for me the result would have been a Win or a Loss so it only mattered how those are achieved... and for me this fight was verry anticlimactic with Anderson finishing with a knee to the body along the cage after a missed spinning back is not nearly as satisfying as Anderson catching him with a punch standing and finishing him on the ground with brutal GnP.. or Chael just get KO'd clean or sub'd or w/e ... or Chael would have taken him down and got the UD... but for me even though i accept the fight happened and the result i just wish it was flashier... on a scale of 1-10 in my head that finish was around a 3.5 is satisfaction for me...
thats why i disliked this fight

A buddy of mine, who is a huge mma fan, was a good highschool wrestler and he was big time saying that Sonnen was going to clown Silva. Wrestlers are very passionate about their trade and I feel like they see Silva as being one of their own.
ya i totally feel im one of those people... for me wrestling was like the red headed step child of our school even though my senior year we were the best in school history nobody gave a fuck.. before MMA a lot more people connected wrestling with homosexuality and it was just annoying.. so when i see a guy with wrestling skills in MMA i tend to cheer for him... and Riv i see your point about Munoz and Weidman (i like them both) but there is something about the pureness in wrestling that Chael represents whereas the other 2 have adapted it to MMA (Munoz Gnp and Weidman with his subs) just my thoughts on that
