    I don't care who wins the main event as long as it's a fucking WIN.

    As opposed to a draw?

    Silva clearly WON the first fight.

    I honestly only see this fight going a few ways

    1 - Silva wins by KO/TKO/Tapping to strikes or submission in the first 3 rounds

    2 - Silva wins a 50-45 or better decision

    3 - Chael wins a 50-45 decision


    Silva is supposedly making around $8,000,000 for this fight, and I wouldn't be surprised if he retires if he wins.

    The first fight was a great fight. I'm just saying that 5 rounds of strategic combat and close points decision is NOT a win win. I wanna see fighters come to FIGHT, not successfully implement chapter 6 of Greg Jackson's strategy guide book.

    OK...

    Neither fighter trains with Greg Jackson, so why would the statement need to be made?

    Oh, literal YMB. I was just using him as an example of someone who exemplifies everything that I don't like in MMA. Plenty of non-Jackson fighters have stepped into the cage to try and eek out a points win. I just think that's BS. What is this, fucking boxing?

    Holy shit. Has Silva ever done that at a stare down before? Only Anderson Silva could be that intimidating wearing a pink silk shirt.

    I will be absolutely SHOCKED if Sonnen wins. Sonnen fought flawlessly in the first fight and couldn't get it done. He will have to do it exactly the same to even put himself in position to win. Silva wins Saturday night and I can't wait.

    Do we know for a fact what was wrong with Silva the first fight? Did he have a broken rib?

    Vince would fail with Chael
    He wouldn't just let him rip & be himself, Vince would need to change & create his persona

    Regardless I can guarantee he's got his eye on the PPV numbers for 148. If it does well he'll be hurling bags of cash at Sonnen win or lose.
