Anderson Silva, Chael Sonnen

July 7, 2012               9:47 p.m.

The biggest MMA card of the year takes place Saturday night in Las Vegas, with UFC 148 headlined on pay-per-view by the UFC middleweight title rematch between champion Anderson Silva and challenger Chael Sonnen. Sonnen dominated Silva for nearly five rounds in their first fight before succumbing to a late triangle armbar submission. Sonnen has talked trash nonstop for years about Silva and an angry Silva lashed out verbally at Sonnen earlier in the week. The grudge match has led to UFC’s highest grossing Las Vegas event ever.

UFC middleweight title: Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen

Since 2006, Anderson Silva has reigned as the most dominant champion in UFC history. 14-0 in the UFC, Silva has had little difficulty with most opponents. The one significant exception was Sonnen, who dominated Silva with wrestling and was close to winning in decisive fashion when Silva caught him in a submission in the fifth round of their first encounter. Now, Sonnen gets his chance to pull off the win he almost had and end Silva’s long streak of dominance. A big question is how much a rib injury played into Silva’s performance the first time. Adding to the intrigue is that Sonnen has mounted the most aggressive war of words in MMA history against Silva and clearly gotten under the champion’s skin. Silva will have the opportunity to vanquish his rival in much more dominant fashion. It’s a fight with very high stakes.

Round 1. The Brazilian fans in attendance are loudly chanting that Sonnen is going to die in Portuguese. Loud Silva chants as the fight starts. Silva throws a few big punches and Sonnen takes Silva down 9 seconds into the fight. Sonnen immediately drops down punches on Silva. The crowd begins chanting USA. Silva is very active from the bottom but he isn’t attempting to stand back up. Sonnen gets Silva near the cage and looks to isolate one of Silva’s arms. Silva holds Sonnen and prevents Sonnen from getting enough distance to do damage. Silva briefly looks for an arm triangle from the bottom. Sonnen gets out and looks again to isolate one of Silva’s arms for a submission of his own. Sonnen drops down some elbows and works into mount position with 50 seconds left in the round. 10-8 Sonnen.

Round 2. Sonnen aggressively moves forward to close the distance and grab a hold of Silva. They clinch against the cage. Sonnen throws a few knees from the clinch. Sonnen drops down but Silva defends. Silva grabs Sonnen’s shorts and lands a couple punches. Silva opens up with punches and kicks and Sonnen goes for a desperation takedown. Silva blocks it. Sonnen misses a spinning strike and Silva lands some punches on the ground. Sonnen gets up but is dropped by a punch. Silva lands a few more punches on the ground and the fight is stopped.

Winner: Anderson Silva, TKO, round 2.

Silva after the fight says he doesn’t have a problem with Sonnen, despite Sonnen disrespecting his country. Silva embraces Sonnen, says he wants to show manners, and invites Sonnen to a BBQ at his house.

In the months leading up his UFC middleweight title fight with Anderson Silva, Chael Sonnen directed an unending barrage of insults at the champion. At UFC 117 in Oakland, Sonnen backed up every bit of his bluster for four and a half championship rounds.

Then he got caught.

The challenger Sonnen dominated the vast majority of the five round championship fight. He surprisingly got the best of the standup at the beginning of the first round, then utilized his wrestling to control and punish the longtime UFC champion.

Aside from a flurry at the beginning of the fourth round, Silva had no answers for Sonnen. Sonnen appeared a few minutes away from a dominating championship victory in the fifth round when the fight quickly turned.

Silva quickly took control of Sonnen’s arm and wrapped his legs around Sonnen’s neck. Silva proceeded to wrap up a tight triangle choke while simultaneously cranking an armbar. Sonnen dove backwards to try to escape the holds but Silva applied greater pressure and Sonnen was forced to tap.

“I’m devastated,” Sonnen acknowledged at the post-fight press conference. “The better guy wins ever time. He won. He’s the better guy.”

Silva for his part was gracious in victory.

“I really don’t have anything against Chael,” Silva said. “Outside the ring what he said is in the past. I don’t hold any grudges.”

Silva, however, did point to an injury as a cause for his generally unimpressive performance. Silva said that he suffered a rib injury training with Japanese judo gold medalist Satoshi Ishii prior to the fight and that a doctor told him not to take the fight with Sonnen.

UFC president Dana White was non-committal about where the UFC middleweight division goes from here. Vitor Belfort could receive the next title shot against Silva or the UFC could potentially rematch Silva and Sonnen.

“Fighting Anderson Silva’s a lot like eating Chinese food,” Sonnen remarked. “Twenty minutes after I’m done I’m going to want to do it again.”

Anderson Silva was only 110 seconds away from surrendering his Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight championship when he pulled off one of the most stunning finishes in mixed martial arts history in the main event of UFC 117 at Oracle Arena.After taking more than four rounds of pounding from trash-talking challenger Chael Sonnen, a thoroughly beaten-up Silva (27-4) caught Sonnen (25-11-1) in a triangle choke. Sonnen tapped out at 3:10 of the fifth round, though Sonnen complained to referee Josh Rosenthal. He apparently was saying that he didn’t submit, though replays indicated he clearly did.

Sonnen took Silva down early in each round and beat him terribly in each. Several times, Rosenthal was leaning in, apparently on the verge of stopping the bout.

The fifth round was no different from the other four. Silva, who was far behind on the scorecards, came out aggressively and tried to end it, but Sonnen took him down again. He was pounding away until Silva slipped on the triangle.

Submission defense has been Sonnen’s biggest problem throughout his career, and it was again on his biggest night. But he made himself into a major star, not only with his trash talking but also with his gritty performance.

The victory was the UFC-record 12th in a row for Silva, the longest reigning champion in company history. He has held the title since October 2006.

This has not been a good week for Chael Sonnen the political candidate. Chael Sonnen has the unique position of being the Republican candidate for Oregon’s State Legislature and top contender for the Ultimate Fighting Championship middle weight title. While promoting an upcoming August fight, Sonnen has been making outrageous statements. Sonnen is now trying to backtrack from some of these statement’s denying responsibility for a twitter account in which there is video of him promoting but which he now says he has had nothing to do with.
