The stars had alligned for Chael Sonnen at UFC 117, whether you want to believe or not that Anderson was injured, or simply underestimated the wrestling credentials of Sonnen, if there was ever such a thing as a perfect night for the challenger to beat the champion, it was that night. And as the fifth round was closing out, everything was going according to plan, until Anderson had his way for just 8 seconds, and it was all over...just like that.
Now, Anderson knows what to expect. the fight is slated for Brazil, and as far as mistakes go, Anderson doesn't make many. In his last fight, Anderson was described by Kenny Florian as a learning computer, and when these two clash for a second time, I think the outcome will ultimately be the same, although I doubt it will take even half as long for Silva to finish him off. Either way it goes, I cant wait for this fight.
