Not exactly the full picture, he wasn't properly hurt IMO and it was more suprprise at sonnen striking and his injury.

Chael has no power, none its irrefutable

I know Spider would smash him to bits, but if Munoz can get it to the ground and perform his GnP, it's interesting to see.
The thing is Silva is so good at not taking damage on the ground, be interesting though definitely. If Sonnen had power its quite likely that he would've stopped Silva.

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.

Didn't he have to lose 20 pounds the day before the weight in? Maybe he was weight drained, he also looked tired and slow in the Bisping fight. Its possible he was missing an extra 'something' or maybe it was that he was hurt from a punch Silva landed. I personally think he should go try his luck at a Light heavy weight. He did call out Machida

Silva has an iron chin. I remember someone posting a video showing some of the shots landed on him and Silva acting like nothing happened.

The guy assisting Sonnen with his weight loss was gloating about what an expert he was and how strong and unaffected Sonnen would be

Yeah at his age and after all the Test useage he should move up to lightheavy if he wants to continue fighting where he will get ****ed up I'm sure.

Hendo landed shots on AS via GnP in their fight, and achieved nothing. Hendo shaking your hand at a Fans Expo probably causes more damage than Sonnen torquing his full body into a hammerfist to your orbital bone.

Sonnen landed few significant punches, it was all tippy-tappy bullshit. Even if he carried more power, I don't think his GnP was accurate enough nor performed with sufficient leverage to finish someone as tough as Anderson.

A good indicator of a guys power is his opponents face, body, legs after the fight.

Anderson looked gassed after their first fight, he ate a LOT of punches, but his face wasn't swollen. If I remember right, Chaels was that fight.

I was not convinced at all by his guy's theory about cutting 20 pounds on the last day and it's nothing. And then at the weigh-ins Sonnen looked like he was drained as **** and knew it.

This is what he said

You think if Hendo landed all that GnP vs Anderson that Anderson would have made it out? Really? No chance.
