@bruno i click play but video wont load. is it up yet?


Bruno: Still works for me.

dmfh1981 Says, in 7-8-2012 at 01:46:05 from    

…….NOW where are all the Chael Sonnen nut scratchers??????????? Don’t worry, I’ll wait……
Anderson LET him take him down & LET him do whatever he wanted to in the 1st round ON PURPOSE…..the proof of that is in round 2- Chael couldn’t take him down AT ALL in the 2nd round, not even a body/judo throw! Anderson SIlva is the G.O.A.T period….

bartonfisk Says, in 7-8-2012 at 01:56:49 from    

Tomorrow theyll strip Anderson of the belt for that illegal knee, give the belt to Chael making him an even bigger heel… I hope.

Yh3D00D Says, in 7-8-2012 at 01:58:38 from    

nice illegal knee by Silva..

Kella Says, in 7-8-2012 at 01:59:38 from    

umm what the F*** happened at the end? What a weird finish

Freaklegion Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:03:25 from    

I had Chael winning this fight, I also had him winning the 1st one.

Damn… wow.. big props to Silva.

stefano Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:14:29 from    

That’s was awsome and the knee was not illegal chael got what was coming to him even tho I wanted to see him do well in this fight, but Anderson is just to much of a beast .

Turboobsessed Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:15:23 from    

That was a knee he learned from Sensei Segal! Haha I wanna see him try taking credit for that one.

MastaP Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:18:55 from    

For those of you who dont know the unified MMA rules… That was not an illegal knee by Silva. With regard to a grounded opponent, the rule states it is illegal to kick or knee to the HEAD. It is perfectly legal to knee the thorax/abdomen of a grounded opponent, which is where Anderson kneed Chael…

all good Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:19:25 from    

Lmfao at the illegal knee excuse, watch the replay pansies it was legal clear as day. Thank god lavigne wasn’t a dumb sonnen nut hugger and let that loudmouth get the beating he deserved for years

Fartbox McGee Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:19:58 from    

Who’s the amateur now?

Silva haters/Sonnen fans, where’d all that talk get ya?

Keep talking. The Spider will keep winning.

jona Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:21:28 from    

if chael stay in the basics he can 5 rounds any1 …but spinningbullshit like a moron omg

Fartbox McGee Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:21:50 from    

@Yh3d000D: What illegal knee? It was a knee to the chest, perfectly legal.

How many times does the GOAT have to beat your boy before you just own it? Ain’t no shame in losing the Silva, man, he’s the best. Just be happy that Chael’s the only guy who can give him a fight.

T’Challa Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:22:31 from    

Goodbye Sonnen lovers… back to your trailer parks. Illegal knee? That’s the best excuse you can think of?. A knee to the body of a grounded opponent is legal btw. Face it, Anderson Silva is the Greatest Fighter of All Time. A GREAT night to be an MMA fan. Justice has prevailed…

greysaku Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:23:55 from    

Wow…he gets finished twice, and u guys still talk s***…illegal knee? Watch the replay guys..Sonnen himself even said the knee was good..If sonnen acually took a knee to the face believe me he would’ve said something…He had nothing to offer but his admiration for silva after the fight “he’s a true champion”…So you sonnen fans just need to shut-up..

PitfighterZ Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:26:08 from    

You can’t really tell in this video, but if you can get a better one with the replay, the knee was to the body. Perfectly legal.
I hope the b.s. is over now and we can go back to discussing fights and not soap operas and fighters’ personal affairs.

ness2k Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:26:44 from    

That’s right bitch!

glassjoe Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:27:33 from    

Clearly an illegal knee……

Machete Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:27:35 from    

Fail Sonnen fails again! LMAO! What now Sonnen fans another rematch.

Common Sense! Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:29:06 from    

Definitely can’t believe the ref didn’t atleast ‘pause’ the action on that illegal knee! Ridiculous….

blahblah Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:30:44 from    

knee to the body, and its seems like chael verbally taped?

Cyclone Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:31:10 from    

illegal knee by Silva

Dave Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:33:34 from    

not impressed at all! silva was holding Chaels shorts the whole time! then he knees him in the face on the ground?? right after that Chael curled up and lost he may have broken a bone in his face. to me that was Not a win! I wanted Silva to win but that was B.S.
that ref is the dumbest ever Anderson was hold those shorts for a long time at the end the ref said don’t grab the shorts.

Adrian Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:38:42 from    

ahahahaha! That was a legal knee, as shown by the replay. Cry me a river Chael nut huggers. Your boy just isn’t that good.

TUNA Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:40:15 from    

The knee looked illegal at full speed but when they showed the slow-mo replay it shows it landing on the upper chest area…totally legal. Chael got sloppy with that stupid spinning backfist, tripped and fell and Anderson kneed him in the chest. Then Chael just turtled till the ref stepped in. Was hoping for a 5 rounder!

Freaklegion Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:42:07 from    

How was that an illegal knee? You can knee a downed opponents body. You guys are either high, or too wasted.

matthew Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:42:17 from    

Glad Silva won, but that knee to the face could be controversial.

scottc Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:42:41 from    

The morons of Fail’s “One Nut” hugging nation actually thought that Sonnen had Silva in trouble. Silva was playing it smart and let Sonnen use up energy in the first. He never panicked and he looked completely calm when Sonnen was on top of him doing absolutely nothing to hurt him. But what do you expect from a bunch of delusional sore losers who actually thought Sonnen was going to win..HAHA!

j172 Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:43:21 from    

What illegal knee? It hit straight on the chest!!!!

scottc Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:45:14 from    

SILVA is the GOAT!!!

Heel! Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:46:45 from    

So Silva Won?
1. Tried to stop the takedown with spreading vasaline on himself before round one
2. Held on the the Chael’s shorts multiple times after verbal warnings
3. Illegal knee?

Not hating, he one of the best if not the best fighters around but at least win fairly and shut all the critics up. For, me the champ lost respect tonight but he still has the belt

Horus Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:47:00 from    

was Chael hit with a knee while he was down? anyhow, Anderson did a good thing by showing respect at the end knowing he has a lot of influence on his country. He proved his point and now he moves on.

