May I mention that Sonnen still managed to wrestlerape Silva for 90% of the fight and that Silva's "busted rib" has never been independently verified, at least to my knowledge.
That being said, I see no reason why he wouldn't lose the rematch. Which is why it's a shame Sonnen won the close decision - would be more amusing to see Silva Matrix-dodge his way around Bisping's pillow-punches with both hands behind his back.
The UFC middleweight top is pretty weak, IMO. Not seeing any real interesting matchups for Silva right now.
The only person who lost last night was the spectator. That was some safe-ass fighting from all televised.

3. Chael Sonnen needs to STFU and get back on the roids ASAP. Otherwise Anderson Silva will doubleleg him, g'n'p his face till the ref jumps in, and then talk to Joe Rogan about how he plans to "chegar ao topo de minha esposa" to celebrate the victory.
4. Phil Davis' beard looks disgusting up close.
Definitely. Silva's wrestling is not good. It's the sole chink in his armour and the rest of his game is good enough to make up for it, but it really is not especially surprising to see a MT/BJJ specialist get outwrestled by somebody with as legitimate wrestling a background as Sonnen.

Just watched Sonnen vs Bisping. Unanimous decision?? Really???
I was ready to hear a split decision win for Bisping...
To quote dana white on twitter
"30-27 is soooooooo bad it's insane. That judge should never be allowed to watch a fight again!!!!!"
