Anderson Silva gets manhandled and beat down fir four and two thirds rounds and pulls a triangle choke out of nowhere to retain his title.

Overall a great night of fights, best UFC PPV in a long time.

:(

Sonnen didn't tap, the guy tapping looked nothing like him. Possibly Hispanic.

So damn close. I hate Silva with a passion, but you can't say the man isn't in fantastic shape. If Sonnen just had better cardio this could have been a KO. He was scoring tons of hits, but they just didn't have the power behind them.

Great people think alike.

Sonnen didn't win, which is sad because there was a good fifteen minutes of thinking about what a world with Sonnen as champion would be like, but he did make himself a star. If he gets another win over someone, he should go right back to the front of the line.

What does this have to do with "Big Ben to the Rams?"

It was inevitable - your threads are folding in on themselves.

All throughout the leadup to this fight, people were talking about how Sonnen creating a pro-wrestling feel with his trash talk. And now, here's a total pro wrestling finish --- the heel dominates but the face pulls out a narrow win in the closing moments. Sets the stage up perfectly for a rematch that will draw even more money.

Sonnen was humble during his post-fight. True class act.

Silva, after being dominated in every aspect of the bout and pulling off a miracle claims he fought against doctors orders.

Some champion. Gets destroyed and then cant give the guy credit and blames his performance on a rib injury.

I hate Silva more than I ever hated Mir.

Roy Nelson suffered his first UFC defeat, but it was on his feet. Please feed him to Lesnar soon.

I don't understand why everyone loves Silva. He comes off as very arrogant imo.

Nelson took that asswhipping and defied all logic by not going down when he was hit like his head was a punching bag.

For me, it has something to do with how he is the most amazingly fluid and accurate striker I have ever seen in MMA.

Sonnen did to Silva what Dan Henderson was doing before he forgot what he was doing and lost. I don't know that there is another middleweight in the UFC capable of grinding out rounds against Silva like Sonnen, and I'd love to see a rematch.

I was most impressed by Matt Hughes on this card. I was 50/50 on the fight, but thought that if Hughes won it would be by late TKO or decision. That sub shocked me.

I loved how Merchant kept saying, "but Chop Chop, you didn't answer my question" and then repeat it. Then he would answer some other question again or talk about himself. Priceless.