CS Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:47:29 from    

silva should be disqualified for the illegal knee.

marvelous mad madam mim Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:48:22 from    

looked like 2 illegal knees to me. rogan said something about it then they never mentioned it again. wtf is that retard ref doing? failcola. anyways anderson would of beat his ass anyways. chael looked hella hyper and out of his mind hahaha couldnt handle the pressure

FTW Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:51:26 from    

Oh my god!!!! What illegal knee??!!!! You kids are a joke! Keep your “knowledge” on-line, cause you don’t know s***! It hit him in the chest!
Look… You boy crumbled cause he got a bump on the nose!
Getting your nose busted, while NOT on steroids… Not very “American”!
He should consider the BBQ!

tko Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:54:30 from    

the knee was legal it was to the chest not to the face

boonching Says, in 7-8-2012 at 02:55:11 from    

that seemed like a quick stop to me but chael didnt seem to mind. I mean, they let Brock get battered for 5 minutes but chael gets hit once and they stop it? they should’ve let silva get some payback.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:00:26 from    

I watched it live and in the replay they show the knee was clearly on the chest.Before the replay I was saying the knee was illegal but it clearly is a legal knee.Like the one Rashad landed on Tito..The upper thigh didn’t even hit his face.100% legal.Like I said after the Bisping fight,if Chael can’t handle Bisping’s stand-up,he won’t survie Anderson’s.Go cry to sleep Sonnen fans,ANderson won the 1st fight legit by submission and in this one he finished him with a tko.No more excuses for you and your hero.

ThatDude Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:03:27 from    

Anderson Silva is a Pro. His accuracy is Pin Point ! Im Talking to all the people saying the knee was illeagle. Look at the Replay. Knee’d Chael right in the stomach, then used that same knee to pin his leg to the canvas while he delivered Brutal Ground and Pound !

mixte Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:09:10 from    

What’s all the whining about illegal knee? The knee hit the body, not the head! There’s nothing wrong with kneeing downed opponent’s body.

Sick Bastard Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:15:33 from    

Please people, the knee hit his chest. Stop trying to find something for Sonnen. Dude lost again and Silva is still champ. Not much to say now huh Chael?
Also, holding on to shorts didn’t win him the fight. A knee to the chest and punches won him the fight.

Goomba Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:15:46 from    

Guys, it wasn’t an illegal knee. Your man loss the fight. Dana White even told the media during the post-fight press conference that the video was reviewed and no illegal knee had occurred. I watched the fight myself — in great quality– and the knee clearly landed on Chael’s chest.

The following statement goes out to the following people. You were wrong, horribly wrong at that, Silva destroyed Sonnen and it took less than a minute in his most dominant position to do so. In other words, in your FACE to:

Kid Fury “Remember when Chael called Anderson an amateur? Well Andy just proved him right.”

Trent “Chael got in his head. Tomorrow he pound the Spider into oblivion!”

Kushover “Chael rules! He’s gonna land some brutal ground n pound and Anderson’s gonna get knocked out!”

Big Mike “Yea buddy cant wait!!!! Chael is going to beat the s*** out of silva. Yea Chael talks but its hype and show. Silva is broken and is beatable. All you Silva nutt huggers out their Chael all the way. And yes crafty shot but what a coward. If your going to hit someone do it. A shoulder shot lol what a p****.”

facephucks “I love how people state what they want to happen as fact or even a plausable outcome…Chael is going to rear naked stroke Anderson all night….”

CrazyWhitie “Chael Sold this Fight 100%… Silva lost alot of respect for that shoulder bump…. Chump… I hope Chael beats him bad tomorrow…. Plus we need a new middleweight champ”

Grape Soda “Andy better save some of his tough guy act for Saturday, he’s going to need it.”

cutu2bad “Challottes webb is and always has been a fake he has pulled a few cheap shots in his time and will never set foot in the cage after 2mora..”

f_u “LOL talk is cheap and so is Anderson Silva. Sonnen is gonna sub you this time”

andersonsmama “F*CK anderson silva.”

Acrilawl “Love how it’s all apes and beaners that support Silva and that’s it. Meh. Hope Chael rapes him for a full 5 rounds this time instead of 4.5.”

gonnagetgot “I would have bitch slapped Anderson just to remind him of who’s the TRUE bitch for that shoulder check. What a chump. Anderson isn’t s***, but a monkey.”

Hulk Hogan “Silva is a cheap piece of s***. He fights like a girl, running around and waiting for some chance to squirm up and put a stupid armbar on them. Why doesn’t he fight like a man? What a chickenshit he is. I hope Sonnen pounds the beJesus out of him for five rounds then tears off one of his skinny arms and shoves it up his arse. Nuff said.”

Sunfish Hero Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:17:20 from    

You guys need to watch the the slow mo replay. Those knees were to the chest and body. Chael caught ass whoopin’, the end. Hopefully that TKO will shut his dumb ass mouth.

Barrek Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:19:40 from    

So he checks Sonnen at the weigh-ins and hits him with a blatant illegal knee.

I thought Sonnen was supposed to be the unprofessional asshole. Guess not.

lllibbbo Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:23:13 from    

didn’t see anything illegal here, you can definitely knee a down opponent to the body. even Chael didn’t say s*** in the post presser, he took the loss like a man.

watchitagain Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:26:15 from    

Knee was legit, right into the center of his chest. Your allowed to knee a downed opponent to the body just not to the head. Legit technique watch it again, and even rogan said it was to the chest after watching the replay. Chael sonnen is a talks a lot of smack for a guy who got busted for roids, and still lost twice. What a loser.

ulisses Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:29:17 from    

Ed Soares did not translate all what Anderson said in the end: “Come to my home for a barbecue – MY WIFE WILL COOK!!!” LOL 2nd knockout, this time verbal. Who laughs last laughs better.

mmaboxingfan2 Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:33:50 from    

illegal knees and early stoppage but whatever chael was all hype screw him period the ufc is so phony.

rza808 Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:34:25 from    

You guys are tards. That was a legal knee. Accept the loss non-believers. Silva is that good. Like Sonnen even beat anybody relavent recently. Bisping? Dont make me laugh. Chael was all mouth and he got what he deserved. I will agree tho that Silva grabbed and held Sonnens shorts

ETK Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:35:14 from    

Chael like’s to take people down and pound on them. As soon as Chael tasted his own medicine he was done so quickly like that? That is wrong in so many ways.

cuzzy Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:41:15 from    

did any of you actually watch the fight? it was not illegal atall it was a knee to the chest fools get your s*** straight people need to watch the fight closer

norik58 Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:41:35 from    

Silva n1…….

