still working, trying to land shots and improve his position. Silva was hardly doing shit off his back except for that triangle and a few elbows. I dont agree with you about it being boring, i enjoy seeing grappling

also i think a rematch will come, no one has ever done that to Silva. It may not be an immediate rematch but it will come

Are you fucking kidding me? the first 2 rounds sure, after that half the time it was just laying there and would throw a punch every now and then... And there would obviously be a rematch eventually, but im talkin right away

He's a wrestler, that's what he does, tires his opponent out. I don't know what you were watching tbh, Sonnen kept up the pace on the ground even if the shots weren't haymakers. Silva was completly controlled which is what a wrestler would try to doa gainst an elite striker.

+1

he sonnen was in the fight because of his wrestling ability...if he wasnt a wrestler, he wouldnt have a chance...but you have to give props to silva for his heart...the guy at the beginning of every round came out like it was the start of the fight...

yeah, Sonnen was pushing the pace if anything, Silva could hardly land anything

Chael's wrestling was really impressive

i guarantee if GSP fought silva, his gameplan would be the exact same as chael's

I nowhere said it should of been standup the whole time, your completly blowing what I said out of context, there was 2 maybe 3 times in that fight (after the second round) where they layed there doing nothing for a good enough portion of time to warrent a standup, fuck like I even said he probably would of just took em back down, I wouldn't argue that.

Don't blow what I said out of context. Nor did I say the fight was not exciting, so don't act like I said something otherwise, cuz those punches now and then were hard ass shots.

To me it seems your just tryin to make it out like im one of those morons that sits there and says "oh man there doing something other than standing there and swingin this sucks"

btw if you think that was boring, you proably think GSP fights are terrible because GSP lies on top of his opponents more than anyone

The context part was more directed at Van more or less. I even said the ground game was what Chael HAD to do, I don't deny that and didn't expect otherwise. Hell I'm surprised he rocked anderson in the standup but hit em just as hard on the ground and didnt do shit to em.

yep, silva's ground game is his "weakness", if you want to call it that (and sonnen proved it today)...thats probably the only advantage gsp has on silva....other than that they are pretty much even...

as much as i want to see gsp vs silva...its probably not gonna happen...jon fitch is probably gonna get another shot at gsp...

Becasue for those luls it was, and in the later rounds it really was, 3rd and 4th round were bad, a big shot every 20-30 seconds (most of which missed, got defended, or grazed) isn't that exciting, but the first, second, and 5th (and little bits of the 3rd and 4th) were awesome.


As far as the GSP thing, they really gotta do something with the welterweight division, meaning move GSP up to middleweight, and hell even throw em in with sonnen first and see how that goes lol, and then throw em in with silva. I think he'd dominate both.

But this whole repeat fight senerio with GSP is making me hate that division more and more. Its repetative, boring, and uneventful. GSP is going to dominate Koscheck, and he'd dominate fitch...

GSP said in an interview that when/if he fights Silva, he will retire afterwards. Yeah Jon Fitch will get a shot after Kos. Jon kinda fights like GSP too, but GSP is far more athletic and has a crisper stand up imo.

Silva's "weakness" was first slightly exposed against Dan Henderson. However Chael took it to another level.


But yeah Roy Nelson has a great chin, Matt Hughes is still a beast and Alves needs to move up cause this is his 2nd time not making weight

GSP has really cleaned out WW, he needs to move up. Fitch is his best competition and GSP would eat him. Actually Jake Shields might be the 2nd best WW.

I have to be honest, I'm pretty sure the fight was rigged.

Nothing there seemed right at all.

That was the oddest fight I ever watched. It was a topic of discussion with the guys I watched it with

Not like Dana White and Co. are choir boys. The question of a sporting event being rigged should always be debated.
