Guida - don't know the other guy
Dos Santos

Jon Jones was something on Sunday, definately heating up the 205s!

The only one I disagree with is almeida

Sonnen kicked the sh*t out of Silva for 4 rounds and at 3:10 of the 5th got arm bared.
Sonnen did everything he said he would do other than win.
Silva went to Sonnen after the fight and got on his knees as a jesture of respect!
Definitely fight of the night and I would think headed for a rematch.
Great night of fights!

Looks to me that silva rope a doped him that fight, he tried to finish him in the 4th and failed and took a lot of last wind punishment. 5th round triangle was clear that was his agenda, sonnen had that arm just laying there for a good 20 seconds before the triangle was place and only did that cause he was tired as hell.

All around I think this fight will make silva reconsider retirement now that he knows there are those who will make him work.

Maybe...Silva took too much and looked too bad?
I think Sonnen forgot....and that was that!
A rematch would be interesting.

Awesome fights indeed. Anderson took a beating and a half.