SMASH Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:42:16 from    

SHUT UP with this illegal knees bulls#@t

the replay shows the knee was clean
i watched it on a 40″ HDTV

joe and goldy both said the knee was clean after seeing the replay

fufc Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:43:41 from    

there was multiple replays for those who watched the ppv, knee went directly to the body, didn’t even touch the head. get your facts straight

dave Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:47:24 from    

i thought everyone had seen the same contest. however wrong I may be….I for one cant wait to see the grey hair bierded brazillian getting knocked the F*** out!!!!

straightAhead Says, in 7-8-2012 at 03:49:33 from    

That knee to Sonnen was identical to the knee Rashad hit Tito with and no one was crying illegal then… Why all the hate now?

I also thought Anderson re-distributing the vaseline from his head to his body was a bit wierd but fortunately the ref wiped him down with a towel right before the fight began.

Chael Sonnen Sucks! He ruined his balls by cheating with steroids during his NCAA days now he has no choice but to take steroids in order to live like a normal man. So he over juices between fights to heal quicker and to push his cardio then tapers off right before a fight to pass the tests. He comes in to fight Anderson by immediately going for a takedown trying to jail r*** Anderson for the rest of the 5 minutes praying to God that the ref doesnt stand them up due to inaction. The ref obliges and they spend the round on the floor with Chael dry humping.

Second round opens up and Anderson is having none of that gay stuff from the first round. He then proceeds to lure stupid Chael into his web by lowering his hands so Chael, the dummy – thinking he can strike with Anderson – proceeds to whif a jab and spinning back-fist so bad that he makes himself fall to the ground due to the momentum – not unlike an uncoordinated 3 year old. Chael is now on the ground and Anderson decides to pull a move from Rashad and knees Chael to the solar-plexus causing him to collapse further but Chael being the steriod freak like a terminator is still alive and kicking so he stands back up only to have Anderson light him up once again with strikes to the head that cause Chael to collapse for the final time. Anderson finishes him off with a few more strikes to the head while Chael turtles up – not unlike Brock Lesnar when he got gutted by Overreem.

So now Chael fan boys are screaming illegal knee??!?! You guys are all losers like Chael!

Dream Machine… Says, in 7-8-2012 at 04:06:36 from    

Boo Hoo! – Knees are legal to the body, he didn’t hit him in the head. Rashad hit Tito with a knee in the same situation. Sonnen quit the 1st time Anderson actually caught him.

Ozinator Says, in 7-8-2012 at 04:19:52 from    

holding shorts is a big deal the way Silva was doing it. Stop the fight ref and call the reduction.

Don’t know how Rogan saw the knee as to the body after seeing it again but props to Goldie for at least staying quiet and not taking his initial reaction back. That was an illegal knee. Maybe Rogan went with the fact that the film showed “inconclusive” but Goldie and Rogan saw from their angle right next to the action.

To me it looked like Sonnen had his hands near his face but still got one of those knife like skinny knees to hi face when he wasn’t expecting an illegal shot. It doesn’t matter if the opponent covers up……it’s an illegal shot and it finished Sonnen

bas Says, in 7-8-2012 at 04:22:11 from    

Knee was to the body… thus not illegal. Anderson deserves to be a champion, he’s the best fighter ever on this planet!

dydelf Says, in 7-8-2012 at 04:40:52 from    

stop with the f-ing drama, the knee was to the chest, there was nothing illegal in it

Chech Says, in 7-8-2012 at 04:53:06 from    

For all those that say the knee was illegal, just shut up because it was perfectly legal. It was a knee to the stomach. Even dana white said it was legal and on the replay you can see it was legal.

wallie Says, in 7-8-2012 at 04:55:06 from    

aint a illegal knee up on upper body look good fools.
shorts grabbin was point reduction but he still murderded sonnen.
good stoppage or else sonnen would have complained.

afterwards silva acted like a true martial arts champion

RunGriffinRun Says, in 7-8-2012 at 04:59:09 from    

I think Rogan did mention it again, and said it looked legit, because it was to the solar plexus and not to the face. Chael also said he got hit hard to the body when we was down, so looks like Chael did it all for nothing. Bet Seagal taught Anderson that move!!

rtorres7794 Says, in 7-8-2012 at 05:12:14 from    

Dumbasses, the knee hit Chael in the chest, not the face

Sidekickz Says, in 7-8-2012 at 05:30:05 from    

You guys are dumb lol if you saw the ppv they replayed it and the knee hit the body…

KravMMA Says, in 7-8-2012 at 05:36:05 from    

Firstly, for all the Silva haters riding on Chael’s TRT enhanced Ass. Ha Ha, He, A’ha He, Haaa. You know ignorance really isn’t bliss. Where are all the beat down foreseers so frequent in these forums, how will you now feed your egos; your condescending slurs and racial hate filled rhetoric. ‘Chael should beat up this monkey’ (a post from a day ago which went unchallenged) well that Spider monkeys is slick and the great Chael hope now re-joins the queue.
Still I can see some of naysayers have returned. Yet rather than post a comments given credit where it’s due. For example, Silva’s improved ground control and take down defence etc,. You’re grasping at the myth of an Illegal knee. But then I guess those making these statements are just keyboard warriors who’ve never trained a day in their life, much less trained MMA. So let me school the uneducated amongst you. A knee strike to a down opponent is only illegal when it’s to the face, back of the head, or groin. The strike – not in question – was a precision one delivered to the sternum. Now, before you go crying but Goldberg and Rogen said. They both retracted their initial thoughts on reviewing the replay and also confirmed it was legit with multiple replays of the strike when summarising the night’s events. Yea, Chael showed up, delivered in the first round but again fell short of the mark. He was simply beaten by the better man. Silva is unquestionably, irrefutably, the pound for pound greatest MMA fighter the world has ever seen – challenge me if you dare!

abelino 51 Says, in 7-8-2012 at 05:44:03 from    

i see that fight live on fox sports and the replay show’s not a ilegal knee, chael sonnen was scary and just give up when feel the power of anderson whit out injurys the truth was expouse silva keep so easly the belt

jpkrunch Says, in 7-8-2012 at 05:44:50 from    

It was a knee to the BODY!

