    UFC 148 Silva vs Sonnen II .....looks like the title will change hands....

    I hate to say this but the big rematch will see the title change hands.

    The longest reign in the UFC will probably end with a quick victory by Sonnen even thought I think he's the biggest idiot in the UFC and is just a 1 demensional wrestler.

    Considering Silva's age of 37 and nothing for him left to prove in the UFC a lost won't really damage his reputation of the best pound for pound fighter in UFC history.

    But I'm still hoping for some Anderson Silva magic with a quick knockout of Sonnon but realistically this probably won't happen.

    We'll see tomorrow night.

    At some point Silva will show his age, I'm just not sure that it will be tomorrow, Silva by Knockout, the guy is a master technician in the ring.

    Speaking of age, I see Tito Ortiz is still fighting, man, he has been around it seems forever. Is he still with Jenna Jameson?

    Just watched the fight again and Anderson Silva just keeps on proving why he is the best ever in MMA. Sonnen continued where he left off last fight and did what he said he was going to do which was put his head on Silva's chest and drive him to the ground. Unfortunately for Sonnen pinning a guys shoulders down for a 3 count don't mean anything in MMA and Sonnen was not able to submit or do any significant damage to Silva while in control on the ground. Great move by Silva in the second round to stand there with his hands down and have Sonnen come to him with punches which opened him up for Silva to counter which obviously led to his devestating knee to the chest. Once again true champions find a way to win and Silva almost always finishes his opponents to leave no doubt who won the match. I did not think Silva was gonna win but it's good to be wrong sometimes.

    Tino Ortiz did retire with a lost but he's still got Jenna Jameson to go home to....but after a couple kids I don't know how good she looks now?!?!

    Does this qualify me as a MMA expert?.

    Silva was dominated on the ground in the first round, he won because Sonnen fell down after missing with a spinning back hand punch, after he fell Silva jumped in for the kill, it would have been interesting to see how the fight would have ended had he did not fallen, I'm thinking that it would have been another barn burner of a fight.

    Silva's so quick that the reason Sonnen fell was Silva's ability to avoid Sonnen's first punch attempt and then ducking his spinning back fist before falling to the ground. Silva basically lured Sonnen into a striking match by standing in front of Sonnen with his hands down and relying on his ability to avoid punches and counter strike when Sonnen opened up. Great fight.
