Chael Sonnen To Teach Anderson Silva Lesson (Or Not )

by MMA Punk on April 15, 2010 506 views

Dana White announced on “Jim Rome is burning” that Anderson Silva will be mixing it up with Chael Sonnen at UFC 117 in Utah. First of all Utah isn’t exactly going to be friendly confines for the Spider but I won’t even go there.

So it looks like Sonnen did enough talking to get his shot at Silva after all. I say talking because his record’s not exactly great is it. He’s 3-1 in his second go around with the UFC which includes a submission loss to Damian Maia via triangle choke. In Chael’s defense though he did reel off 3 wins since, albeit decision wins, but wins none the less. He defeated Dan Miller, Yuhin Okami and the once sure thing for a title shot Nate Marquardt. I don’t know if a guy that was handled so easilly by Maia can even compete with the likes of the spider.

Sonnen went as far to say that some guys deserve to be beat up and Anderson is one of them. That tells me he plans on banging with Silva. Can that really be a good thing for Sonnen to do! I’m sorry but this doesn’t seem like much of a punishment for the champ , instead it looks like an attempt to bring all the Silva fans out of hiding and make Anderson look like a KO machine once again. Remember only 2 of Silvas fights have gone the distance and theres no way that Sonnen can out strike Silva so this fight only has one possible outcome, a KO followed by Buffer announcing AND STLL.

By late August I see Anderson Silva being everyones hero again. Damn I was just getting comfortable with this guy being the guy everyone LOVES to HATE. Something like Lesnar. Oh well, I guess there wont be “A Bad Guy” holding the middleweight title but a everybody’s favorite KO machine. Anderson “The Spider” Silva.

I personally HOPE and WISH desperately that Sonnen drags Silva to the ground and just ground and pounds his ass for 5 rounds, bloody, nasty and battered Anderson Silva leaving the cage mentally crushed.

Maybe a quick ropa-dope at the end by Sonnen to give Silva a little taste of his own shit.

I dont think Sonnen will be able to get inside the striking of Anderson… but if you look at his past fights… Anderson struggles with the wrestlers… Travis Lutter gave him fits but ran out of gas… Hendo… dominated the first round against Anderson but got caught in the second… Even marquardt… controlled most of the fight until he got caught… thats the problem for Chael… sooner or later Anderson will land and land big… I think Chael can make it intersting but will succumb to the punching power of Anderson, eventually!
