UFC 117: Silva vs Sonnen Results

UFC 117, Is Anderson Silva a Fighter or a Clown?

Category: MMA


With his mockery of Demian Maia at UFC 112, is Anderson Silva a fighter or a clown?

Feeling embarrassed after the fight, will UFC President Dana White hold on to his threat of cutting Silva from the organization if he does it again?

Backed by his sharp tongue, is Chael Sonnen a legitimate contender to The Spider’s UFC Middleweight crown or just a trash-talking empty politician?

All of these question will be answered once the UFC 117: Silva vs Sonnen results are finally in.

The event’s plot is truly intriguing.

    I’m not really that annoyed by Silva’s fighting style, he does what it takes to win fights. I think Chael Sonnen’s gonna be in some trouble.

    I think what Silva does is not enough. He could have done more.


  2. Stan Says:

    Anderson is the best fighter at Middleweight, Cael Sonnen is going to get dominated like every other fighter who fights Anderson Silva.

    I just hope SIlva will dominate every round. Not just the 1st and 2nd round then clown from Round 3 onwards.

    this is going to be a vindicating fight for silva.. after a disappointing performance in abu dhabi (although he wins via unanimous decision), he must show the mma fans that he is truly a warrior inside the fighting arena.. in this way, he can tell president dana white that he deserves to stay in ufc..


    ark Reply:

    I agree with you on this.

    pero kung tutuusin, malaking kawalan din si silva if ever.. baka bahagi lang ng marketing strategy un ni Dana White, ehhe..


    ark Reply:

    Haha, maybe. But knowing Dana White, he is firm on his decisions and he does what is good for the organization and the fans.

    this much awaited fight will surely be a frustration eraser to Silva. He will again show that he is the great UFC fighter in his time. But he should not take for granted the preparation Chael Sonnen did. let’s wait and see the performance of the two fighter. Will it still be the champion or another new champion.
