Plus, It's obvious Anderson was not 100% in that fight, as he easily broke Sonnen within 2 rounds in the rematch. I mean, unless Anderson and all of his trainers/training parnters were just completely full of shit during the making of "Like Water", which was filmed before and during their first fight. That and the fact that it's the worst he's ever looked in any fight in the UFC.
I think if you were to title your post it would be "Why Chael Sonnen out struck Anderson Silva". I didn't say Sonnen is a better striker, I was simply pointing out that it happened, regardless of the reason.
