Anderson Silva returned to form at the weekend by smashing Chael Sonnen after being wrassled for the first round. It might not have lived up to the hype but we got to see both guys fight at their best, the ending of a highly entertaining feud (at least for now) and Silva addressing his only recent blemish to retain his standing as best P4P fighter in the world.
I thought I would be sick of the guy by now, but I am really finding Chael hilarious at the moment. But despite all the laughs, this guy is serious about fighting. He has Anderson Silva’s full attention and both guys look to fight with a mad intensity. The fight is tomorrow. If this fight only even meets half of the hype that has been surrounding it, then we are all in for a treat.
The UFC Flyweight tournament hit a big snaffoo when a silly Aussie read the scorecards incorrectly at UFC on FX2 earlier this year. Presenting Demetrious Johnson with the win over Ian McCall for what should have been a draw, denied us all of what could have been the most epic fourth round in all MMA ever.
In the rematch tonight we get to see the round four that should have been and a couple extra. We will again rally behind our mustachioed flyweight hero as he quests to become the first UFC Flyweight Champion.
Again… WAR UNCLE CREEPY!
