Furiousmat Posted August 15, 2010 Report Share Posted August 15, 2010 I've been rewatching the end of the Silva/Sonnen fight multiple times and I think the reason why Sonnen failed to defend that triangle.. again! was cuz he got rocked just before. Just watch it again and tell me what you think. At around 2:30 left in the 5th round, Sonnen seems kinda lazy and just basically sits in Silva's guard. He starts throwing limp punches and Joe Rogan says "he's just gonna keep doing that". Goldberg answers "heh why not?" At this exact moment you see Silva throwing a punch to Sonnen's face. Now you usually don't see people getting rocked from the ground because guys usually stay very close to their opponent to avoid strong punches. If you notice Sonnen keeps throwing punches and at the second he eats that shot he crumbles on Silva's stomach and tries to hide. He stops even trying to do any kind of attack for a couple of seconds he just looks like he's in panic and is franticaly trying to hide his face and that,s when Silva manages to set the triangle. thoughts? Do you think it's possible that Chael got rocked by that punch? just wondering.. cuz it wasn't noticed even by Rogan I think we just don't expect a rocking punch from the bottom so no1 really payed attention.
