    I think Sonnen is inside Silvas head big time based on the press conference. Not the same methodical approach from him this time around. Should Charms rattle him early I think Sonnen beats him this time around.

    Sonnen from Milwaukie, Oregon, walked out to "Too Much Fun" and fought like a bitch. We expect A LOT more from you, Sonnen. Do better next time. - Blue Collar Nation

    Sonnen kept to his game plan in the first round, and completely dominated. He got overconfident, and started getting clever in the second round... big mistake. You don't mess with Silva, he's a deadly striker. He should have kept him against the cage and dirty boxed, and then shot for takedowns in the center of the cage. Silva can't sprawl worth crap in the center of the cage. I can't believe he hasn't worked on that part of his game.

    I used to think that Silva was the best, but Sonnen has given everyone the blueprint for beating him. If GSP moved up in weight, I think he'd beat Silva, simply because he'd not spar from the outside, but instead would shoot. In fact, I think Jon Fitch would kill Silva, maybe even Koscheck.