Jay Hay Says, in 7-8-2012 at 06:14:34 from    

KNEE WAS LEGAL. Watch the replays, 100% LEGAL. With all the emotion behind the fight I am surprised Silva didn’t do more damage. Yes, there was a minor incident of short grabbing, but it didn’t lead to any significant position. Likewise, Chael did some illegal back of the head strikes, but no one talks about what the loser did. It is a fight after all, and with so much at stake you can only expect natural human reflexes.

FailSonnen Says, in 7-8-2012 at 06:38:05 from    

Bunch of sore loser babies. Dana White, the ref and the judges all confirmed it was NOT an illegal knee. Jeez the depths you WWE fake UFC nuthugging Chael fans will go to. Just accept the defeat and move on.

Stranger Says, in 7-8-2012 at 06:43:54 from    

knee was to the chest, sonnen even said so after the fight

Stranger Says, in 7-8-2012 at 06:45:34 from    

and they did mention it again, it was the first thing they replayed after the fight..twice

zonytony Says, in 7-8-2012 at 06:48:18 from    

how was that an illegal knee? as long as its not to the head of a downed oppenent, it legal. I wanted anderson to win, but that was a early stoppage and a wierd fight all together.

EveryoneAboveMeRStupid Says, in 7-8-2012 at 06:50:46 from    

First off round one goes to Chael with the wonderful takedown and kept him mounted til the very end of the first round. Second round goes to Silva with the TKO. That knee was not illegal, being a fighter myself I thought it was illegal BUT after seeing the replay, it was directly to the chest of Chael knocking the wind out of him. So for all you RETARDS that said it was illegal, look at the REPLAY again and you will see it was a knee to the chest not the face.

sve Says, in 7-8-2012 at 06:52:47 from    

^ What Rogan said about the final knee was that it was *legal*. Difficult to tell for me because of the poor stream quality I’ve got.

LOLWUT Says, in 7-8-2012 at 06:58:13 from    

Wow. Don’t you idiots replay the figh? If you looked closely he kneed him in the chest (solar plexus) area.

But i think most of you are mad because your boy lost. Fyi chael still stopped tap like a bitch. Lol

Still gotta hand it to sonnen, He tried, I guess after sonnen couldn’t take him down anymore in the second he got desperate and did a uriah faber moment.. Lol shouldn’t gone for that spinning elbow.

wow Says, in 7-8-2012 at 07:04:35 from    

Look athe video for christ sakes it wasnt illegal, it was to the upper chest.

Silva submitted him 1st fight even though Chael was stacked with substances

And Silva just taught him a lesson again hahaha

straightAhead Says, in 7-8-2012 at 07:22:53 from    

Also, why doesnt anyone ever ask Chael if he is willing to move to 205? They always ask Anderson that question but it seems if Chael is hellbent on a title then the either has to wait for Anderson to retire or change weight classes.

In my opinion Chael is not a natural 185er… He is move of a 205er so it seems he should make a run thru that class. But then Jon Jones will be waiting for him and Jon is basically a less experienced version of Anderson but with better wrestling. Seems to me Chael is doomed never to that title but if he is serious about it then he should go for Jones’ title as he will have the experience advantage while Jon is still growing in the sport.

gear_up Says, in 7-8-2012 at 07:28:58 from    

If you watch the slow motion replay it clearly shows that the knee landed on sonnen’s chest.

cupOteaGov Says, in 7-8-2012 at 07:41:19 from    

That wasn’t an illegal knee! If you get a chance watch a replay, it was definitely to body. The ref wiped the vaseline off before the fight started, there was however quite a bit of shorts tugging going on but when it came down to it Chael got got his ass kicked on the ground which is more than he could do to Anderson in the first round, suck it ‘USA’ chanting idiots.

NoChi Says, in 7-8-2012 at 07:47:54 from    

Guys the knee is NOT ILLEGAL. Live they showed the replay from multiple angles and there is no doubt it was a knee to the body. Stop Looking for excuses. It’s not like Chael never cheated before.

London_Jones Says, in 7-8-2012 at 08:04:36 from    

just like a chael fan…
“the knee the knee the knee!”

bitch shut up! you really want Sonnen to get another shot??? like really? LOL you really think he would win the 3rd time around? LOL
wake up! the dream is over! no more s**t talking it’s over.LOL
but OOOHHHhhh no you would not listen, sonnen fans were like…
“his going kill Silva… WAR !SONNEN”
well you can all wake up now my little sheep…open your eyes…it’s over in 2! now go back to watching WWE as you clearly know nothing of MMA. feel free to bitch about the KNEE all day bitches of Sonnen!!!

god it feels good when your right…yes sir!

Hassan Says, in 7-8-2012 at 08:10:04 from    

what illegal knee are you guys talking about? it was a knee to the chest area. Joe Rogan reviewed it and even Chael said it hurt him (not complaining about it being illegal).

London_Jones Says, in 7-8-2012 at 08:13:16 from    

i’m a Sonnen:

“we are going to get you Silva… why can’t you just let Chael win?”

“that knee was illegal Silva and you know it *sob sobb*”

“Sonnen was winning up until that knee!”

“we want a rematch…WWE Rules!!”

“it was fixed!”

“Anderson is the one on TRT not Chael!”

“i hate the UFC now”

“why do i always bet on the loser?… *crying*”


vaughnrich Says, in 7-8-2012 at 08:55:41 from    

Assault at the weigh ins and what was the deal with the ref having to wipe all the vasaline off silva before the fight?? Throw this b***h to jones so we can get rid of his ass. Dude talks like he never hit puberty

darren Says, in 7-8-2012 at 09:23:01 from    

Look to be a knee in the face to me.

