Default Re: Did Sonnen lost gas and can't follow up or Silva suddenly had TDD?

Calm down friend, that's way overstating things. Landing one or two clean punches is not tantamount to TKO'ing someone, unless you're talking about shot Wandy Silva and not unshot Andy Silva. I've seen Silva take one or two punches from more powerful guys than Sonnen and go nowhere. I don't think there's any fighter at mw that could finish Silva on the feet just now. Belfort and Henderson both failed, and you're never going to find better punchers than those two. I'm sure Hendo landed on AS as well.
