quite possibly. And if you're right, then perhaps Sonnen is in for some explosive and violent fireworks in Brazil.
No, lol. Its an impossibility that his plan was to get dominated for an entire fight, to then pull out a submission with 2 minutes left on the clock. Dont take this the wrong way, but are you guys high or something? That is the most absurd thing ive ever heard.
So, to your eyes, the Anderson Silva that was on his back not moving for the whole fight was a man that was trying his hardest? Please.
The bad performance was either due to the rib injury, or Anderson's own showboating nature.
He may not have planed to submit him in the fifth round, but he definitely wasn't worried about being able to submit him. That was not a man who was feeling any pressure.
This also skips over the fact that Chael didn't do any damage while using PED's and landing the most strikes in UFC history. Anderson did way more damage off his back than Chael did with his bull shit LnP. And Chael was cheating. I feel like that can't be mentioned too many times...
It's like someone talking about how awesome Alberto Contador is at cycling because he totally rode away from Old Man Lance... except he rode away while on performance enhancing drugs, so it doesn't mean shit.
People who cheat do not get credit for their accomplishments. Do you really think Chael was confused about how much testosterone to take so he ended up taking at least 16 times the normal amount? (probably more, that's what his testosterone got DOWN to.) Who really
believes ridiculous shit here?