Machete Says, in 7-8-2012 at 09:31:33 from    

Cry me a river Sonnen fans. You want to b!tch about a perfectly legal knee. You should be crying about Sonnen failing at trying to pull off an Anderson type move by attempting that spinning back fist/elbow that he tried. He loaded up, missed badly with it and fell down into a bad position. Chael attempting that move on Anderson is like Anderson trying to shoot a double leg takedown on Chael. Get over it Sonnen fans you bought into his WWE antics, thinking he’s some world beater when he is clearly not. Your hero, the “American Gangster” looked like he was on the verge of tapping to strikes.

Acrilawl Says, in 7-8-2012 at 09:34:29 from    

Hope Rashad comes down and wrecks Silva the way Sonnen did the first time, before Silva figured out he could cheat and hold Sonnen’s shorts to avoid getting put on his back like a woman.

Beast w/ 8 Limbs Says, in 7-8-2012 at 09:51:02 from    

Some people…
You get a thought in ur head and you start shitting out of your mouth before giving it a second thought. Maybe another look would have made you realize that short holding/greasing had nothing to do with why Chael lost that fight. In fact to allude that some short pulling could defeat the mighty Chael Sonnen, and to suspect Anderson of greasing when Sonnen so obviously dominated that 1st round (better than he dominated any round in the first fight) is just disrespectful to Sonnen, who I’m a big fan of. Why did he have to throw that stupid spinning elbow?!?!?

Floodjlc Says, in 7-8-2012 at 09:54:07 from    

1) Knee was to the body….on ppv they replay it.
2) Big deal he held the shorts and broke a little rule…..I think a bigger rule breakage is Chael taking a bunch of steroids before the first fight.

Silva will forever be the greatest.

struc/tures Says, in 7-8-2012 at 09:55:55 from    

You Chael Sonnen Lover boys are crazy, That knee was in no way illegal.. It was to the body, Watch the replay.. It was 100% Legal.. The Reign of Anderson Silva continues and will til he retires.

MickeyMouse Says, in 7-8-2012 at 10:13:36 from    

I wonder if Chael killed himself yet?!?! LOL

He’s probably sucking on his mom’s titties right now.

War Silva

wrestlers say no to spinning backfists Says, in 7-8-2012 at 10:19:40 from    

I loved to see anderson silva beat Chael, but silva did engage in some pretty underhanded tactics as well this time. The shoulder to Chael’s chin when he knew Chael would be looking the other way because of previous stare downs, using vaseline before the fight on his hands, grabbing chaels shorts and punching him, ect… It is pretty scary when some as talented as anderson starts cheating as well. But there is nothing Chael can do because his previous use of trt in an improper way and all the trash talking he did.

rob Says, in 7-8-2012 at 10:23:12 from    

now lets belfor vs sonnen!

FURY Says, in 7-8-2012 at 10:24:43 from    

I really wanted to Assualt all those Sonnen Fans (you know the inbred 3 teeth rednecked country yokels) that were talking crap. But I won’t soil myself by stooping to that level. Now to the actual MMA Fans – All the talk about Silva doing something special .. I believe it was to be the fastest K.O. in UFC. If you noticed Anderon came out fast and hard in the first round, and paid for it. In the secod round he went to his normal style and K.T.F.O. of Chael. It would have been a 1st round K.O. if he had just fought his normal style. In the first fight he ddnt have that same movement evident of the injured rib. Chael now a 2x Loser to Silva and an all time Loser in Life.

wrestlers say no to spinning backfists Says, in 7-8-2012 at 10:25:31 from    

Same thing happened to penn when gsp hired someone to kiss him during his walk in, greased his back and neck to avoid submissions and grabbed his shorts early in the fight. These little things make a huge difference at the elite levels of competition. But BJ said he was going to kill gsp to hype of the fight and no one even cared.

mauimuaythai Says, in 7-8-2012 at 10:37:50 from    

Final Blow that took Sonnen out was the left mid kick to the liver!! 2seconds after the kick. DOWN!!
Spider #1 !!

FURY Says, in 7-8-2012 at 10:43:12 from    

I know I posted already ..but just like the sonnen fans ..they can only dish it out and can’t take it..as most of them too coward to come face the music.. It’s great to see an injured Silva endure 4 1/2 rounds of a pure beatdown from an enhancement cheater and still find a way to win. Yet chael takes three hits and loses all composure and becomes the wild man on campus. Goes down(almost literally) and has now answer to defend himself. It’s like what Rocky said in the last movie… its not how hard you hit – its how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward that is how winning is done. Well chael if Anderson sucks, you my friend swall-w.

wcoastassassin Says, in 7-8-2012 at 11:06:11 from    

Surprising totally dirty tactics by Anderson. The vaseline, holding the shorts for like a minute until he almost pulled them off. Several times in the first fight Chael was teeing off on Silva worse than that and it is not stopped. Not saying Anderson can’t beat Chael, I just don’t know why he felt the need to cheat so much.

dave Says, in 7-8-2012 at 11:11:30 from    

Looks like the WWE. All crap

thejudge Says, in 7-8-2012 at 11:15:49 from    

PLEASE tell me you morons don’t think that was an illegal knee. 1- he had no hands down 2- not convinced it was a face shot.

Domination. Total.

MelloJay Says, in 7-8-2012 at 11:18:30 from    

Illegal knee… I was ringside and saw his head knock back.

DanielMcfate Says, in 7-8-2012 at 11:20:00 from    

I would have liked to have seen the fight go into deeper water. Bad decision for Sonnen to throw a spinning back fist. He should have stuck to his game and been patient. Good finish by Silva when he had the chance. Still not an anderson fan though.

Iconoclast Says, in 7-8-2012 at 11:24:20 from    

The knee may have been legal, but it was dumb. The angle the ref had was nearly the same as the live camera angle, and it looked illegal from that angle. Just watch how the referee reacts when that knee is thrown. A different ref may have legitimately but wrongly stopped the fight.

