There is no doubt that Anderson Silva one of the best pound for pound fighters had a lot to prove after his performance at UFC 112 when he danced his way to victory against Demian Maia in a lacklustre performance which had UFC president Dana White threating to pull Silva of the main card of UFC events if he ever tried to it again, and gladly we get what is possibly the best fight of 2010 between silva and Sonnen. I'm sure Dana was delighted with the amount of trash talking that Sonnen did in the months leading up to the fight, he even basically guaranteed victory, and it's well worth watching the always excellent countdown show thats on disc 2 before you watch the event itself, especially if you don't already know the outcome and the controversy that followed in September. Silva has always had a problem against great wrestlers and that's Sonnen speciality, he was even an olympic alternate.
The co main event featured the returning Thiago Alves who found out in march that he had arteriovenous malformation in the brain from a pre fight CAT scan. Alves had the corrective surgery in March and this would be his first fight in the Octagon since UFC 100, he would be taking on Jon Fitch who is known for his great wrestling. Elsewhere UFC Hall Of Famer Matt Hughes would fight the Renzo Gracie trained Ricardo Almeida.Read more ›
