  1. Chael Sonnen did an outstanding job and should be commended for his work. I was jumping up and down in my livingroom as he pounded Silva for 41/2 rounds. Silva who many believed was unbeatable will undeniably have little left after this fight and will retire. Chael said it before the fight that he would pound him and make him retire. I believe it. Did you see Silva trying to give an autograph after fight- he could hardly stand up and his faced showed a beaten fighter. Chael you broke his spirit. Your performance was outstanding and you should be commended on what you did. Great job. Get the immediate rematch if there is a clause in the contract. You deserve to be the guy who gets the win over Silva and nobody else. You beat the fight out of him and you deserve a rematch. Ask Dana White because Dana is likely to give it to you. What a fight. You deserved to win. God Bless
