UFC 148: Chael Sonnen or Anderson Silva?

June 22, 2012

Who takes the belt home this time?

On August 7, 2010, Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen faced off for what would become one of the most amazing fights in UFC history. For four and a half rounds, Sonnen was able to dominate Silva. He took Silva down at will and landed 289 strikes according to CompuStrike. But with 2 minutes left in the fifth round, Silva landed a triangle choke and was able to seal the deal with a tight triangle-armbar. Sonnen tapped and the rest was history. If you haven't seen the Gracie Breakdown of this fight, it's definitely worth a watch.

In a few weeks, they will meet again in the much-anticipated rematch. Will Sonnen be able to dominate the champion for five rounds? Or will Silva, once again, do what he does best and shock the world with a slick submission or devastating knockout? Post your predictions on the Gracie Academy Facebook Page and on July 7, we'll see if you were right. .