Perulives Says, in 7-8-2012 at 11:27:27 from    

I wanted Chael to win, but stop saying it was a f****** illegal knee. You should have actually watched the whole fight in it’s entirety instead of coming here and whining about how Anderson won in an unfair fashion. Good fight for both fighters. Chael shouldn’t have thrown that wacky spinning backfist… Led to his early demise

Perulives Says, in 7-8-2012 at 11:30:37 from    

@Fury, sorry dude your rhetoric is really sounding like you are the 3 toothed redneck. I seriously doubt you have ever wrestled or competed in combat sport if you are saying Chael is a “loser in life”? Do you have any idea how much hard work and dedication it takes to become a national champion…TWICE? Whatever.. not a Chael nuthugger but your keyboard warrior comment just frustrated me lol.

Justme2012 Says, in 7-8-2012 at 11:30:51 from    

Ha Ha Ha….THat was knee to the body….Sonnen is just anothe loser with a big mouth….When the second round started he was already about to quit when Silva was coming on him….And dont hate people….Sonnen should just leave the UFC now….But he wont….Cuz his just a bitch with a big mouth…HA HA HA….

jeckle Says, in 7-8-2012 at 11:35:50 from    

Go watch ALL of Anderson’s fights. He always wipes the Vaseline from his head to his body. I’m surprised people haven’t notices, especially the ref; until now.

R32 Says, in 7-8-2012 at 11:37:31 from    

Greased? People conveniently forget that the Yves Lavigne wiped him down before the fight even started. I love hearing excuse after excuse on why Sonnen lost, he got dropped and finished. End of story.

Op_of_faith Says, in 7-8-2012 at 11:50:46 from    

…and all is right with the world. Thank you Mr. Silva.

bigtigger Says, in 7-8-2012 at 11:55:31 from    

After all that was said to hype the fight. At the end, aside from the first round, it was really just hype that came out of Sonnen.

Reallynow? Says, in 7-8-2012 at 12:06:27 from    

Doesn’t matter, Chael lost, but Anderson is seriously a cheap ass cheater. He’s allowed to do what he did at the weigh ins, he’s allowed the grease before the fight and he’s allowed to hold the shorts the way he did, clearly for longer than anyone else right in front of the ref and use that to his advantage. He’s allowed to cheat, pretty much. Not an illegal knee but that is actually sad that they let him do all he did. Oh well.

philo Says, in 7-8-2012 at 12:12:18 from    

the knee was legal.. u people are high or blind that think it was illegal.. i be gaining to see WWE style fans in this sport specially with comments bout illegal knee.. there slow motion replay up there WATCH IT PEOPLE..

samwir Says, in 7-8-2012 at 12:29:29 from    

What do you expect from people who vote for Chael…excuses. Really pathetic ladies.

I’m glad Silva dominated so convincingly. No point arguing any more points with internet trollers. Don’t waste your time teaching them about mma. It’s a waste of your time.

samwir Says, in 7-8-2012 at 12:35:28 from    

…and watch the Sonnen Bisping fight replay. Bisping held the fence multiple times with warnings and still lost, yet none of you complained then. It’s a part of the sport…little infractions. That’s what warnings are for. Okay, class is finished ladies.

I like both fighters, but Chael learned the difference between a martial artist and an elite athlete/cage fighter.

Freaklegion Says, in 7-8-2012 at 13:45:50 from    

I agreed with everyone here at first that it wasnt’ an illegal knee, but after pausing it at the first point of impact I’m not so sure now, looks like it’s first impact point is between Chaels forearms near his face while he’s trying to cover up.

Then after that it drops a bit and slides downward. It’s possible that even at that height the knee his him in the chest… just an interesting angle, would like a better one. For some reason I doubt we’ll see another angle of it though.

pillowhands Says, in 7-8-2012 at 13:55:29 from    

Chael gives up AGAIN. He took a dive at 8:25 and he wasnt even hit.lol Loser

Ozinator Says, in 7-8-2012 at 14:02:04 from    

The comments here are hilarious; It looks like Silva fans are so upset, they can’t see straight and think there is a mob of irrational Sonnen fans who are instead the angry jackasses. Your guy won, no one is yelling at you and yet YOU are freaking the fuch out? lol…maybe you should be angry at Silva instead of projecting this nonsense onto others

Gee Says, in 7-8-2012 at 14:09:04 from    

…And for anybody saying illegal knee…This is Anderson Silva, why do you think Chael would still be conscious if Anderson hit him in the head with a knee? And people talking s*** about Anderson for doing certain things/tactics…so what? Chael engaged in psychological warfare by running his mouth and guess what? Anderson shouldering him at weigh ins is psychological warfare. Putting Vaseline all over ones body to anger and disrespect an opponent is psychological warfare….If you are too stupid when it comes to mental warfare, than read up on Miyamoto Musashi.

rob Says, in 7-8-2012 at 14:09:38 from    

watch it slowly and in hd…the knee makes contact with the chest and his f****** JAW!!! watch his hands go limp right after the blow…Knee to the head is illegal even if you hit the chest too!

metaal Says, in 7-8-2012 at 14:11:19 from

They stopped the fight too soon. Sonnen deserved to get his big mouth smash in much more. Anderson proved that he can beat the best world class hold and pray fighter out there. To all the sonnen fans or should i say hipe and drama seekers your boy couldn’t ever beat anderson body but he tried to hump it.

mory Says, in 7-8-2012 at 14:21:01 from

iWay Says, in 7-8-2012 at 14:24:26 from    

Glad to see Silva beat Sonnen (again). At the end of the day, Sonnen is 0-2 against Silva. Silva has submitted him and TKO’d him. I can’t stand hearing how he thinks he is a better fighter than Silva. If you can beat him then do it! We have all seen that he can’t. Be about it, don’t speak about it.

BTW, this website is easily the best one out there for us MMA fans.

FTW Says, in 7-8-2012 at 14:26:26 from    

No one claimed “grease” in the 1st round.
I think maybe some of you just like the idea of greased up men!

Greased? that’ why he could took him down 4sec into the first round. Illegal knee? don’t mistake a short memory with a clean conscious.

Grabbed the shorts vs grabbed the cage, which is worse?

