Second round Anderson illegally grabbed onto Sonnen's shorts for 20 seconds or so, in order to avoid the takedown. (Who cares, but it's worth nothing that he did it and we've never seen him feel the need to do that before.)
Then Sonnen tried a ridiculous spinning elbow for the first time in his career, fell down and Silva put him out with one shot.
Not an "obliteration" at all. Be honest and admit that at the end of round 1, you were concerned because the rematch had started exactly
the same way the previous fight had gone.
Yer, I still don'y buy into the rib injury either. Even if he did, if a fighter enter the ring he shouldn't have excuses after.
