so u hold anyone ever caught taking steroids over their head for their entire careers, even when they test negative for fights?

ure either a big Silva fanboy or just a huge Sonnen hater. either way ure not being realistic to the actual fighting reality between them which is the bottom line. lol @ really thinking Silva earned that win and could do it every time dude got his ass beat bad...and lol @ him being so injured too

You're being silly. Sonnen admitted to doping leading up to the fight. You are either a Sonnen fanboy or just have no idea what doping can do for an athlete. The practice is banned and illegal for a reason. If you want to debate about whether or not it should be allowed that would be a whole other topic but when one guy is taking testosterone and the other is not that's a clear advantage. And to top it all off, he still lost.

while Sonnen impressed me in his win against Stann, he did cheat against Silva and lucky sub or not he still won, I think he will be better prepared next fight and I dont see it being close. I think AS underestimated Sonnen to much and the next fight will prove if the win was a fluke or not.

oh i'm a fan alright since i know what i see being reality vs what fans of a popular star athlete will tell people or make excuses with. otherwise i'm completely impartial to Sonnen. i respect his game and thats all there is to it. i did not see Silva as the better fighter whatsoever, in fact he deserved to lose that fight, and everyone watching knows it. he got EXTREMELY lucky where Sonnen got careless.

i guess ure right about the doping but i still don't think it would've made much of a difference. Sherk gets caught doping and he's still losing. it wouldn't change nearly as much as you're pretending in a rematch. if u think Silva is all of a sudden going to stop Sonnen's take downs or his ground and pound, because he isn't juiced, i think you're being completely unrealistic to Sonnen's abilities vs Silva's weakness.

and why wouldn't u want to see them fight again? especially if Sonnen is tested clean? if u think Sonnen is so bad, and Silva is so superior, why would u dodge him? Sonnen clearly deserves a rematch considering he's the only opponent Silva has had in a long time that wrecked him. as a fight sport fan u should WANT TO see that rematch....

thats really all i want to see, because if Silva can't catch him with a strike or sub, he's going to get beat down bad just like their last fight. there are way too many excuses for Silva especially with his injury which is lame to me because i didn't notice him being nearly as injured as some people pretend.

i honestly don't see Silva wrecking Sonnen other than catching him. and like i said earlier i don't get how as a fight fan, a lot of u pretend Silva hands down won it, where Sonnen completely dominating Silva for rounds HAS to account for something.

let me say this since in pro sports in general theres a lot of exaggerations to injuries. If Silva were truly so hurt where he couldn't do much, it would've shown with him constantly wincing or favoring something but there wasn't. i thought it was real lame of him to make that excuse right after the fight.

other than GSP or even Hendo, i don't know who else most of u would rather see Silva fight anyways

who ever said Silva won hands down I think anyone with eyes saw it was 4.5 rounds of utter domination, I just think Silva didnt look himself that night, yet he still won. Chael's kryptonite really is a submission defense, he's lost 2x to Jeremy Horn , Maia x1 and Paulo Filho ( who wasnt in his right state of mind in that fight I might add) all by sub, I believe Sonnens trash talk got into his mind when Chael talked trash about Big nog Jits and he went out to prove a point. ( Hence he came out with the Gi) and was attempting to sub the guy, which kinda backfired on him which is why he got thrashed.

The only people I actually want AS to fight would be Sonnen, GSP and possibly Jon Jones. Silva aint exactly young anymore so he should be fighting the best while he can still perform at a high level.

There are different kinds of doping and different levels of doping. Not to mention, the advantage gained from it may not be enough if the athlete himself didn't have enough original potential. And Sherk tested positive only once at the age of 33 or 34, an age at which a lot of athletes start declining.

I'll watch a rematch if it happens but when I say Sonnen doesn't "deserve" a rematch I am directly referring to the fact he is an admitted cheater who still lost. No, I don't care about him being in the lead before he lost because that edge was partially based on the advantages he gained by taking testosterone. It's his own fault for undermining the validity of his performance by cheating. And then he lost the fight anyway. The only reason he's up for consideration is that Silva has been kicking everyone's ass because he's the greatest middleweight of all time. Unless they move him to another division there may be no challenge left and he has to defend the belt against someone. But does a cheater deserve another shot? No.

Silva is bein a p*ssy now and is trying to duck Sonnen and Hendo. He better fight em both. I don't see any other fights for him. Either fight those 2 guys or retire. Don't wanna see anything else.

the reason this dude is getting a rematch is this fight brings money and the fans, they want to see Sonnens WWE trash talk, Silva aint exactly a draw and some people seem to dislike him as seen in recent matches. I thought before Sonnen was all talk but he can back up his words if somewhat some of what he says are delusional as hell. Right now its not who's deserving but what matchup will make the UFC the most money.

why is he being a *****? He beat both of them, plus he said he will fight who ever Dana and Joe Silva tell him to fight, dont believe everything Ed Soares says cause he's a douche.

Henderson may deserve another shot. But it's strange that you question Silva's manhood. You do realize you're talking about one of the toughest fighters to ever walk the earth? A "*****" isn't going to clean out an entire MMA division. His only loss in the last 6 years was a DQ. And seeing as he's beaten both of the "Contenders" you mention saying he's ducking them seems a bit overboard.

Sonnen completely dominated Silva that match until that sub, and that IS lucky, no matter how much skill or greatness u want to pretend to attribute to Silva for that one move. everyone watching that thought Sonnen was going to win it easily, and yeah while we all knew Silva could sub him with a counter which he did, to me thats luck when ure getting ure ass handed to u 95% of the fight. actually Silva is VERY lucky Sonnen didn't land some of those ground haymakers square on him.

What is luck about catching Sonnen in a submission? That's how he loses most of his fights.

i think thats also the reason Silva's manager doesn't want him to fight Sonnen, and they're going to try to duck him i bet. Sonnen is a handful for any fighter where they HAVE to bring their A game and are going to get beat up bad, unless they can catch him with a sub or a lucky strike, but overall he's going to work the shit out of anybody he fights. i don't want to hear the steroid excuses either, as long as he's clean for the fight thats all that matters. theres just so many lame excuses to me when Sonnen clearly wrecked Silva, but dude is a workhorse monster that would be the last person i'd want to fight in UFC. i swear he's the most underrated, unrecognized fighter in UFC....

LOL at lame excuses. You're the one who keeps saying it's all luck, but only Silva has lame excuses? GTFO.

It always seems like the ones who hate Anderson Silva also have very little knowledge on MMA.

"Fight two guys you have already beaten or GTFO. You being the most amazing MMA fighter does not amuse me."

Give Silva superfights since he has 4 more fights left. Jones, Shogun, GSP and Rashad.

give me a f'in break. ure the one hating on Sonnen talking about his roids, then talking about Silva's injury, how much u hate him, and notice nobody made ANY excuses for Sonnen. ure so partial its laughable, and i swear most of u diehard MMA fans are some of the biggest fanboy type fans of fighters its just sad(see fedor )...like i always said u all are worse than kobe fans on NBA forum and thats say a LOT

yeah a fight where Sonnen COMPLETELY DESTROYED Silva 99% of the fight, and loses because he gets carried away and lets Silva put his legs over his shoulders and triangles him IS luck. say what u all want about how there is no luck, there is a hell of a lot more said for dominating fights and being caught in a triangle at the end of the last round being luck, than the dominator being lucky he dominated what do u think that strike count was between Sonnen vs Silva? 100 -5? did Silva do anything the entire figtht but get his ass beat, then the triangle? how people can't see that as more lucky than Siilva clearly being the superior fighter is just retarded to me