Sonnen only will be called champ when joe f-s up in his comentating ha ha ha . Sonnen go back to your home town and beat on kids a your old school and make them scared to fight or teach them to try hard,train hard and do the best they can because not everyone is the best, you should know because your a two time loser. Deal with it,be a man about, and don’t get scared,try strike three afterall baseball is USA national passtime?

phantastic Says, in 7-8-2012 at 14:44:23 from    

All of the illegal knee BS should not be talked about anymore. Dana said they all watched the replay and it is legal. END OF STORY. Sonnen messed up on the spinning back fist and Silva capitalized on the mistake and made him pay. He did what he needed to do. That’s just the way it is. I’m happy that both Silva and Sonnen were modest and respectful after the fight.

fworn Says, in 7-8-2012 at 14:57:26 from

Newfie Jitsu Says, in 7-8-2012 at 15:02:07 from    

^^ weather Yves wipped off the grease yes but the main fact is, Silva STILL tried to grease himself! I like Silva but the grease on top of the short holding… I no longer can say Silva is legit. He just tried to cheat. Plain for the eye’s to see. he didn’t even try to hide it. GREASER!!!!

Newfie Jitsu Says, in 7-8-2012 at 15:02:37 from    

WIPED typo sry.

Thxer Says, in 7-8-2012 at 15:03:16 from    

Definitely the best champ ever, but I was sad to see such a dirty fight on his behalf. Yes he was wiped down before it started but its VASELINE, not water.

I expected A.S. to win this time but wow was I surprised by his conduct. I’ve seen him do the wipe thing before, which is pretty bad, but this time it was RIDICULOUS. Dude was doing it repeatedly.

Oh and all the Chael hate. Sure he’s a big mouthed douche, but he’s taken the fight to A.S. like nobody else. That deserves at least some respect!

jeckle Says, in 7-8-2012 at 15:07:35 from    

The vaseline had nothing to do with Sonnen getting TKO’d. However, go look at all of Anderson’s past fights in the UFC. He almost always wipes the vaseline from his face to his body. I doubt it has helped him much since most of his wins are KO/TKOs. But it’s amazing that no one has noticed until now.

Realistic Says, in 7-8-2012 at 15:15:15 from    

Even though I was rooting for Sonnen 100%, Silva beat him fair and square. I’m still a Chael Sonnen fan and he put on an excellent performance up until the -LEGAL- knee. I’m bummed out about the loss, but I’m not going to rage and make excuses like these other idiots.

cigronne Says, in 7-8-2012 at 16:06:28 from    

Very disappointed by Chael’s way of throwing it the towel, once he was pushed out of his gameplan he pose no threat to Silva, he seemed to easy to put down and out. He showed no heart, technique or talent. Shame he didn’t look like a MMA fighter but a mere wrestler, I expected him to present more battle to Silva. Disappointed is how I feel!

chaelgonagetbeat Says, in 7-8-2012 at 16:18:58 from    

nothing like a bit a good knee to the chest all talk and no walk sonnen silva did it easy chael not as good when he not on the juice eh eh eh hahahaha he only knows one way and thats to lay and pray he is a one dimension fighter suck it up sonnen and go have sum bbq and retire hehe

howe Says, in 7-8-2012 at 16:19:15 from    

Kneee was clearly to body, idiots. Besides, nobody says a thing about the illegal “munch to the eye” strikes of sonnen on the final of round 1. Agreed that the judge could have let sonnen take a bit more.

howe Says, in 7-8-2012 at 16:22:09 from    

BTW the head of Chael heads back because anderson’s *thigh* hits it. Just watch it. That’s not illegal.

GuyFawkes511 Says, in 7-8-2012 at 16:29:42 from    

Illegal knee to the chest?
You guys are all retarded.
It clearly shows in the replay that it was to the body, not the head.
You can’t assume it hit him in the head initially because the ref was in the way.

wtfftw Says, in 7-8-2012 at 16:38:58 from    

Stop with the illegal knee comments you’re embarrassing yourselves. Some people just can’t appreciate precision. Chael lost because when Anderson turned his game on and actually started to defend, he wasn’t able to take him down. He got rattled, threw flashy s*** and paid for it.

Acrilawl Says, in 7-8-2012 at 16:57:18 from    

@Goomba I just loled at the fact that you actually took the time to do that you ****ing loser. Sit here and tell me you don’t have wayyy too much time on your hands. I love when worthless internet kids sit there and act like THEY just accomplished anything.

Anyway, this boiled down to Chael apparently needing the TRT he was using to fight previously and now that he doesn’t have it anymore he just can’t fight. Chael still r**** him for an entire fight. He proved that Silva is NOT the best fighter ever. There’s guys like Jon Jones who have never lost a round, and GSP, who dominate every round they fight. Silva does not. Meh.

You are delusional buddy.Chael never came close to hurt Silva in that fight so why would they stop the fight when Chael wasn’t throwing anything at Silva.You Sonnen fans were delusional before the fight and I thought seeing your hero getting dismantled would’ve changed things but you guys are even more delusional after the fight.

1- your the moron because you don’t have to have hands down for you to be considered a downed opponent. It’s 3 points, could be both feet and a knee, both feet and sitting on your ass etc.

2- I agree though, it’s not clear if it was to the head or not, looked like it to me though.

“Anyway, this boiled down to Chael apparently needing the TRT he was using to fight previously and now that he doesn’t have it anymore he just can’t fight.”

I’m pretty sure hes still Fu***** on it. You don’t just stop taking TRT. He even mentioned it during the press conference when he said he’s not gonna stop taking his “medicine”. Are you guys that Fu***** stupid? Hey retards! Dan Henderson still does TRT and will be on it during the fight with Jon Jones. Fu***** morons!

™100%SUCKAFREE Says, in 7-8-2012 at 20:17:15 from    

No need for championship rounds on this one. Give credit to Chael for his efforts, but lets give the champ his props. No matter how u feel about how it went down Silva clearly won the fight via ass whoopen on Mr. TRT Sonnen.

Tempted Says, in 7-8-2012 at 20:20:03 from    

He won again, but still got dominated by a guy who fights like a school girl. Hendo is a better wrestler with real power, the perfect guy to end Silva’s reign. Chael was gassed early and slipped.

