Wild Finish to Silva-Sonnen Fight

UFC fans wanted to see someone give Silva an actual fight, and they got it. For 4.5 rounds, Sonnen dominated Silva, until Silva got him in a triangle choke and Sonnen tapped. It was a crazy fight which didn’t consist of Silva running around and taunting his opponent the whole time. In fact, Silva was on his back for basically the entire time. Silva had us fans plenty worried. I hadn’t seen Silva take that much of a beating especially for over 4 rounds. Now people will definitely be anticipating the GSP-Silva fight even more, now that we know Silva is human and how bad he looked when he wasn’t on his feet. From the way he was against Sonnen, you know GSP would be looking to takedown at every chance he could. Continue after the break for the rest of the UFC 117 results.
