Chris is entering his prime and Anderson is years beyond his. Chris is a threat in multiple areas whereas Anderson is primarily only dangerous on his feet. Chris secured that takedown easy and did plenty of work while he had Anderson down. If Chris doesn't dive for the kneebar Anderson spends the entire round on his back being punched. I can see Anderson winning the rematch but still see him as the underdog.
That said Anderson doesn't deserve a rematch. The fight wasn't close, it didn't go to the judges, the judges didn't score the fight poorly and the ref didn't stop the fight pre-maturely. He got KO'd. KO'd in a fight where he had virtually no offense. I'm all for acknowledging his win streak but it doesn't warrant a rematch.
Hating on Anderson Silva before it was the cool thing to do.
The idea of a "true number one contender" is the stupidiest MMA idea to be perpetuated by fans and media, EVER.