Jones vs Silva. For gosh sakes its only a ten pound climb for Anderson and besides, he walks around at about 210 as his natural weight. My guess is that Silva doesn’t want to take the challenge at this stage of his life and career. Bummer for us all. This would be the greatest match-up ever hands down!

pinkelephantsmarching Says, in 7-8-2012 at 21:35:02 from

I can’t watch this replay enough. Beautiful display of dominance over an overmatched Chael. Great win for MMA.

amosaback Says, in 7-9-2012 at 00:03:14 from    

What REALLY surprised me was to see Silva, before the fight, rub the Vaseline from his eyebrows and cheeks onto his chest, shoulders and arms. The commission people saw it as well and wiped him with a towel, but wiping Vaseline with a towel quickly won’t make him feel less greasy. I thought this was a pretty cheap move by Silva. Was that part of his take-down defense strategy that he’d been working on?

Cyclone Says, in 7-9-2012 at 01:59:40 from    

Silva should have been stripped of the title….first he greases up and the ref couldn’t even wait for the match to start so he might have missed some hotspots of Vaseline.

That was an illegal knee under Chael Chin then the knee fell to his chest.The whole fence even moved too.

Close up of the LEGAL knee to the body to shut up any of the whiny crying bitter Chael fans

Will Bisping get a shot now?

Go buy some glasses and look at the replays and gifs.If your vision is good and you still think the knee is illegal then there’s nothing you can do for being stupid.

Why would Sonnen throw a spinning back fist? Was he dreaming of his first KO? Against A. Solva. Idiot. He must have been stunned sitting there waiting for Silva to attack and not popping up quickly. Silva is a master. Leave one openning and it’s over. Good night, Mr. Sonnen. Happy dreams.

@dmfh1981. You’re a legitimate idiot if you believe he got taken down on purpose. This is beyond idiotic. Also you

and some people here have some kind of pervert vision of what being someone’s fan means.
Why would I stop being Chael’s fan after he’s lost? Actually I should’ve stopped being his fan 12 times already – because this is how many times he’s lost for christ sake. Are you kids? Did you come out from the woodwork? Or the gutter? Where do you get your stupid, childish, moronic ideals of an ibecyle?
Are you a friend of someone only when he’s on top? And stop being a friend when he losses? Because this is the impression you make. I don’t know if you have enough brain cells to analyze what kind of garbage you’re saying. Seems like your brain stopped developing in the 10th year of your life and you’ll stay retarded for the rest of your miserable life.

and please stop this “illegal knee” and “greasing” bullshit. I’m a huge fan of Sonenen – he’s my absolutely favourite fighger in the whole mma – but he lost it FAIR AND SQUARE. Just top being stupid and accept it. Plus I know that Chael doesn’t give a s*** about it – legal/illegal. He never did – it’s a fight for him and he wouldn’t complain about anything. Just grow up and accept that he’s lost to a better man. He’ll be back stronger than before and will be driving fwd to get another shot at this belt, whether it’s Anderson or anybody else.

Why did Sonnen just sit there and wait for that knee? Give Silva an openning and BANG! Silva is masterful and creative. That knee was probably not something he practiced. The opportunity was there and he seized it. Very impressive.
How long will this loss humble Sonnen into silence? I’m guessing not very long.

GOAT! He’ll remain that way until Hector Lombard takes over, it’s too bad he’s getting old. Otherwise, he’d continue to be unstoppable. Just like Chuck Norris, it’d be classic.

Vaseline all over his body – cheating.
Grabbing shorts while landing a hard punch – cheating!
Sucker-shoulder at weigh-ins…some champ…If Chael hadn’t thrown that spinning back whatever it was supposed to be, he would have won. After the first round, Silva didn’t even know where his corner was at.

LOLWUT Says, in 7-9-2012 at 15:37:03 from    

I don’t understand this.. How can people say so much s*** about anderson?

How about chael using steroid/TRT whatever that s*** is called.. That worst because he did it before the fight.. Lol poor delusional chael sonnen nuthuggers.. Even chael himself confirm it that it was in the chest.

Tempted Says, in 7-9-2012 at 16:35:39 from    

It actually wasn’t legal. I thought it was til the slow mo closeup gif showed it hitting his chin first.

bigd88 Says, in 7-9-2012 at 17:10:43 from    

Forget the knee. Anyone see Silva wiping vasoline from his face all over him and grapping Chael’s shorts so he couldn’t take him down? Chael should appeal because of the vasoline alone.

eman187 Says, in 7-9-2012 at 18:27:05 from    

im pretty sure that Sonnen was eatin Silvas counter fist at 3:47 left in second round (slowmo-and-s***). hes movement after that was so bad. silvas knee was brutal, but def. legal. Silva is the beast and easily best fighter in the ufc. greetings from finland.

T’Challa Says, in 7-9-2012 at 18:35:44 from    

@ Tempted. Dan Henderson had his shot at Silva and got choked the F out!! Not to mention Jon Jones will MURDER Hendo on Sept 1st..

LMAO ROTFL Funniest moment in MMA History right here! This will play in Americas FUniest Videos some day LMAO!!

subidoo Says, in 7-9-2012 at 19:23:57 from    

I don’t think anyone can beat Silva! I think after a five more fights, he should retire with his good record. That would be bad ass. That would give him 20 straight wins in the UFC.

Newfie Jitsu Says, in 7-9-2012 at 20:18:23 from    

people are going on and on about an “illegal” knee and greasing. which yes i did make a comment about the grease futher up the list. that was just retarded to see him wipe it on his shoulders in FRONT of EVERYONE!! But no it didn’t make a difference in the fight but the shorts holding did!! Sonnen took a few hits AND was stuffed on a take down or 2 because of it!! Fight could have gone a different way if Sonnen got one of those take downs!! Very disappointing fight. horrible display from the champ. I was so excited for this one too!!!

axe pittbull Says, in 7-9-2012 at 22:54:43 from    

Anderson Silva is King!
Bruno is Prince!
Chael is servant!

bodybagseason Says, in 7-13-2012 at 18:49:54 from    

can’t wait until some makes a gif of a disco ball and strobe lights & insert chael below it spinning over and over like he’s dancing at a club….the crowd chants “go white boy, it’s your birthday”
