Log in to Reply Black Dynamite July 10, 2012 I know this post probably won’t be read all the way down here but here goes. Some things I think we all need to remember. 1. Silva 37 is 2 yrs older than Sonnen 35. 2. Silva is not on TRT, Sonnen is. 3. The Ref wiped Silva down before the fight even started. You have no right to bitch! 4. The rules state that there are no knees to the head of a grounded opponent, (not thighs), and a knee is not a thigh. It never has been and never will be a knee no matter what type of Civil War surgery you’ve seen. http: //www.ufc.com/discover/sport/rules-and-regulations#15 Now on to the meat of the discussion. The knee clear as day is the only thing that hits Chael Sonnen. The thigh never even touches Chael. Not that this matters as a thigh is not a knee. Watch the GIF. Chael’s knees are up and his elbows and forearms are covering his head which is slightly turned to the right. Also, Chael’s back and head are up against the cage. So when Anderson Silva’s knee connects to Sonnen’s chest, his whole body is bounced off the cage. Now I hate to talk to everyone like a child, but I will if I have to. Chael’s head snaps back because it is in fact connected to his neck, which in turn is connected to his chest where a man with surgical precision just inserted his knee. Anyone can watch the GIF above. Log in to Reply the last word July 10, 2012 I’m with you 100% Black Dynamite! And to the rest of you conspiracy lovin’ dbags….bounce!

If you have a bad vision or your just denying the fact Get the heck out of here, he hit him really clean. He said he was going to do something that’s never been done before. And there you have it. Even tho Chael is a tough son of a gun. That knee was picture perfect, so much momentum. I’ve never seen no one do that before. I think this fight was a good turnout, but George and Jones are still young but. Even being 37 Anderson still looks like the most complete mma fighter. Even though gap and jones are awesome.

Log in to Reply cradze December 25, 2012 rules preventing the kick or knee to the head is a rule for safety reasons. This is imposed because of regulations from MMA’s critics and the government. But what MMA newbies should note is that MMA in its real sense is not established as a safe sport. It is intended to be a deadly reality combat sport. Knees or kick to the head is illegal only for safety reasons. I really don’t care if something touched Chael’s head because even if it did, it was not really damaging. The knee to the chest hurt Chael. Period! Log in to Reply « Older Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
